I made this ring, the cabochon is purple with blue dichroic glass, hand made by me ;-) i think i'm going to keep it and wear it when i go to chester races next week.
Next is this pendant, i was trying out some of my new glass, it is actually dark green although it looks black with orange dichroic glass, again it was handmade by me. I have to be careful now as i'm actually getting quite proud of my glass makes and getting a bit of a big head LOL.

I'm waiting for the postman today to hopefully bring me some glass i've ordered for making more pendants but more importantly some fibre paper as i have none left so can't make any more pendants till i get some. I did order some on saturday but as the payment went through there was a error and it said the transaction had been cancelled but when i tried again my bank wouldn't allow it. When i checked my email there was a message saying the payment had gone through??? so i sent a message to them asking if it had gone through or not but i've heard nothing so hopefully it will come today, fingers crossed.

I've also made a red one, it didn't turn out how i wanted it but it's still ok.
So my first one didn't go to plan and the courner was to close to the edge and got stuck, not a good thing as it can damage the kiln.
The second one i made into a pendant, looks pretty good, even if i do say so myself.

Next is brown and blue chunky glass beads with gold plated beads. I'm not sure which one i like best, i love them both. They are both available on my website .
I'm off to a creative stitches and hobbycraft show today, can't wait. I've looked at the list of stalls which are going to be there and there is a few bead shops so i'm happy.

I haven't done much cross stitching for a few years now and jewellery tends to take over but each time i look at my pile of kits i promise myself to do some more.

I made this bracelet yesterday, first one in a few weeks. I took my beads on holiday with me but didn't get round to using them. I've had the leaves for a while and also got some in green, yellow and white which i'm going to make another charm bracelet but with a gold bracelet. The leaves are lucite with silver foiled glass hearts and purple fire polished beads. I've also just treated myself to a new set of 4 pliers, my other one's were a bit knacked and were starting to hurt my hands when i used them so a new pair were long overdue.

I've been in wales for the last 10 days on holiday, i came home yesterday but thinking of going back down this afternoon or tomorrow. I've got some stuff to sort out like going the bank and ordering a statement so i can dispute the money which was stolen from me. I got a statement ordered for when i got home but it only goes upto the day before it was all taken, typical!

I'm away on holiday at the minute as the kids are off school for 2 weeks and i have had a phone call from my bank asking about my recent activity. As it turns out some *&$% has used my bank card to buy £200 worth of stuff from i-tunes. It's lucky the fraud department at the bank got onto it so quick otherwise they could of cleared me out.
The thing what annoys me the most is i'm on holiday and now have no bank card, as it has been cancelled. It's lucky i'm here with my husband - we have separate bank accounts, otherwise i'd have no money to feed myself or kids and no way of getting home because my car has less than a quarter of a tank of petrol. So i would be stranded here with starving kids just because some idiot wanted to have the latest songs on his *&$%£* ipod. If you are reading this and take part in this kind of thing think about the people and the situation you could be leaving them in by taking THERE money. Ok we get it back but only after we dispute it which could take weeks!
