Busy Busy

January is now in full swing and so is the jewellery making, having the little one go to the childminders twice a week is helping enormously even though most of the time has been spent catching up on paperwork and accounts, its time well spent.
It hasn't been all filing though and I managed to get a few pieces that Ive been trying to finish for ages done. I was lucky enough to get some really funky lampwork tabs from Laura the other week which were exactly what I was after to finish this

I've also been busy with Chainmaille, to be honest it never really appealed to me, but since Jo made me a kit for my birthday (she made all the rings herself) I cant help myself.

I'm really into the Jens Pind weave at the moment, and its going down a storm with the boys, I've just finished a commission for a 20" necklace, (my first man necklace) and a gorgeously huge 14ga bracelet, again for a man. Not wanting to be out done by all these men I made two lighter girly bracelets - gotta have your lampwork girls !

I'll be uploading this to the site in the next few days, so keep a look out for them.

Yes, I think it's safe to say that you're now addicted to chainmaille Nicky! Good job that there's a friendly koil kutter up the road! I love the bracelets. See you soon
