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.

I have a drawer

I have a drawer that has lots and lots of lovely beads that other bead makers have made over the past two years I have been buying them .. I bought them with the intention of making them into jewellery , this was before I started making my own beads. Well I never did get round to parting with alot of the beads because I fell in love time and time again with each and every one of them. 

However now I am take the bull by the horns and I am starting to make them up as why keep such stunning beads in a drawer. They should be worn and loved just like I love my beads.

Todays selection are made by Glittering Prize .. Trudi oh Trudi is her name.

And Breath

I have been in The Shed.... I have been in the shed .......... I have been in the shed .....

Started at 10.30 this morning and came out at around 4.30 this afternoon. Much better than last week when nothing would happen. At least I might have some spacer beads to put on Etsy . And I have been playing with Fire Lotus. So fingers crossed as I will only show if they turn out .

Finally something to show

I still cannot get onto the shed . Guilt about going into the shed , guilt when I do not go into the shed. I NEED to get in there...........

So here's some pieces I made up instead. 

And finally One Silly Moo is here to hunt me forever , I love the simple yet stylish cards , yet I am remembered as One Silly Moo . Good or bad I will be noticed.

Pants Pants Pants

Having the whole day to myself should have inspired me in the beading department .. I say the word SHOULD have . Well no such luck . In fact I have that much stuff swimming in my head at the moment that not even the basic doughnut bead could be performed today. It just would not go . So I am frustrated left , right and centre and even that is frustrating me ......

I have glass , glass , glass . I have a tidy and very organized studio but could I make a single decent bead . Nope all Pants all for the frugal jar.

I wonder if it had anything to do with the couple of brandy and cokes I had last night or the fact I had the whole day to myself ????

Are you thinking of Autumn colours yet ?

I know , I know , we are still in Summer but that does not stop me thinking of Autumn colours already ..... What I am wondering though is .. Are YOU ?

I find myself thinking of colour combos all the time thinking ohhh that would go well or dare I even say it ... NOOOOOOOO I hear you say but yep that word , The big C word when everybody goes mad for 24 hrs . That would nice for C.........S.... or even as a C pressie in fact oh no ..

Thinking of that I am glad in a way I have a son because I would always be making things for my child if it had been a girl .

Anyway after that random thought I will let you enjoy your evening xx

I forgot to mention we did a day out at Tatton RHS Flower Show

It was a pressie for the hubby for his 40th ...Yes he wanted to go , we had not been for years so I took the hint and got some tickets.

This is one of the many reasons why I do not miss living in Shetland. For starters it did not cost the earth just to get off the island. We have the choice to go to an event if we want ... And boy did we.

A hat that actually suits .. Did I buy .... Nope silly girl I did not.

A full day out really enjoyed spending the day with the old fossil , just him and me all day. It was nice doing something for the adults . Super organised event and gets better and better I expect every year ...
