I'm sorry that I haven't blogged over the last few days as our modem died and I had to wait for a replacement to be sent to us.
Well I finished the Token. She is quite beautiful. I am quite pleased with her and more importantly Karen is absolutely thrilled with it. Its currently away being framed so she will be displaying it in Dragonfly Dreams when it is returned to her.
I am now currently working on Margaret Gibson from Scarlet Letter. She is beautiful. I love working on very fine linen and this satisfies this love. I haven't done that much but she is currently coming along nicely.
I have another love. I love making and designing jewelery for myself and my sister and future DIL. I saw this collection of jewelery in my favorite magazine, Victoria. (Welcome back I have missed you). When I saw this the creative juices started to flow as I have a very old medallion that belonged to my great uncle who died in 1916 in the battle of the Somme aged 20. I usually wear this on a gold chain on ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day. I is my way of remembering my Grandfathers brother.
I had a string of freshwater pearls that I had made into another necklace that I wasn't wearing so I converted it into the one below. I'm quite happy with it and I think I will get alot of wear out of it.
I thought I'd show you these 2 necklaces that are very special to me. I also love cameos. The large cameo belonged to my Mum and she gave it to me a few years ago. I love wearing it on the pearls as it reminds me of her. The smaller cameo was a present from my Sister. Both cameos came from Italy and I find that since I have added the pearls I wear them more often.
This one I have posted before. I made this as a 21st birthday present for my future DIL. It is very beautiful. It is made out of freshwater pearls, coin pearls, crystal hearts and silver findings.
I buy all my pearls and jewelery making supplies from my friend Karen's beautiful shop Dragonfly Dreams.
I'd like to say thank you to all the lovely people who leave their beautiful comments on my blog. You don't know how much they mean to me. Its nice to know that people are appreciating the things that you do. I hope that you all have a lovely weekend.
