Folk Fest Necklace

The jury is out and my “Folk Fest Necklace”, which was entered for the Finished Jewelry category of the 2013 Fashion Colorworks Beading Contest, didn’t make it to the final ten.

It was clear even from the thumbnails that some wonderful creations were participating in all three categories.  It was really beneficial for me to take on the challenge and create my first major work featuring Soutache.  I’m really happy with the way it turned out. :D

A Woodland Choker

I made my first creation specifically for ArtFire this week, as part of the Handmade In Europe Guild’s monthly challenge.  This month had a Woodland theme and I used suede, wooden beads and glass flowers and leaves.

Available for sale in my ArtFire shop.

A Gallery of Mum’s Paintings

Today we’re celebrating Mother’s Day and I’ve put together some of my own mum’s paintings in a post just for her!

Tulip – folk art hand painted pendant

This week’s European Street Team’s challenge, which was hosted by ZsBcreations with the theme “The Tulip”, inspired me to pick up a paintbrush after a very long time and paint a folk art pendant.

My handpainted tulip pendant is now in my shop.
