Spangly Dangly!


Hellooo from me and Milo the silver core Dog!

Yep, I'm still here, I didn't realise it had been that long since I'd blogged again. Oops!...sorry. ;-) And yes the holiday photos are still on the camera, but I've been trying to get a bit of melting done every chance I've had so I can restock my site. I'm getting there, and will be uploading the pages as soon as I can over the next few days - illustration work permitting. But here in the meantime are a few photos to keep you going. Hope you like them.


I've been wanting to make bracelet dangle charms from way before I started silver coring, but never quite got round to it. The silver bails I've used have got 5mm+ holes, so should hopefully fit all of the major bracelet systems, not just the Trollbead ones. There are going to be plenty of bug ones from me, surprise surprise, and I'm rather taken with the first one too, the Jelly Bean dangle. This was born out of a cheesy poof bead I made a while back...yes I know...trust me to make a cheesy poof bead! LOL! But I thought it looked really cute and bean-like before I added the enamel cheesy coating, and so the idea was born. I've just 'bean' (*groan*) looking for a way to use them. I'd love a bracelet with loads of different coloured ones on. Mmmmm. :-)

There will also be some new lampwork beads and jewellery too, and I'm still working on the dread beads and fused glass sections which are seriously in need of an update. If anyone finds out where those extra hours in the day have been hidden, could they let me know? ;-)

Have a good week peeps, and don't forget to join my mailing list if you want to be told the instant I update my site. Tara for now!

Hehehe! It was a toss up what it got called Steph but the jelly bean won cos I thought he was a little long for a haricot. LOL! ;-)
