A little colour to brighten your day...

 I recently bought some Czech glass pear briolettes to play with.  The benefits of them being made of glass is that you can have a bigger bead, for a lower price and still offer good quality jewellery, as I still use sterling silver wire and findings.  This means that earrings are sensitive ear friendly =) 

 I'll be buying more of these beads in the future to offer a wider selection of colours.  As this was my first time buying from this seller I'm happy to say that they offer a great service.  Its really important to me to have reliable sellers to buy my materials from!

I love having a variety of colours to choose from, so its a good thing that I can make jewellery to match my jewellery needs =)

 Last night the Etsy team Craft Britannia had its first monthly treasure-thon, where everyone tried to make as many lovely treasuries as they could featuring at least 6 team members.  

In total I believe 121 treasuries where made and it was a great way to get to see everyone's work!

It was lovely to see some of my jewellery in some of the treasuries and I enjoyed reading peoples comments on the treasuries I made.  So I'm looking forward to taking part in the next months treasure-thon.  If you'd like to have a look at all the treasuries click here =)

Good morning, but wait where's the sun gone?

 It was just here honestly!  Well lets hope it shows up again.  I guess I may sound a little sunshine obsessed but it does help to take better pictures of my lovelies =)
 Speaking of lovelies I've got a few new items in my shop and have more to list.  

Its the end of the school year and my daughter is going to Italy with her school choir and things on the school front are quiet busy, the Kids go to 4 different schools/colleges between them.  I've had some paper work to deal with and I ordered some new boxes for my jewellery.

I also received a custom order I made, for some Vintage Kimono Silk gift pouches to put some of my more expensive jewellery in.  They are gorgeous =) I'll have to take a pic of them soon!

Well that's all for now, have a lovely Sunday!
