Well here we are end of the tax year and school hols start today! two weeks of 'what are we doing today Mum?' will I survive? yes as I just adore spending time with my little darlings LOL and knowing that the last weekend of the hols I get to go away to Jarrahdale to play with other ladies and recover from said two weeks!! I do love them!...been in a couple of swaps, Nat's Canvas Niche swap which I will hand over tonight and it's late as in handover as the lovely Dawn was a bit ick! I also had a one for one swap with the other lovely Julie, we did necklaces and I also have Dawn as my Mystery Muse partner for June which I will also hand over tonight and as she works she won't see this post until later.
So first Julie's beautiful necklace...wearing it tonight to show off. I love the atmostsphere of this piece and the construction is perfect. I am a huge fan of Julie's work and treasure each piece.
Next, Canvas Niche - this was fun, once I got started! we had to use the back of the canvas ie. the niche! this piece is called 'Time to Create' and hopefully Dawn will like it - can't wait to see her piece she made for me, it's going to be good (an understatement).
Mystery Muse - this necklace I have made for Dawn as my MM for June. The blue beads I made from polymer clay and attached bead covers, a couple of old buttons, some red coral and a piece of glass I found on the beach in Ireland many years ago - like well over 25! you know that glass that gets worn smooth by the sea? and a couple of wire hearts and swirl - hope she likes it.
These are a few recently finished pieces. I love the wire weaving and decided to try using it for a ring and another bracelet. The beaded ring I saw in a magazine and had to have a go thinking it was very silly but I wore it out and lots of people loved it. I thought it was 'over the top' as it moves but....it was a hit. I also made the celtic knot bracelet from a picture I saw in a book just to see if I could 'do it' as I really want to be good at wire techniques, so this was practice but it's very nice to wear and again a lot of people have admired it. So thanks for looking.
