First post of 2013

So, we're over a week in and here is my first post. I don't quite know where the last week and a half went, but somewhere. I'm still here! Slowly coming out of the viral coma that has plagued me over the past 3 months (I hope. Still coughing my guts up several times a day but I'm getting there!). I'm definitely still feeling a little sluggish though! And I have found myself sitting in front of the beads, not managing to do very much, on several occasions over the past week - and it's not that I don't have a to-do list - I really do! - but somehow, my body - and my head - is telling me to rest. Just for a bit - to take it easy for a couple days more.

I have created a few new pieces though! And I am hoping that tomorrow will be a major photography day. Jewellery, magazine shots and a secret tutorial I am working on - they all need snapping. But until then, I have a few Instagram shots to share, before these are all grown up and in my etsy shop. Having fun with colour, as you can see!

As you can probably also see, I am also having fun with Golem beads. They had a very excellent sale just before Christmas, and I placed my first (very big!) order with them. Their European shop was very well stocked and I went a little bit crazy! Pleased I did though. I am sooo into the beads they sent me.....they are unlike any ceramic beads I have bought before. Totally unique. And I love them, needless to say! I don't think it will be my last order.....

Hope you've all had a good January so far. I will be stopping by sooner rather than later! Can't let this wee blog of mine get too dusty.

I've already said I love the new bracelets. I really like what you've done with the czech glass and seed beads on the purple one. I rather fancy some Golem beads for myself.

Can't work out how to comment with my blog ID! Typical. I've made a right rod for my back with Wordpress! Claire L

Glad you are on the mend! I do love your work. The purple bracelet is my fav. Happy 2013.

I'm pleased to finally view more of your wonderful jewellery and photo inspiration, Rebecca. You have had a rough start health-wise for 2013, but it may have been a mixed blessing: perhaps you really needed a little downtime? Ha Ha, hardly likely in your busy home! I sincerely hope it will be clear sailing from here on.

I have long admired the work of Golem Design Studio, but I am resisting as long as I can... their beads long simply addictive!

Those are all so lovely --and I just went to the Golem site and some of those beads are definitely going on my wish list!

Oh my goodness - so sorry to hear that you have been so poorly - if I had known I wouldn't have 'ordered' the fantastic house pendant until your were feeling better. It just beautiful - so too the beads.

These bracelets are gloreious and I think my favourites are the one with the purple house and the blues - perfect for winter wear.

Get well soon my treasure

The Golem beads look great with your style and those earrings with the polka dot beads and the Golem made me just grin, they are so happy!

And, I'm happy to know you are getting to feeling better too.

I'm glad you were able to make a few pieces. They're all wonderful, and I do like all that color.

I hope you are feeling better in no time!!!!

Some fabulous beads there. I particularly like the purple bracelet with the house, and the blue/purple/turquoise bracelet. And today I'm thoroughly enjoying wearing a teal/pink Songbead bracelet!
