Shade of Grey Bracelet

The beautiful rose bead is a creation by the very talented polymer clay artist Elise Canning. 
It is so delicate and beautiful.  There is even a tiny Swarovski crystal in the centre of the petals.

I just love the pretty clasp ...

... it seems a shame to hide it at the back of the wrist!

My Beading Diary

The long awaited update on my first attempt at a magazine project! 

My first attempt at using size fifteen beads. (The absolute terror...) 

Oh my, oh my, size 15's are sooo fiddly!!

This is a present for my Mum who enjoys reading this blog. 
(At least I hope she enjoys reading this blog...!)

 So I'm sorry Mother but NO PEEKING!  

(I have put all the pics of my progress after the break...)

Inspire Me

File:Peacock front02 - melbourne zoo.jpg

I think these beads are pretty fabulous.  
They shine so many different colours 
from green to navy blue to purple and brown. 
Peacock colours, with an added drizzle of gold! 

Peacocks are really influencing everything right now.
From Mac make up and their  'Peacocky' collection 
to L.A's lovely  nubar nail polish - shade 'peacock feathers'.

Rose Bud Beads

With Valentines day approaching fast I thought I'd share these pretty rose bud beads with you.

I bought them from Beads Unlimited, along with all the rest of the goodies in my on-line
sales spending spree.

I couldn't resist buying them for a project I have in mind.
