Finally the Siren call of the studio has lured me in to get to work! These are part of a new "range" I am making for a local boutique - a litle up-market store that sells lovely and mostly handcrafted items. I was hoping to be a bit further along by now but ah well!

This one is made from recycled silverware ( a tray ), sterling silver and the beads are yellow turqouise (eventhough it is more green than yellow!) and olive jade.

This one is also meade using a recycled tray but instead of using semi-precious stones I have collected up a bunch of brightly coloured glass, acrylic and wood beads. There are a couple of lampworked beads in there too! This one is full of Festive fun and looks so bubbly when it is on!

Cutting out square things is always a bit of a challenge for me - I am just not that good at "straight" - so there was a bit of filing to do on these! It was wonderful to be back at the bench though and I loved making these!

I really, really like those! The top ones look like sea grapes and the second one just looks like a lot of fun, like you said - makes me think of Melissa
