gorgeous glass beads...

i couldn't resist these gorgeous beads when i saw them in a gift shop recently...aren't they yummy...and so i bought a handful to make my friend a Birthday bracelet...

i kept it really simple as she has a proper classy vintage look going on...and teamed the decorated beads with some plain glass ones i had in my stash...His Nibs helped me with the silver bits...**thankyou gorgous**...et voila!


of course, being the sort she is...all co~ordinated and everything...i figured i'd better make a pair of toning earrings to go with it...


and then of course you're not done...you still need a Birthday card, right? so...sticking to my scraps only rule for cards this year...i rooted around and found this yummy pp leftover...with just enough for me to cut and layer some of the flowers...i added a spot of glossy accents and some tiny gold beads to the flower centres...a little bit of ribbon...stamped and embossed a message and then cut the layers out using Nesties...

phew...Birthdays are hard work for the crafter, eh? ;0) the good news is...i think she like them!
