Dark...


Ooooh it's dark these days!! I have been trying to take some good photo's of the new [new] jewellery for the last couple of days and I have to say I am not having much luck!!....just the one piece has worked out so far. The piece above...another big necklace with lovely rose quartz pillow beads and pearls with an oxidised silver leaf motif has now been added to the shop....and hopefully, by tomorrow, the three bracelets I have made will follow it!! {one grey pearl bracelet with leaf charm, one chain bracelet with white pearl cluster and one oxidised chain bracelet with pink pearls...}....keep your fingers crossed for good light for me!! ;))

As some of you may have already spotted, yesterday I was featured by the lovely Shari on her hand-made for the holidays interviews.....check it out here!! I was so excited and honoured to be interviewed for this series, {it's my first ever full length interview!!} especially as I am in the company of so many amazing ladies whose work I wholly admire!...Thank you Shari for making the time to conduct these interviews {which are such a great read!} and for including me in the troop....:)

I am finding myself hurtling toward Christmas at such a pace it's scary...I am almost afraid to look at the calendar each day! I still have to make the cake {!!}...do *all* my shopping/making {for those friends and family whom I can fobb off with some jewellery as gifts! ;))}..finish all my orders, ship all sales, tidy house for xmas guests...fit in a trip {fun, fun, fun and am soooo excited!} to London in 2 weeks!, see some friends...get some sleep, do some tax returns and books!! yikes. What is on your lists???

I have been introduced to a few great new [to me] blogs in the last few days.....Bend to Squares and elly [ via lena] and re-discovered {with renewed awe} the beautiful work at myriad.....makes me happy to stumble on such lovely little finds each day.

Hope your week is off to a good start!!...see you tomorrow, light permitting ;)

I saw this tutorial today and wondered if it was you! All of the jewelry looks so lovely, especially the rose quartz (one of my faves.) I'll definitely be pointing my friends in the direction of your shop (or their husbands, as the case may be).

Hey, you did the tutorial! It's great! I've been making stuff in silver but really want to get hold of some acrylic now...
