A couple of new bracelets...I really should stop only making bracelets! They just come so naturally to me - perhaps I'm just too lazy to go the whole hog and turn it into a necklace?! I think that my own personal challenge shall be to make sure the next picture I post up here is a necklace! You read it here - you can hold me to it!!
I love, love, love the combination of gemstones I've used here! Thanks Precious Sparkle Beads! I have used lots of Golden Rutile Quartz rondelles, Pyrite briolettes and Chrysoprase drop briolettes. Really simple design but I love how pretty the beads look just clustered together.
I am a big fan of Swarovski Margaritas - especially in Heliotrope, such a gorgeous set of colours in there! I think sometimes a lot of Swarovski can look a little OTT (I've definitely been guilty of this on occasion but then, sometimes only a lot of bling will do!) but I really like the combination here of crystal, turquoise rondelles and Vintaj brass chain - the materials seem to balance each other out.
So that's what I've achieved this week whilst being home, poorly on the coach with my duvet! I'm still sounding totally grotsville but feeling better in myself, just very frustrated (I've missed a whole week of my college course) with my gruff voice and rattly, wheezy chest! I hope you are escaping the lurgi and are all having a great weekend.
