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
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?
