Welcome to my wonderful world of handmade lampwork beads and handcrafted jewellery .

I enjoy making handmade beads that are not mass produced and have that original feel and look. As my beads are not mass produced not every bead is the same and can vary ever so slightly . This is why I feel excitement each time I melt glass as each time is like the first time. Any imperfections are stated in my descriptions so buyer please be aware .

Enjoy looking at my beads.
It is our imagination that lets us create these wonderful designs.

Summer Days Drifting Away oohhh awhhhh !!!

Summer Days Necklace :

Does the title sound familiar , for those who don't know ( Grease ) . Summer Loving and all that. God I loved that film , I was 3 when it came out and so my mother said all I did was sing those Grease songs. My voice still has not improved.

So I put this focal (Glittering Prize ) on ribbon . I am not to sure so I am gonna be the Ginny pig and try it out, so far for all the 5 Min's I was wearing it, it was very very comfy. I think it will be even more comfy on the neck in the summer with a nice vest top , bangles , wedges & yes you have guessed it the old jeans. what would we do without our jeans, our lifeline to comfort whilst classy.So whilst the weather is still poor & shitty. I got this focal and it has cheered me up so much if I enjoy wearing it I'm gonna keep it. It has made me smile .

Question to all of you who read my bloggy. :

When you make your designs do you have a person , an outfit an occasion in mind. Do you find by the end of making up your piece you tend to want to keep it for yourself ? Or are you one of those who can just put together a piece without even thinking about it . Viola !!!! Its done and looks perfect. Or spend hours thinking, choosing , trying different things then getting frustrated when a number of things work and then you cannot decide what to go with .
What type are you !!!!


  1. A walla walla walla uh ... tell me more!!!

    I'm right there with you Stacey - I just loved that film. I can imagine one of the pink lady's wearing it!!! And I think you should keep it!


  2. I was never the Sandra Dee always the Pink Lady. It does look really nice and simple on the ribbon> I love it Trudi Thank you

  3. Sorry if you get embarrassed but you use to do the dances too!

    It is a lovely piece and wearing ribbon is sexier than a chain.

    At Steve's this weekend and it is freezeing in this house! No not as cold as you are I agree but coming from my place where I wear T.Shirts because the building has to be warm for the old folk (bless em!)then here it's vest and socks inside the thick wool tights, not a pretty sight not worn a vest since a child.
    I hope it warms up sooner for you than us but bring on the sun all round!

    Have you thought of writing a blog-book?

    You have a way with words which comes across very entertaining,funny,heart felt,puts the reader where you are !!

    Sorry to embarrass you again...Take Care

    Mum x

  4. No never though of a blog book , what is it ? I shall have to have a look.

    I cannot believe I used to dance as well, Thanks Mum for that info. Of course I burst out embarrassed laughing to know I danced as well . Gee I am no Pussy Cat Doll. or Girls Aloud as The Husband would likey like.

  5. There's nothing like your family to remind you of things you'd rather forget! I'm just glad that my family haven't figured out blogs!!!Phew!

  6. I know , it will get worse I expect

  7. By the way - I didn't answer your question. Inspriation comes from all places - sometimes a colour combination - an outfit (especially ones from places like Strictly Come Dancing) - sometimes one of my outfits ............ all sorts of places!
