Latest items

Had a lovely day today making jewellery and photographing jewellery and beads that I've been making. Here are a bracelet and earrings made with kalera lite beads in red scribble variety
More kalera lite beads but this time made with Perrier water recycled glass and Cava bottle recycled glass
I did a bit more work with PMC too, made these textured charms to dangle underneath Peacock nugget beads, they're curved a bit like the spacers I made for the Pandora beads a while back; that doesn't show on the photograph but I'm pleased with the patination of the texture (which fortunately does show up).
Finally for today's blog entry, here are a couple of bead styles that I've revisited.
The ones on the left were originally called marble beads, I made lots of them in white and clear glass and also opaque red and clear. They were one of the very first of my own lampwork beads that I made jewellery out of. I was quite limited in the number of colours of glass at my disposal in those days, I have much more now and I have lots of ideas for colour combos to make more! I'm renaming them ribbon beads now.

The pink bubble ones are a request from Sandy's friend Alison (she of the safari elephant hunting fame!) They are having a trip to Cambridge one Saturday in July along with a couple of other colleagues and Alison has asked if i can make her some earrings in pink.
