At last I can share

Two blog updates in one week.  Incredible, isn't it?  I'll make this one short.

I've been dying to share this with people for a couple of weeks but I couldn't as it's something I made as a gift for a friend.  I have no idea whether she is even aware that I have a blog but I couldn't take the chance that she might read it and spoil the surprise.

I went to visit her last night and handed over her gift and birthday card so now I can show you what I made for her.

I went to visit Bedazzled Beads shop in Blackridge a while ago and saw a lovely set of graduated onyx beads.  As soon as I saw them I thought of my friend's birthday as I know she likes onyx.  When I got home I teamed them up with some 8mm black Swarovski pearls, black and clear Swarovski crystals in different sizes and some silver plated chain.  My friend seemed pleased with it when she opened the box last night so I'm relieved.  I should make something in a similar style for myself as I really liked this once it was made.


  1. Thats stunning :-) I bet your friend was elated - I know i would be with a piece like that :-)

    Great work, looking forward to seeing the one you make for yourself :-)
