Another quick update...

I promise that after Christmas you'll be sick of me updating the blog... but for now, it's another rushed entry. Got events tomorrow, Sunday and Monday morning. Then a party next Thursday and an outdoor (!) event on Friday... and then I'm finished for Christmas!!

So what's new?

Well, the workshop is coming along. Here it is with the funky shaped computer desk, the lovely IKEA cupboard (constructed by Tom) and the start of the workbench. I'm itching to get in there as the light is brilliant, but we're still waiting for the plumber to come and attach the radiator. It's far too cold to work in there at the moment - although it might come in handy as a second fridge over Christmas!!

Watch out!! What do you think of these? The bracelet part is byzantine with knobs on as I call it. They are selling pretty well and I'm enjoying making them. I've also done some in copper which is really pretty.
The rest of these are black sets using Black Agate. As always at this time of year, black is very popular.
The first one incorporated some lovely Sterling rectangles and Swarovski Crystals for a Christmas sparkle.
This is the seond of the Murano pendants in this style. The other one was slightly larger and that set has been sold. I was very excited when I found the glass beads with silver and gold in them and knew instantly that they'd go perfectly with the pendant. So I added in some black agate and Sterling Silver tubes.
The last black one is all black agate with Swarovski Crystals.

I think our decorations might go up this weekend. Tom's very keen to start getting into the festive spirit. I'll let the kids do most of it... but I'm very particular about my tree, so I'll do that - sometime! I'll take a photo when I'm done.

Right, I'm off to put my feet up and gather my energy for selling loads tomorrow (hopefully!).

Take care, All, and have a lovely weekend.

Much love.

nice work Lesley..the watch in bracelet style is awesome..the collection of pendant and necklace is also very unique and trendy...i really like it.

PS: I have initiated an idea to create a fashion and style blogroll where bloggers from the jewelry, fashion, style and beauty could participate.
All you need to do is to add my blog link to your blog and i'll do the same.
That way, we could have a mutual partnership and we could refer visitors to each other's blog.
Please let me know if you would be interested.
