A Bit of Bling . . . . . . .

Good morning my little duckadees. Hope you are all fit and well.
Welcome back to Heather from her hols. St Albans certainly looks nice this time of year and the council  have done a great job renovating that bandstand hahaha!!!
Big congrats to Kate for being on Joanna Sheen's daily talent spot yesterday. . . . . .I saw it and thought "I recognise that card !!!"

Thank you for all of your kind comments about my buddleija card. I can honestly say that I am really not a patient person. I punched the iddy biddy (technical term) flowers out of a piece of card whilst I was watching TV so it didn't seem a chore and sticking them on didn't take as long as you may think.

Now today, I have decided to show some more jewellery as its been a while and I need to get some more cards photographed, so I hope that you don't mind. Please excuse the photography; I was not having a David Bailey moment lol !!!
I have used my favourite Swarovski crystal bicones in different shades of purple and pink and also graduating sizes to create a tapered effect on this pendant, hanging from a silver chain.
Each crystal is attached, individually, to a piece of chain by headpins and the earrings match.

I also made the same set in green and blue Swarovski too.

Hope that you like them.

At least the folk who bought them did lol !!!

Have a great day all and lets be careful out there!!!

  1. Good Morning Ang, oh I don't mind at all, your jewellery is beautiful, I love crystals and your design and colours are fantastic. Strangely enough, I was on a girls day out yesterday (on my own, in Glasgow and was prowling around in thr Swarkoski shop, love their stuff.

    Thanks for the heads up on the joanna spotlight thingy, I hadn't a clue, so it was a lovely end to a lovely day, Kate X

  2. Beautiful jewellery surprisingly subtle in colour! Really like the way they taper down. Your photography is great although I think your hubby could have posed with them for you to make it easier perhaps with an off the shoulder number!! :)

  11. Hi Ang,
    I was just toddling by your pond, and found these lovely pieces of jewelery. Great colours and creations. Very pretty.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Toddling off again.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  12. Beautiful Ang simply stunning I have never tried jewellery so impressed by people who can create beautiful jewellery like these. I do think that Mr duck in off the shoulder might have detracted from the earrings!

  14. Hi Ang, oh dear blogger is playing silly bloggers and won't let me comment for some reason so I'll try again. Gorgeous beadwork, love those graduated crytals, they look fab. I can't find the link for the watermarks, they were in the Polkadoodles shop so i'll ask Nikky where they've gone and pop back with the link
