I am hoping to get two collections ready for the end of the month although a quick holiday to Ireland may get in the way!!! Here are a few pictures...
I am still trying to find my own style and must admit at the moment resin is looking like a hot favourite! I love the idea of mixed media and resin is perfect for this. I just need to focus a bit more and stop jumping from one idea to the other without thinking....

As you can probably tell I still havent worked out how to do stuff on here! I think things need rearranging. I am trying to share a link to another blog so will try again to see if i can do it! I have been buying lots of new beads by some amazing artists and i cant wait for them to all arrive....and then i had better get making! I could just end up with the biggest bead hoard in the World if i dont!

I have lots to share - lots of pictures of the lovely flowesr in my garden plus a few holiday pictures from my trip to Switzerland. Not quite sure how to add pictures from my i pad so will have to do that at some point tomorrow...I am just determined to try and keep this blog going! I have been experimenting with some new jewellery making ideas and i am hoping to get two collections out. I love using crystal glaze and am very tempted to try using resin in my designs. I also like the idea of mixed media designs having made quilts in the dim and distant past. I have bought some new art beads and am awaiting two deliveries from the USA as well as some beads by UK artists. They are all by well known artists and i am very excited to be using their beads in my work. I am also comissioned a polymer clay artists to work on some of my design ideas...all so exciting for me! I am hoping when i win the lottery to do this full time! One of my main problems though is my inability to keep to one idea and my mind jumps all over the place. I have decided to make up a design pad so i can keep track of my ideas...this may slow me down and prevent there being about 20 things on the go at once! Anyway pics to follow of flowers and all things nice
