MAWTT December Challenge. . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Good evening blogging chums. Hope everyone is well on this December Eve?

Well, I'm a bit late with this months MAWTT DT creation, which was due yesterday morning, as I'm having problems uploading my photos from my camera to my laptop. I keep geting messages about software conflicts. Don't know about the software but I certainly feel like having a conflict with the bloomin thing.
This month's theme for Team A has been chosen by the lovely Carole and is................................

As I am unable to upload the card that I had made, I'm showing a necklace I made for my best chum Nesta (and she is definitely someone very special, bless her) for Christmas a couple of years ago. Its made from Swarovski crystals, as are most of my jewellery makes as I just haven't found anything else that quite compares to the quality and sparkle. Everything else is silver and there is also a pair of earrings to go with it...............but, I'll keep those for another day lol!!!

It is one of my personal faves of pieces I have made and Nesta loved it as she wanted something glitzy to wear for a function.

Please pop over to MAWTT and see what the gals have come up with and why not enter the challenge too. As you can see, it doesn't need to be a card that you enter, just something that you made for someone special for Christmas.

Had a lovely meal and catch up with Wendy (Spanish Crafter and boss lady of MAWTT) and John on Saturday. I think she is heading back to sunny Spain tomorrow but its sad she doesn't live nearer as we all have such a laugh.

Well, that's me for now. Have to give the kitchen a tidy as we had a new cooker fitted this evening and it looks like there's been a fight in a polystyrene factory lol!!!

Keep warm and well and see you soon (technology allowing lol!!!)

  22. Beautiful necklace, I love the design and you are right, those crystals really do sparkle.

  23. Gorgeous necklace and hope you are back online soon. Happy Christmas to you and yours. Zx

  24. I was having problems with my camera on Friday too. It wouldn't charge up which meant I also couldn't download any pictures. Luckily half way through Saturday we found that the cable had come loose for the charger. Just saying in case yours is the same problem. We have so many cables going here there and everywhere under the desk its easy to loose sight of where they are actually connected to.
    Also managed to get the same camera going cheap on Ebay so I have a spare now ( model not made any more) as I would have a software conflict with a different one. The things we do to keep on blogging!!!
    Love your necklace. I have made a few pieces before at craft classes but must admit I have problems with those pesky jump rings. The crystals look lovely. Hugs Mrs A.

  25. Hi Ang! I am totally impressed with this necklace. So beautiful! I see we both decided to step down from HOC! Now that Mynn is closing down CASE-ing Christmas I can enjoy a little break! Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
