Away to the hills!

Evening all! I hope you've all had a good week? Not much to report on the beady front at the moment unfortunately, as I've been rather busy, but I'm hoping it won't be long. In the meantime, here's a little bead I've been intending to make for ages, and finally got round to the other day. I hope you like him - meet Percival Panda.

He has a slightly wonky bottom unfortunately, and I still have to work on the positioning of his black and white bits, so he's gone to live on my bracelet. :-)

I hope you've got some good plans for this Bank Holiday weekend? It will probably involve wellies and a brolly if you're going out, but whatever you do, I hope you enjoy it! I'm off to a friend's place for a few days, so I will answer any emails when I get back next week.

Have fun, and don't dance around too many May poles...makes ya kinda dizzy. ;-)

I've been a whittlin'!

Morning all! I hope you had a good Easter Bank Holiday, and haven't overdone the chocolate...if that's possible? Mmmm Green and Blacks, it was a tough day. LOL! ;-) And on a chocolatey note, I don't know if any of you watched Willie Harcourt-Cooze's program about his wonky chocolate factory, but I so want to try some! Anyone out there sampled it yet?

Anyway - just a few little teasers for all my lovely blog readers, to let you know I've been at my torch and kiln again and have made some new goodies. There are lots of new silver cores, dread beads, and a few lampwork beads (including a rather overdue easter set, oops), and even some new jewellery too. There's the large blue disc silver core pendant (pictured above) that I've rather fallen in love with. It has a handmade silver bail that lets the bead hang flat on a chain, whilst allowing it to spin round freely. Oh and some little silver cupcake earring studs too for all you cupcake fans out there.

Righty-ho, I should be updating my site at some point over the next day or 2, depending on how long all the pesky web work takes. And as usual, I will send out an email to let all you folks on my mailing list know when I've updated.

Have a great tuesday!
