Dangly Bits...................

Good morning everyone. Hope that you are all ok and not under piles of snow.
Its been bitterly cold here for the past couple of days so perhaps the "real " Winter has finally kicked in.

I'm enjoying being a couple of days into having just over a week off and boy do I need it. Spent the first day being very lazy and sloth like and yesterday, Nesta and I went to Lichfield for the day. Its only about 45 minutes from us and I wanted to visit a bead shop there so invited Nesta as she hadn't been to Lichfield before.

Had a lovely day, starting with a hearty breakfast when we got there, in and out of various shops (she managed to manhandle me away from the Radley handbag shop......I think I left a mark where my face was pressed against the window) then about an hour in the bead shop, followed by tea and a bun in a local bakery.......Happy days!

However, the bright, crisp day had now changed to dull and throwing it down on the way to the car park so the drive home wasn't great with the spray on the motorway. Still, it was an enjoyable day and we got home in one piece.

Now, I hope that you weren't expecting any rude photos of Flash over the road when you saw the title of this post as you will be disappointed (mind you, you still would be if I had posted photos of him lol!!!)
With me being in jewellery mode, I remembered that I hadn't shown the earrings that I made to match Nesta's glitzy necklace that I showed you all here.

Sorry about the glare from the Swarovski crystals. As you can see, they are extremely sparkly.
Nesta likes dangly ones (what can I say???) and all together, its a fairly glamorous ensemble.

In fact, here's the whole set together.....................

Sorry for the skewiff right hand earring.....obviously having a rebellious moment!
I'm enjoying having a tinker with jewellery again and will be having a play with yesterday's purchases in the remainder of my holiday.

Hope you all have a great weekend, maybe watching the CE take over on Hochanda?

  1. Absolutely fabulous dah-ling! Super ensemble and I have no doubt that Nesta absolutely loved it! Hope you are well and enjoying time off. Will drop you a lin - even though it's a bit cold to go fishing! Hugs Christine xx.

  2. Hi Ang. Beading is something that I am not going to get into (mind you, I used to say that about stamping) but this does not stop me appreciating the design and workmanship. This set is beautiful.

  6. Good morning Ang sounds like you had a good girls day out yesterday. We had snow on Thursday and some of it thawed so I was woken yesterday by the crunching of tyres on the ice as everyone headed off to work. Still a bit there this morning but the sun is shining so I hope it will penetrate the rest of the ice. Saw a bit of John yesterday, Hochanda has benefited by Hayley joining the presenting team. But back to your makes and the whole set is beautiful. Nesta must look glamorous wearing them. Looking forward to seeing your new makes in due course, love from Jackie xx

  7. Hi Ang,

    You crease me up with your dangly bits, in more ways that one lol! Gorgeous earrings to match an equally gorgeous necklace. I hope you mange to get some rest in your break.

    Love & hugs
