♥ A little bit of elegance ♥




I made these very elegant pieces of jewellery yesterday and I just love them.  I love the simplicity of them and think they would look lovely on a bride or to wear to a special occasion.
I used Swarovski white pearls and clear Swarovski crystals, and wire wrapped them.  The chain and earwires are silver plated as from personal experience sterling silver goes black so quickly.
I also found a tip if you keep your silver plated jewellery in plastic grip bags it keeps them from tarnishing and also away from perfumes, hairspray etc ....

Thanks for stopping by ♥

♥ Handmade wire wrapped birds nest pendant ♥


Just popping in with my latest jewellery creation ... a little wire wrapped birds nest :)  I'm very pleased how it turned out.  Made myself one too to wear and hopefully get some orders ;)
Let me know what you think?  I would love to hear some feedback.

I haven't been making cards lately, don't worry I will be, at the moment I am just finding jewellery making very enjoyable and relaxing.  Plus it is something I can do whilst relaxing on the sofa as you all know I suffer with a lot of pain.

Have a fab day!! ♥

♥ My little handmade Swarovski cross pendants ♥





I have been keeping myself really busy :)   I made all these gorgeous wee Swarovski crystal crosses today and have them in my Folksy.  If I say so myself they all turned out lovely and Swarovski is really sparkly in real life (difficult to capture on camera).  They come on a 20" silver plated chain and in gorgeous velvet pouches, but if you would like the pendant without the chain just message me and I can reserve a special listing for you.

Thanks for stopping by
and have a lovely weekend ♥

♥ Love letter earrings and necklace ♥



Popping in to say "hello" and show you more of my jewellery.  I love hearts sooo much, if you are a regular follower you will already know that ... LOL
Little envelopes are platinum plated high mirror shiny effect (excellent quality) and I added a wire wrapped Swarovski crystal to the pendant.
I have made myself a pair of the earrings and love them, so will be making myself a matching necklace too ;)
They are both available to buy in my Folksy.

Thank you for stopping by, the weather is lovely ... but I struggle in the heat (",) 
Enjoy it while it lasts ♥

♥ Some of my jewellery creations ♥




A late post for me tonight (",)  I wanted to show you some jewellery creations I have been making and are in my Folksy shop.  I have been busy creating lots of jewellery and really enjoying it.
I made the little strawberry earrings today and added a genuine Swarovski droplets which I wire wrapped.
Cute affordable little gifts and I have upgraded to Folksy Plus, so that will be my main shop now.

I found a great supplier who supplies unique cute items for jewellery making, the birdcage is one and inside are loose crystals which "twinkle" when the light catches them, so kept one over for myself ... LOL ;)

Hope you are all well ♥

Hi there :)  ..... I'm still here blogging incase you are all wondering were I have been ... LOL ....
We have just moved to our new home :)  a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment, so we are busy unpacking and all my craft stuff is still in boxes, so it will take me a wee while to get all them unpacked and organised.

Just wanted to let you know, I am trying to build up my little Etsy and will be stocking these "cute!" bags :)

♥ Addicted to CAS ~ off the edge ♥






Hi there ... my card is quite 3d today, so I photographed it from this angle to try and capture it better.
Addicted to CAS challenge is "off the edge"  so i'm going to join in with the fun :)
The colours are bit different from my comfort zone, as I am trying to be good in using up the ever growing craft stash I have.  These fab stars are from Pink Paislee {I won a fab big prize from them a couple of years ago} and thought they teamed well with the star design paper from MME (which I won a couple of years ago from Judy} added some enameled dots "of course" .. ;)  The sentiment is from Waltzing mouse.

Hope you are having a lovely day
and to my American reader's a very Happy Mother's Day
