Another bangle! My daughter's been here for the weekend, and Impressionist left with her. I'm highly honoured - she's very picky about her jewellery. It did look gorgeous on her.

It's official! I'm the world's slowest jewellery maker! First I have to think about making something, then I have to work up the courage to order all the bits ( what if it doesn't work, and I've wasted all that money??) then I have to make a mock-up in cheap materials just to check, then work up the courage to cut and bend the expensive wires ( what if I make a mistake and waste....etc etc) and then I have to think about it a bit more. Then sometimes I actually make something!!

I find it really difficult not to have an even number of things, or a repeating pattern - so this is a bit of a change for me.It's a simple JPL bracelet with little silver nuggets and a silvered glass focal.

Every now and then, I think about all the beads I've made, and what they grew up to be! I loved these beads when I made them, and I really love what Jo did with them. And I kind of miss them now they're gone!

Monet's Garden

I seem to be having Monet on the brain lately - this little set of beads developed when I was looking for something else! I really like the way they've turned out, and I think the idea will work in other colours too, so plenty to think about and experiment with.
Nothing else is happening in cloudy Wales - although there are a million forget-me-nots in the garden, looking Spring-like.
