A Blog about life... jewellrey...and beads...

This book will Exceed your expectations!

I love to make Jewellery and don't spend as much money on it as I really need to! Here is a new book by Cynthia Thornton an amazing multi-media artist. Cynthia and her husband Greg Ogden of Green girl studios have created a line of wonderful pewter focals for jewellery! Their work is featured in many magazines and books. Every time one turns around there work pops up around the world, even the lead singer of the Rock band Aerosmith has been seen with some of Cynthia's focals adorning his apparel. This is Cynthia's first book "Enchanted Adornments Creating Mixed-Media jewelry with Metal, clay, wire & more". The book will be out in November and you can pre-order now here! And this is the link to their facebook page: There are some Contests on the go as well. Check it out! I cant wait to get my copies!

Memorial Day and pondering

Yesterday was Memorial day, we had a great time my family and I cooking out in the green flowery garden. Back in my teenage years we always went to Jones beach for swimming then home to a big cookout and going over to my Cousins. But last night I felt a bit sad for all the people who have died for their freedoms and the freedoms of others. People even hundreds of years ago too crossed my mind. If you lived in Britain there were forever marauding peoples ready to steal your food, pillage and rape. All died for the same reasons for safety and their values.

On a lighter note this is what I have strung today. The lovely pewter toggle bird clasp is handmade by Green girl Studios. I cant wait to wear it! I need to tailor my wardrobe around my handmade jewellery! Bird was born in the flame!

Have a lovely evening all!
