Oh dear, its been a while….

So sorry, haven’t posted for months, but time flies when you’re having fun!

Work was busy, life was busy and in between I did get some beading done.  Here is what I have been working on…  I have also been trying to build up stock and images for my new range of glass cabochons, more of those below.

This bangle was made using directions that Jean Power sent me and I hope it will be featured in a forthcoming book of similar geometric techniques.

I made these earrings for myself and they are teeny, weeny swarovski 10x8mm crystals that I beaded around and added to earring loops, they are my current favourites.

As part of Operation Tackle That Bead Stash I am participating in Bead & Button’s Bead It Forward project – people from all over the world bead up small squares of fabric and they are sewn together to make quilts and are auctioned in aid of Breast Cancer Research charities.  Such a brilliant idea and I have made a couple already 🙂

I mentioned earlier my new venture into glass cabochons, and you can see lots more at http://www.etsy.com/shop/wingsmith2010 – but here are some of the types of images I use and also a finished piece – my peacock necklace using one of the cabs.

Also mid August I had some shoulder surgery done and although I was out of action for a few weeks I am back in 90% motion again, and I think beading and creating is great physiotherapy!
