Beads from yesterday!

Had a go at key beads, these are a bit of a revelation to me, I have always loved fancy keys anyway, and often pick unusual old keys up from different places, now that I can add glass to them it takes them to a whole new level! only made 2 so far but love it. also been making more organic beads, using silvered glass to good effect too in the new here they are anyway

Buzy buzy beader!

Goodness me, I have been away from my blog for ages! Been exceptionally busy trying to organise my stash of beads for a potential Christmas market eeek what have I got myself into? also been slowly but surely learning how to make bead again on my new torch setup, think I have finally found the secret, at least the beads are coming out nice and round now so that's a start eh? Been trying my hand at key beads too, and very nice they are too....all will be revealed very soon. Anyway another day in the studio beckons, after I have walked the dog and done some

Love Mandyx

Been ordered to take the camera with me :) and get on the front row, wish me luck with that one, I can't run in heels :)

Had a super busy week this week with one thing and another...hardy any torch time at all. Going to make some prototypes today see if they work out....

Off to Ikea for beds in a bit, exciting! but got my gorgeous little niece and nephew staying on Saturday night, so it's popcorn and disney films all day....can't wait.

Anyways later folks......

Lovely weekend and sorting stuff out!

Had a great time in Stafford as I knew we would...can't really go wrong if the wine and conversation are flowing eh?
Oh and it was sunny too...bonus :)

Have spent yesterday and today on a big clear out mission, got loads onto ebay, will miss all my jewellery making stuff, but hopefully I will get into the silver smithing soon, and will be able to replace it. Thing is it's pointless keeping things you won't use again isn't it? May as well go to a good home, and it all helps the lampworking kitty too.

Had a nice day today so far, like having a clear out, seems to clear your head out too!
Off to the shedio to be creative.....

Off to Sunny Stafford!

Hope it's still sunny when we get there.
Looking forward to a nice, relaxing weekend, chilling with our friends.....
the wine will be flowing, we may even put the erasure cd on again and dance around the kitchen like fools.....ah well at least I couldn't remember a thing last time :)  heh heh

Have fun folks....cos I will be :)

Very good fun!

Have filled the kiln with odds today, just testing a few different styles out to see if I like them,
Made more nice twisties, I like making them, it's therapeutic,

So I have diddled about, made a lovely(I hope) dinner, and now I am on here....typical Sunday really!
Finally found a new screen for my poorly laptop, and treated her to a new keypad too, cos the r is missing and driving me nuts  :)
So hopefully the poor old thing will be good as new next week, wahey!!!

Ma mojo came home!!!!

Oooooh, was making  twisties, decided to have a go of a bead, and ended up making 2 whole sets today, fingers crossed they will be ok....I think the wind must have inspired me, as the shedio was rocking..:)
It still is, proper gale force winds here, bit scarey actually.

Well off to watch strictly, and drink muchly from my cup of wine...( it's a glass really) and eat lots of choklit!

See ya,


Stringer and cane!

Decided to spend the day making stringer and twisties, it might help me find my mojo, if not then at least I will have plenty of supplies for when it finally comes back off its holidays! lol

Windy today, very autumnal indeed, I love Autumn, it's my favourite season by far :) Hope my studio doesn't blow away, cos I will be in it, and that would be bad ;)

Anyways off to my little haven,

Went to Ikea, I like Ikea, and would like to live there hehehe, bought slippers! and candles, nice combo, then headed for the Birchwood shopping centre and found it, woohoo very pleased with moiself for that. Got some lovely bedding and came home and now I am having a cuppa and debating going down to the studio to find my mojo :)
