Merry Christmas

I'll be taking a break from blogging over the festive season
but I'll be back in the New Year. 

Merry Christmas everyone! 

Snowflake Pendant

 I wanted to bead a rivoli to make it look like a snowflake,
ready to wear on Xmas day. 

Luckily when my other half came home 
and had a look at my latest creation he remarked
' That looks just like a snowflake' 
- My work here is done! 

Necklace For A Scorpio

Perceived as dark, brooding and manipulative types 
Scorpios often get a bad reputation as the dark and dangerous 
sign of the zodiac. 

They can be intense but  also
 inquisitive, sensitive and emotional.

The Scorpio does have a good side! 

A scorpion would rather tuck itself away in its home
staying safe rather than running about 
using its poisonous sting with wild abandon.

It doesn't confront, rather it saves its sting for
 the occasion when  it is itself confronted.

For this necklace I chose dark colours of black and gunmetal 
to give a bit of a dark and brooding feel to it. 

patterned heart bead to represent passion 
as the Scorps are said to be very passionate types. 

Also rumoured to enjoy spending money, 
(especially other peoples (!), 
I thought 'black diamond' rivoli would be a good choice.
