I managed to put three new items on the etsy shop today, it seems to take me an age! I have more silver necklaces to add when I can. I was able to make some hearts today - I will put them on here when they are pendants! Also a butterfly, my first attempt and I really enjoyed making it.

New year, new camera!

I was given a lovely camera for christmas, and I'm so thrilled with it - it can do super macro ie so close that the lens practically touches the subject! This is fab for photographing beads.. not only that, but it also does 'auction' shots so that you can get two ( or three or four) pictures in one frame as in the following pictures. I haven't really had much time making beads - two weeks off over christmas, but I am itching to get stuck in again!
Here are a couple I managed to do last week, playing with some frit which I also got for christmas!
