Oh dear, oh dear – So much for my New Year post. I had intended to share a few resolutions but I haven’t actually really made any this year – apart from really dull things like doing a better jobs of keeping accounts and suchlike. I’ve also got a hideous cold (I’m sat here in a really ridiculous outfit, cobbling together all manner of tatty but warming clothing, including some stupidly baggy leg-warmers and a short, tightly knotted neck scarf, which makes me feel kinda Old Man Steptoe), so I really don’t feel equal to committing to anything much. So, instead, I’ll just share a few new pieces of jewellery that I’ve recently added to the shop. First up, here’s a clutch of earrings. I love these big bone fang beads from the fabulous Yuki:
(enamel flowers – Nicola Matthews)
These are a bit crazy-daft but a bit of crazy-daft can’t hurt, I reckon.

Then there’s a couple of bracelets that featured in Beads and Beyond. The light here (as most places, I imagine) has been rubbish recently, as you’ll be able to see in these pics.
(ceramic bowl dropper – Scorched Earth, ceramic round – Happy Fallout)
(ceramic heart – Gaea)
More hearts here, fewer flowers…
(ceramic heart – Scorched Earth, word charm – Amanda Davie, polymer stitched beads – Something to do Beads)
Those stitched beads are some that I made. I’ve got a load of new beads to add to the bead shop but I think I feel too ill today to stand outside taking photographs. Maybe I’ll rally later and get them done…. Here’s another bracelet.
(ceramic connector – Slate Studios)
I don’t really like the term ‘tribal’ but sometimes it’s just serviceable. Here’s three kinda tribal necklaces.
(ceramic disc and wheel – Scorched Earth, air dry clay pendant – Like Beads)
(unglazed ceramic feather – Scorched Earth … patinated by me)
I’m rather fond of this wee bird necklace – it might end up being mine if it doesn’t sell this quarter! It’s got a really long extension chain so it can be worn at bust length and belly button length. Here’s more birds:

Finally, here’s a couple of pairs of earrings that I haven’t listed. Partly because I can’t decide whether to part with them…
That’s the lot for now. I’ll be back in a day or so with those new beads.
