new glass

The winner of the competition was Beadmonkey who suggested 'in the beginning' - it was a hard decision in the end with lots of great names!

I got a bit of new glass and I love the colours! The heart is 'kryptonite' from CIM and I think it's gorgeous..

I also bought myself a tool to make off-mandrel leaves, to go alongside my off-mandrel hearts..

bead comp.

I'm giving away one of my beads (the one pictured above) - I really like the way it came out, but unfortunately it has a little hole on the front, so I thought I'd give it to the person who comes up with the best name for it!

It certainly feels like autumn, doesn't it? I got up at 5.45 this morning and it was very dark.. soo tempting just to crawl back into bed again! I thought it would be very quiet on the bead front, but my silver core beads have been popular - I love making them, but I must make a few bead sets and focals for peeps to make jewellery in time for Christmas.. and I should really do some more jewellery myself!
