I have some new gemstones I have been using and just love them!! I kinda missed them and am enjoying using them in various necklaces and stretchy bracelets once again!! I have even been making rings, I make rings very rarely but I have got inspired and am really loving giving it a try.
They aren't quite ready yet but when I have one finished I WILL show you!! Promise!!!
I have also had a little dabble at using weaving techniques using tigertail or beading wire!!
Porcelain Weave Necklace
This one has Porcelain Jasper and Black Onyx in a 3 bead weave, then I finish it with various different shapes of jasper.
I did purchase rather a large selection of the Porcelain Jasper so this was another necklace made using different chains.
Draped in Porcelain
I will list it on my website very soon.
I do intend to start using gemstones and my own beads together in my jewellery so they will be making an appearance together soon.
I have also had a little go at wire weaving techniques from my new books, will show them soon too.
Now then my main dilemma at present is my backdrop for my photos.
I need some new ideas of what to do, what to use and do I give it a sort of theme really!!
I am so rubbish at coming up with themes for that type of thing. I want something that will show off my jewellery and beads to the best effect but also give it some sort of elegant/sophicated look but also interesting and not bland like they are now!!
I need new props I think?? My slate is great for certain colours and I like their rustic feel but for darker colours its no good, what to use??
I have tried open books with the piece in the middle on the writing I was quite pleased with those but I do need some other ideas.
If you have any ideas please help!!!
Off now, see you again soon.
