trying again...and a bit of jewellery...


still very much a novice jewellery maker...i've been experimenting with creating a floating necklace this week...i love glass beads and chunky ones at that...and i'm a big fan of long necklaces {mainly because i've got such a big, fat neck!!} both of these things mean that a necklace can get pretty heavy, but by using crimp beads to separate the beads and float them along the tiger tail wire...i can have the look i want, with the beads i want...without weighing myself down! Rah! ;)



if anyone has any tips on photographing long thin jewellery...i'd be super grateful if you'd share them!!





i'm loving playing with beads and wire atm...and i'm working on a chain maille charm bracelet which i hope to share later in the week...so if you like that kind of thing too...watch this space...







and finally...here is a photo of my journal page from Thursday...see how much more subtle and vibrant it is than the scanned image? :0)

With all that floating bead malarky ... You certainly don't sound like a novice ... LOVE the flowery page!

I Like that! Green is my fav colour :) Could you drape it over a large vase to photograph?
