All Beaded Out!

Another busy beady day today. My first creation was using some lovely red agate pebbles - I made a necklace and found a lampwork bead that matched.

I'm always slightly scared of 'proper' artisan lampwork as I feel my beading can never do them justice. So I have used this one to try and overcome my fear! The focal bead was made by BeadySam who makes some lovely beads.

I had some red agate left, so I made a matching bracelet and some earrings !

Still on an earring theme, I then rustled up some Sea Blue/Green ones to match the multi-strand necklace from the other day:

I also started to make a few bits and bobs for the Mumsnet Easter Crafters Swap, but can't post any pictures or it will spoil the suprise for my swapper!

I then made a few basic phone charms using some silvery charms and added beads to some bookmarks (specifically for the craft fair at the end of Feb)

Finally and while I was on a roll, I used some yummy amethyst coloured foil squares to make this simple bracelet - which I rather fancy keeping just for me!
