For those who have read my blog for some time you will remember this post from last August.
Yes it's that time for us and we will be going on holiday on Monday..yipee!
As always I like to make some new jewellery and this year these pieces are coming with me.
I bought some lovely seashore themed beads from a very talented American lampworker and put them together with some long silver ear wires and blue Swarovski beads.
Here is a view showing the ear wires, I rather like these, they are different to the usual ones I use.
I also bought from the same lady some lovely etched beads, these really look like sea glass. I have made earrings and put the focal bead simply on a bead post to wear on a chain.
I used the same long ear wires for these.
This is the set all together.
They are a lovely peach colour and look good with summer outfits and sunshine!
And lastly being a very greedy girl I also decided I wanted some purple earrings. So still keeping with the beach theme I had these made
Which I made into....
.......these pretties. This time I used heart ear levers for the fittings. Again they are new for me and I felt they finish them off really well.
So there we are, I have my holiday jewellery ready, we are nearly packed and even Billy is going away to stay with my parents.
Never mind he will be very spoilt whilst he is on his holiday.
Now before I close I would like to have a bit of fun like I did last year...have a guess from these photos where we are off to....we last visited this place in 2009.
Riddle me ree.......any ideas yet...
we usually say answers on a postcard but instead I say answers on my blog!!
Have a guess and I will reveal all with some new holiday photos on my return.
I will be back soon. I will leave you with a photo taken from the balcony of our hotel room taken in June 2009
Bliss...I can't wait.
See you all really soon, take care,
