Et voila!

I had several assorted gem chip bracelets that I bought ages ago that have been hanging around in my goodies box. I have been wondering what to do with them and thought I would send them to Beccy to see if she could find some inspiration and work some magic. Et voila! She came up with some lovely sets using a variety of silver, pearls and charms. Beccy used gorgeous iridescent blister pearls with the amethyst gem chips and has transformed what was a plain bracelet into a much more interesting piece. Thanks Beccy!

Just a small collage or collection of goodies to be found on the website. Some gorgeous examples of lampwork, Venetian and Murano handmade glass pieces. All finished with either hand forged silver, Bali silver or Karen Hill Tribe silver. I'm also loving the aqua obsidian natural volcanic glass pieces at the moment. You can read more information about obsidian glass on the website by clicking on the glass information or on the link of the write up on the piece.

Sign Of Spring !

From snow scenes to snow drops in the space of a few weeks! I was so happy to see my little garden jewels appear today. A sign that spring is just around the corner with more jewels to follow like daffodils and crocus. The blue tits are eyeing up the new bird box so hopefully they are going to take up residence very soon.

Snow Scenes

We have yet more snow! I love the silence on a snowy night when everyone is warm inside their homes and no one in sight. When you can't resist just one more look outside. The scene is quite magical and there is a certain stillness in the air. Tonight was no exception. One more peep and I am wondering how deep it will be in the morning. It is the most snow we have had in eighteen years!
