Some More Jewellery

Hello and Happy Thursday to you all.

Eleri's been to her friend's birthday party this afternoon and had a lovely time. It was such lovely weather here this morning and then, as soon as I took Eleri to the party at 3pm, we had a nasty rain shower - such a pity as there was a big bouncy slide in the garden for the party. Thankfully, the rain did not last too long and the sun did come out again.

Anyway, I made another stretchy bracelet for the present - using jade and quartz gems. I do worry when I make something as a present that it will fall apart - I really hope that doesn't happen - I've used a double strand of elastic for the bracelet so it shouldn't snap, but you never really know do you! I didn't want to make exactly the same bracelet as I did earlier in the week (see picture in this post, so this time I added three quartz beads in a cluster in the centre.

The earrings weren't part of the present (I'm not sure if she has pierced ears) - I made those earrings for myself - and I love them!

Maybe this is a better photo of the earrings - sorry about the quality of my photos today!

There is a challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week for dimension and texture. I'm not sure if I can enter jewellery, but I'll give it a go - please delete me if my entry can't be included.

I've got a card to make for a male colleague who's leaving next week - and I'm struggling with ideas for that one - so don't know whether I'll get that done tonight or not.

Hope to see you soon.

Love, Andrea xx

Hi Andrea,

This is sooooo pretty! And what pretty pillow case with it.

Am sure you'll manage something for the male card... any male image with male colours around it. You make fantastic cards, anyway.

Have a nice weekend!
