26 Days Till Christmas!

Well, the days are racing past so quickly that Christmas will be here before you know it. Must get cards out to my overseas friends and relatives or they'll turn into New Years cards!

Have added a couple of new items to my shops, the previously shown Green Amethyst bracelet:

and a Purple Amethyst and Lampwork pair of earrings.

Hopefully I'll have a successful Christmas season!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Well the Christmas season is almost upon us which means I'm very busy trying to get new jewellery items completed.

I've finally used the Green Amethyst that I purchased ages ago. I absolutely love the colour of this stone. It reminds me of the colour of the Indian ocean off the coast of Kenya. When I was on holiday there I tried and tried to capture the true colour of the ocean in a photograph without any success. Green Amethyst (also known as
prasiolite) matches it perfectly. Will be making some items of jewellery with this stone for myself, just to remind me of the lovely, restful time I had in my cottage by the beach.

Inspiration Strikes By Unexpected Source

Had a message from Twitter today telling me that I had a new follower. Couldn't believe who it was, the Doobie Brothers! Wow!

Have always loved their song "Black Water" and was inspired to create a bracelet with that name.

Uploaded a photo onto Facebook of the finished bracelet, hadn't uploaded to my Etsy or Artfire shops yet and it's already been sold to one of my friends!

Thanks Doobie Brothers!!
