Here are some of the lovely new arrivals at the shop, we have a mix of foiled- gemstone- lampwork- matt- frosted & Swarovski plus some new findings.
It's been hard keeping up with my lovely beaders, but I think we're just about back to full stocks after they raided the shop :) The pics are nice but as every beader knows they are better in the flesh!

Swarovski Floral Tiara

Sorry for the bad pics but it really hard to get the detail in this little beauty to turn out :( This is for a lovely Bride to be who wasn't sure what she wanted so I said I'd have a play. You wouldn't think it but it is extremely heavy!! there is approx 86 in each large leaf and about 36 in each small leaf and with 5 in each section that is a lot of crystal. It does look so much better in the flesh, I love it that much I wish it was me getting to wear it down the isle LOL

Jewellery Makes

Well cards a a bit thin on the ground of late as I've been trying to keep up with the mad beaders that are my wonderful customers, they have had a few craft fairs on the go and have went though a huge heap of beady bits, I just love that other peeps are into jewellery making & more importantly beads!!!!
Above is one of the last bracelets I made they are sooooo popular at the mo my wee fingers are sore making them LOL They are a mix of glass pearls, Swarovski Crystals and nice shiny starfish charms.
I have some really nice hair combs to share with you and a stunning( I don't mind saying so myself) Swarovski Crystal Tiara, but thats only if I can get the pictures uploaded without any probs!!!

Some Craft Fair Pics

The amazingly talented Angie giving some instruction, she has agreed to run some classes in the shop which I am megga excited about :)

I thought I'd share with you some pics from our big fundraising craft weekend back in in July, goodness that seems ages ago now! Anyway we where raising funds for the RNLI, Poppy Scotland and local charities. The weather wasn't on our side much but the weekend was a great success, there was a fantastic mix of talented crafters who all got on great & said the atmosphere was fantastic. They all seemed to do well sales wise which is great, always a worry when you attend a fair but I stressed even more that they did well.
I was just going to make it a one off but they have all been in the shop asking for me to do it again next year so I'll have to think about it and see how I feel.

Wooohoooo Some Cards to show!

Just a couple of cards to show, I am cheating really cause I made them last week but I'm such in the middle of a mountain of beads trying to get my jewellery stock back up as the shop has been megga busy!!
Anyhoo the Anniversary card was for my Mum & Dad as they celebrated 32 years, congrats!! and the Gorjuss card was for a customer who need a card for her niece going up to high school, it felt a bit weird colouring the hair as I normally go for black LOL

Back at work!

Back from our summer hols and back at work!! Things have been really busy so I haven't had a chance to update my blog sorry, the Copic's have been going down a treat, so much so I've had to place another order!!! They are fantastic and once peeps see the results they are sold, I managed to add to my collection even though the customers got to a few of them before me LOL I made the cards above with my new collection and I'm really chuffed, I've even change my flesh colour. I am working hard on the website to get them on but I think it will take a few more days, but you can email me if you would like to take up the £1.85 offer :)
I've loads more to show you but for now happy crafting!
