You have to make whatever I draw....Earring Special!

This week, as well as planning the ingredients for my lovely bead soup partner, I have been challenged to make some earrings by my little girl. We have an earring special for you today!
Here's the first pair, I have been informed that these were designed to be party earrings...

And the second pair have been designed specially for me to wear to the office!

So there we have it, earrings for all occasions. I'm thinking of wearing my party earrings tomorrow night!

I hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoy designing and creating them.

Thrift Store Blog Hop

I've signed up for a thrift store blog hop being hosted by Pookledo which you can read about on her blog here.

This blog hop appeals to my love of thrift/charity shops. We had to buy something for £1.00 which could be used to make a piece of jewellery.
Here's what I bought, I think it used to be attached to something else but it will be fun to use, so many possibilities! Not sure if it is silver because it is not stamped but it's more shiny after I've been cleaning it with my silver polishing cloth.

Be sure to check back for an "in progress" photo and then the full reveal and hop on the 4th of August.

Bead Soup Blog Party Six

I'm so excited about this bead soup blog party! This is the biggest one yet with 399 participants from all over the world spread across three separate reveal dates.

I'm going to the party on 28th July and my partner is the lovely, talented Dana from Tumblestone Handmakery, what a fabulous name!

Dana specialises in quirky and I love her jewellery designs. Here is a necklace she made recently, the mother of pearl button is gorgeous.

Please drop by Dana's blog and visit her Facebook page and Pinterest.
