An evening in the cellar

We ventured into the cellar last night. 
Looks a bit bare - must get an updated picture.
I was a little worried it was going to be too cold to do much but it was not nearly as cold as I had anticipated. After being asked to make some jewellery for a friends girls for a wedding, (see Fit for a Princess), I had a bit of a tidy up and an attempted organisation of my side of the room. It is a little better and it has turned up all sorts of bits I am not quite sure what to do with. So I have started an attempt to use up the odds and ends and create some loveliness with what I have found.

 Maybe something for a little girls Christmas stocking
Dragonfly earrings
And something for Mum's stocking!
Freshwater pearl and haematite earrings 
 I love these charms and the beads just finish it off.
One of two pretty bookmarks
 I can't decide which I like more pink or green?
The second bookmark
 This was an experiment and I think I am pleased with it's outcome.
Star tree decoration - needs ribbon
Yellow and green for the less traditional tree. 
Another star - also needing ribbon
 This was the first one I made. Looking forward to seeing them on a tree now.
Yes still need to get the ribbon box out
 Finally this bracelet. The charm was very chunky and needed a heavy chain. I think anything smaller would have been too delicate. I was in two minds to bead the chain in red white and blue but I really liked it just plain and simple like this.
Union Jack charm bracelet
The final thing I made was actually a present for a friends birthday and was not about using up the bits I found as much.
Pretty heart wine charms.
I made lots of wine charms last year, they sold like hotcakes. They are very pretty and fairly easy to do.

What did you get up to this weekend?


  1. Love all your makes, especially the red/green Christmas star. Sue x

  2. Hey,
    Gorgeous makes! I'm visiting via LissyLou. I read that you moved to Germany. Are you in Germany now? Whereabouts are you? I'm a Brit living in Duesseldorf (we've been here for 9 years).....


I love to hear your comments and your experiences.
