Tree Wings Studio - Art Jewelry Elements Reveal

I was lucky enough to be chosen this month to take part in the Art Jewelry Elements CoM Challenge.  I decided to throw my hat in the ring because just *look* what was on offer from the wonderfully talented Tree Wings Studio for us to work with (if we were lucky enough to be chosen, which I was :-)) - 

Aren't these just gorgeous? Look at all that texture. I chose a grey driftwood heart and it swam across the sea to me very quickly, all the way from Virginia, USA to Edinburgh, Scotland.

I thought straight away that it was the perfect bracelet bead, and so that's what it became :-) A lot of stitching later...

 Look at this extra dose of cuteness that Rebekah added! Words are always something I like to add in to my designs if they feel right. 

I decided to add one of my new handwoven heart beads. I wish I had a nice matte, non-metallic grey seed bead (anyone know of one?)  as I feel that the blue heart would have been even lovelier in a soft grey to match Rebekah's heart, but there you go. Aqua had to do!

I also selected a gorgeous pewter Tree of Life button from Green Girl Studios to fit in with the wooden heart.  

This bracelet is available in my etsy shop now

Thank you Rebekah and AJE! I can't wait to see what everyone else made. Check out their links here:

Guys, I will not be offering this big a discount again. I usually have a big birthday sale in my jewellery shop on my birthday, but due to difficult family circumstances, Songbead is looking on the bare side right now. I'm planning on holding a special post-birthday one day event there at some point in the future. 

This is just a little thank you from me to you for all your support over the past 2.5 years, and please know that you will be helping me and my little family with some expensive and ongoing vet bills, and for that, I TRULY LOVE YOU!

 THANK YOU!!! x x x

I'm chilling out today with this amazing wee man, before going out for a birthday tea tonight. If *only* I actually could put tiny wee hats on my bunnies! Raise a glass for me tonight :-)

Finally, some new work...

I know, I know - there's an awful lot of tumbleweed round here. Life's been tough and I just don't feel I always want to write about the difficult things that go on behind the scenes! But this weekend, I managed to whip up a few pieces, and this morning they (and a couple of others from a few weeks back) met up with my iPad and Instagram. It feels good to have something to post here. And, if you're reading this, thanks for sticking with me through the radio silence! I know it's easy to stop reading blogs when the authors seemingly drop off the edge of the world. I'm still here, just struggling a little. We will get there though.
