My current thing is to try to make at least one item of jewellery every day, because I have a few Autumn/Winter/Christmas jewellery fairs/parties coming up and I need lots to sell!
I'm very jealous of my family at the moment for being home on their holidays whilst I'm stuck at work all day. Luckily for me though - I haven't cooked a single thing since the summer holidays began.

Dare I say it, but I made these upcycled Christmas decorations yesterday, using the heart charms from an old broken bracelet. Actually, they would probably be alright as handbag charms. I am trying to build up a bit of stock in preparation for the pamper evening and jewellery party that I have planned for nearer Christmas.
This beads for this bracelet have been a nightmare to source: firstly, I bought a pack of small white alphabet letters which had only one A in the entire pack; next I went to buy a second pack only to find that the shop didn't stock them anymore; finally, I went to another bead shop and bought the sparkly beads (above) singly. I'm still not a hundred per cent happy with them as I would have preferred to keep to the green and blue theme.

I recently bought a kit from the Crazy Wire Company because I loved the look of the twizzle wire included. It comes in a variety of colours but I chose the silver bracelet kit (as above). The memory wire and all the beads were included, and unlike with some things you buy, there are plenty of supplies to make the bracelet and more.

Cute white flowers and pink/coral cubes (some of them are very dolly mixture) on memory wire.
