Finishing touches

I wanted a statement necklace to finish off my new outfit but couldn’t quite find what I needed. Cue plain necklace, ribbon collection and 15 mins! I’m really quite pleased with the final result, tempted to pick up another blank necklace and make a brighter one next. I think these could be great for the summer, will have to look for a cheaper necklace base.

New Ideas

Red and White Bead and WireGrey Marble Bead and Wire

Thought I’d have a fresh start for 2013 with some brand new design ideas and what better way to start than a birthday gift for my sister. I wanted to create designs that used the large amount of coloured wire that I have collected and i’m really pretty pleased with the results, I nearly kept the red/white ones for myself. The next step is to recreate these designs using lots different colour combinations and with a few more birthdays and a couple of leaving gifts to make in the next few weeks I’ll get plenty of practise!!
