More new jewellery

It’s market day again this weekend, so I’ve been busy making up more stock.  I hadn’t quite realised how busy, until I started taking all the photos.  They’re a bit dark, I’m afraid, but there’s plenty of them.  If there’s anything you fancy, just give me a shout.

Why must necklaces be so tricky to photograph?  These last earrings earrings aren’t actually going on the stall.  They’re already stuck in my ears.  Had to be done…

Small parcels of wonder…

Oh dear, I’ve been a bit remiss here.  I haven’t written a post for a couple of weeks.  I haven’t been idle.  I’ve been working with some new materials, on a new batch of beads.  It’s quite a time-consuming process, but a very fun one and I’m quite consumed with it.  But, more of this anon.  With no new makes to share, I thought I’d offer a little view of some of the new beady goods that have arrived from others in the last month or so.  It’s been a time of holding the purse strings quite tight, and a lot of my funds have gone on tools and bead-making materials.  So, post days have been fewer, but all the more treasured for it.  One of my new favourites is Happy Fallout.  Although, I’m really quite sickened that I didn’t come up with the text technique on these palimpsest beads.

Here’s a few more beauties:

happy fallout

I’ve been a fan of Jo Lucksted‘s ceramics for ages.  I’ve used her buttons in several pieces but she doesn’t usually offer beads for sale, so these had to be had.

Aren’t they marvellous?  I shouldn’t really look when Petra updates her shop but I find it hard not to – and harder still not to spot some needful thing.  These are just some of the latest additions to my Scorched Earth collection.

I just love that pale lavender colour.  And that’s why I had to bag this clasp, a combination of Rebecca Anderson‘s wirework and Bo Hulley‘s ceramics, from The Curious Bead Shop.il_570xN.442706415_sy8z

I have Rebecca to thank / blame for the next acquisitions.  I risked the customs trap to get these marvels (and a couple of clasps) from Amanda Davey.  And, yes, of course I got caught.  amanda davie

I’d had my eye on that tatty lace pendant for some time.  It’s going to get a simple treatment – and it’s staying with me.

I got another customs hit when I received a parcel from Tree Wing Studio, but I’ve wanted some of Rebekah’s aster beads for ages, so it was worth it.  I got them in three different colours, along with some other flowers.  She also, very kindly, popped in a free owl.treewingstudio

I’ll leave you with these beautiful glass oil drums from Helen Chalmers.  Expect to see them in earrings very soon!
