I won’t apologize for this absence, as I spent it lounging around the cottage.
I also managed to produce a few things as well! For this trip I decided to finally give Kumihimo a try. Working with ribbon is a lot more travel friendly than large quantities of jump rings.
So here is what we ended up with.
A lanyard in my companies colours to keep my security pass on.
A necklace to hang this stunning glass pendant on that I have had for ages!
Not that I neglected my chain maille passion! Before we left, I got together for tea and beading with my friend Meghan and took some fabulous dyed shell discs and combined them with some byzantine in black nickel 7mm. I really like the effect!
and I finally found a way to use a little something I put together ages ago. I made this piece with two frog beads that I just loved but were designed for pandora style bracelets so I put them together with some other beads to make what could have been a brooch or bracelet, a necklace or anything really. I had some full Persian in silver plate and thought, “aha”, so now I have a hungry froggy bracelet.
I am looking forward to wearing this one to work tomorrow.
Till next time!
