Gone Green Again

Hmmm. Colour schemes seem to stay with me. Got over the blues now it's time for green.
Check this set out though. So elegant and feminine. Made from glass pearls so could be mistaken for the real thing but wouldn't affect the purse too much. This set can be found in my Etsy store, click on the picture for details.
Watch this space for my next colour LOL.

OK Blues Over, What About Green?

My FMG order arrived and I must have spent a day fondling the beads. What I did buy I haven't used before and thats Celestial Crystals.
But I still had to add a Swarovski crystal to the earrings.
Mmmm I like!!!

Don't know why but I went for peridot, olive and frosted green. Putting the peridot with antiqued brass findings really gives that vintage feel. Check them out. Cool eh?
These items should be for sale in my store shortly.

I've Got The Blues!

Have you ever purchased something and want more but haven't got a clue who you got from. Well that's me.

I just fell in with the large swirly blue beads in these creations. I remember getting them from Sydney Bead Show 2007 last year but who the supplier was I cannot for the life of me remember. i just attended the show and spent and spent and spent, coming home with a bag full of goodies.

I suppose it's good in a way then I cannot repeat my designs. Also the fact that no one else will like them LOL.

Lesson learned - I MUST DO A SUPPLIER LIST!
