A Spot of Jewellery. . . . . . . . . .

Good morning folks. Hope life is treating you well. A busy few days at this end with work, a couple of appointments, popped to visit Mr Lockwood on Friday then to see John again, this time demoing at my local craft store yesterday.

More to come in the busy stakes this week too. Manager off so I'm in extra days, another appointment and Mr D has a hospital appointment and I'm at the NEC on Thursday......phew!

Welcome to another new follower. Blogger is keeping you under cover but thank you for pressing the button, whoever you are.

Now today I'm back to some jewellery. This set was a thank you gift for a kind lady, who had done me a few favours and as I know it is now in her possession, its safe to show here. Tracey likes bright and bold colours so I went with a big splash of colour ready for Summer (I'm an optimist so I'm sure that we'll get one lol!!!)

Apologies for the use of the lampshade again lol!!!

I love fuchsias (as you may have gathered from the other necklace I made here) so I featured one as the focal point.

Matching earrings but with a simpler flower so that they didn't detract from the necklace.

Hope you don't mind the jewellery detour.

At work today but hope that you all have a peaceful Sunday and great week ahead.
May bump into some of you at the NEC.......those who have met me will just need to look for the hair lol!!!

  18. Good morning Anj,
    Oh how pretty is your fuschia necklace, i hope that Tracey loved it and wears it as it is bonnie flower. It would add that touch of panache to a plain outfit allowing your beautiful necklace to shine through. Yes i too love those little ballerina flowers in their gorgeous tutus as that is what i see dancing in the garden that has fuschia's in it, little ballerinas (see brains off again but hey you know this about me by now Anj). Did you have a good day with your other man at the weekend? I love Darlington and the people that are in it, so friendly, helpful and kind. Poor Mr D. i hope that he is ok at his hospital appointment and it is nothing to worry about. Enjoy your day at the NEC flower as after extra working and being glamerous assistant for John you need some fun, but don't do anything i wouldn't do(which gives you fair scope)
    Love and crafty hugs
    Norah (Glenochil Village)

  19. Hi Ang,
    oh this necklace is gorgeous.
    I bet the recipient loved it.
    Snap I too love fuchsias as the flowers last all summer long.
    Enjoy your NEC visit, and I do wish I was going, but the journey is a tad too long for me from where I live.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  20. Hi Ang, love the necklace and matching earrings, we will get summer. Eventually. Take care and enjoy your week. Bx

  22. Hey Ang, hope you had a wonderful weekend. Weather here is cheering up a bit and so am I! ha! Love the necklace set. The colours are beautiful and so much work went into stringing all those beads. Good grief! Well have a great week! hugs :)

  23. I'm always happy to take a detour to see jewellery and this necklace is very pretty.
