Most of the beads I bought from my trip to Stourbridge are labelled and put away for future use but I did manage to make a necklace using one of them:
I used Lynn Davy's 'Nemesis' pattern and Lesley's gorgeous focal bead and added some teeny little lampies plus a larger one for a clasp from Tan Grey. I think they work really well together. :oD
Since then I have been busy planning for my Parents' 40th wedding anniversary which is next weekend. I have a cake to decorate - hopefully with a stunning red rose from Sabine Little. I've still got to figure out how I can safely attach it to the cake without risking breaking it. Wish me luck! There are also cupcakes to be made and, of course, a card. I'm in the middle of making a cuff bracelet for my Mum to wear and I may still change my mind about my jewellery too. Looks like it's gonna be a busy week!
Last weekend was a good one. On Sunday I went to a cbeading class with the wonderful Laura McCabe. Her site is temporarily closed just now while she is over here teaching but please make sure you check it out when it reopens next month. The class I went to was the Treasure Necklace and it was a great day! The necklace is made up of lots of beaded lockets that open up. Fabulous! I've not finished it yet but I will post some pics when I do. Watch this space. :o)
