It's time to Play!!!

New Year, New Brief!

And the title ... PLAY!

So first thought - toys, games, childhood!!


Experimentation is the name of the game, with surface texture, colours and combinations of the two. There were several themes to choose from to give a starting point in the project, from which I have picked Coast.

So the work has begun, the countdown has started and Time is Running Out (according to Muse).

Will try to be more forth coming with posts this time, promise

The Bee up-date

During the Summer break, inspired by the Home Sweet Home project, I set about developing the beaded bees further, instead of having them solely as an embellishment or decoration, I wanted to transform them some thing with a little more function and/or purpose.

And so an idea was born...

What if I could make pieces of jewellery, using the beaded bees as the feature??

And the result??

Well see for yourself ...

This set is the basic idea that was developed using a stud earrings and pendent style, and touch wood, non of the beads have of yet gone flying!
