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
