Hello Peoples - I hope you are having a good week. I've finished work today for just over a week, but I'm not sure whether I'm looking forward to the time off or not - I can't bear it when the children in the neighbourhood start falling out with one another, and telling tales on each other (which has apparently been happening today!). Think I'm gonna have to plan a few days out somewhere, just hope the weather is kind and we don't have to spend money going places!
Anyway, this evening, I thought I would show you a jewellery set I've made for myself - a bracelet and earrings set. I love wearing bracelets - I don't often wear necklaces and don't change my earrings very often though I do love wearing dangly earrings. Mostly I just keep my gold studs in.
This is made with an amethyst chunk, sage amethyst beads and white agate beads, with a small sterling silver clasp. I really love wearing this bracelet.
The next image is a bit blurred but I'm trying to show the weaving technique I've used.
And these are the earrings - I need to practice making wrapped loops! Although I love these, they are a bit heavy to wear for any length of time.
I managed to wear them for the evening when I went out last Friday. And I did have a lovely evening. My name was chosen out of the hat to have my make-up done by the make-up artist, who was someone who does the make-up for Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Dancing on Ice (all of which are programmes on ITV here in the UK - and none of which I watch ;D). Anyway, I was really pleased with what she did - it was just a natural daytime look - perfect for someone who doesn't often wear make-up - it was just a shame I had to come home and remove it before going to bed LOL! And Richard didn't even comment (that's men for you I suppose!)
So, I'll love you and leave you for now. Hope to be back again soon.
Love, Andrea xx
