Quiet January...

To recover from the festive season, I am spending a lot of time at home. This means i have plenty of time to make more jewellery. Here is what I have been working on this first week of the year...

I've discovered a new technique using copper wire. It allows me to create my own beads in a range of colour. They look great on a long necklace like this one, but i have idea for bracelet and earrings so watch this space.




I also wanted to use up the spare glass beads left from previous necklaces. I decided to combine them with black seed beads. I think it gives the necklace a more "wintery" kinda look compared to previous necklace. Looks its best worn over a nice jumper, sitting by a fireplace sipping a hot chocolate... :)
