Happy Day

Had a lovely day making some new jewellery for my online shops. You can have a sneak peak at the new items before they hit the shops.

Silver earrings featuring a lovely cornflower blue rose. These were fun to make and I love that shade of blue - very cheery.

Copper earrings with a cute red glass bead.

Copper earrings with purple glass bead. Very pretty!!

Brass earrings with clear glass bead dangles. I had a good time going through my beads looking for the clear beads. I found beads I hadn't seen for ages.

I think these are my favourites. So pretty with the silver flower and I love the faceted clear glass beads.

A very classic look with a beautiful soft pink glass pearl and a little pink glass bead.

I found these beads in a necklace at the Port Adelaide Market. I think they are quite old, but I don't know for sure how old.

A very feminine necklace with cameos and pink pearls.

I will be posting these items over the next week or so. Please drop in to my online shops for more details of this jewellery.

I am taking a break from markets while I try to find another one that is more suitable. I am a bit disappointed that the Petrie Market wasn't quite right for me because I really enjoyed going. On the bright side this means I will have more time to devote to my online stores and I will be adding my surplus stock over the next few weeks, so keep checking for new items.

I will be checking out the Handmade Expo in Ipswich, the Artarageous Market and the Boutique Market at Portside. They look very interesting markets and I am going to have a lot fun finding a market for me.

This Week

I had a good week with a trip to Montville with a few girlfriends (Courtney, Sam and Jane), it was lovely to wander around the shops and have great lunch in such a beautiful setting.

I have starting making some new jewellery using pretty pictures and glass tiles to create a pendant. It is taking all my patience to not touch them while the glue is drying but I happy with the results - I just have to resist touching them!!!

I will be at the Petrie Market on Sunday. It should be a good day as there is 1940's festival on too. Let's hope the weather is fine.

Catch up with you soon.
