Race For Life.

A while ago I signed up to do the Race for Life in Lancaster on July 11th.  I've been posting on Facebook to get my "friends" to sponsor me.  A lot of them know what I've been through with my eldest boy, he is a leukaemia survivor :o), yet they still choose to ignore my sponsorship plea!  The minimum donation is only £2.00 so it's a sorry state of affairs when your so called friends can't even give £2.00 to such a worthy cause.  What is the world coming to?!  I know times are hard but, please, it's just £2.00!  Rant over....and breathe!  I think a Facebook friend cull is in order!

Another lovely day.

Well, it's been another lovely day here on the Isle of Man so me and my youngest boy, Jamie, went to Ramsey for a little trip so I could stock up on some more beads.  Couldn't wait to get home and make something with are posted below.  They're such cheery colours for Summer.  As you can see I'm in a bit of a peahy orange mood at the minute.

Not sure how long this gorgeous weather will last as some people are saying there's another cold spell to hit us early next week.

Had a really good day today and have sold 4 bracelets!  I also sold one of my designs which I had on display at the hair salon I go to....that's the 5th item they've sold for me.

Have a great weekend everyone :o)

Craft Market.

I'm very excited as I got the booking form and details about the local craft market being held during the Summer.  I'm hoping it'll do well and will bring me lots more business and get my products known.  It'll be the first time I put my new designs on sale so hopefully they'll be well received.  I've had lots of positive comments about them when I posted them on my SC Jewellery fan page on Facebook so fingers crossed!

Spring is definitely here.....glorious day here on the Isle of Man, sunshine and warmth really makes you smile :o)

I'm still working on my website but I've got so much on at the minute I just haven't had time to get it all finished.

New designs

Here are my latest designs.  As I mentioned in my last post I've been working on some pieces which are less expensive than my usual designs.  They still have sterling silver components but the beads are sourced locally and are cheaper than the Swarovski crystal and handmade lampwork beads I usually work with.  I'm not putting these for sale just yet but keeping them for the events I have coming up.....a shopping night which I'm organising at my youngest boy's school in May and a weekly craft market I'm hoping to hire a table at during the Summer months.  All comments are welcome!

Looks like Spring is finally here!

Well, I've woken up to another lovely day here on the Isle of Man so maybe Spring is last.  We had a terrible Easter weekend, pouring with rain and blowing a gale.

I'm working on a few new designs at the minute that are less expensive than my usual pieces.  They'll still have the quality of sterling silver components but the beads will be cheaper than the Swarovski crystals and lampwork beads I normally use.  I'll post a few pics later today.

Easter weekend.

I found the most fab little shop when me and J were out and about today, I never even knew it existed until today!  It's full of beads, great beads!!  I spent an hour in there picking a mixture of beads of all shapes, colours and sizes. 

The lady who runs the shop also makes her own polymer clay beads and pendants.  I bought a heart shaped pendant which has swirls of purple and pink with a small pink flower with a diamante centre on the front of it....I've just sat tonight and make a necklace.  I also bought some cerise pink polymer beads with silver swirls....they've been made into a bracelet tonight.  I'm so pleased with how they've both turned out.  I'll post pics tomorrow.

The lady runs polymer clay workshops so I'm hoping to sign up for the next one so I can properly start on making my own beads.

Happy Easter everyone, have a great weekend x
