Challenge complete

Jenn from Kanna Glass Studios set a challenge a few weeks ago with a give away of these lovely French Country bead set.

Sooo this is what I have come up with:
The ring is made with a stunning bead by Mindy Macgregor of Moogin beads with the French Country beads and lashings of semi-precious stones, pearls and Swarovski crystals on a sterling silver ring shank.

The Necklace is made with shrinkies butterflies, which i decorated with coloured pencils, chain Jenn's beads and Swarovski crystals. I love the trash chic of this necklace and may have to keep it :)

Thank you again Jenn for these lovely beads, it was an ace giveaway and I really enjoyed the challenge
Have a super sunny weekend

I have been a fairly erratic blogger for the last few weeks, sorry! I have been beavering away with making bits and adding bits to the website, which is now full to gunnel's

May fav is this ring, I bought some Lavish beads from Julie at Lush Lampwork , which are stunning and made the ring with one of them along with lashings of semi-precious stones and pearls. I do love it.
I had such a lovely week last week, lovely Laura sent me a stunning pressy which I shall blog about tomorrow as I need to take some pictures. Her beads are sooo lovely, she has some up far grabs tonight at 8:30 have a squizz if you can .
I also had a gift from Jena at Kanna Glass studio , a challenge set of bead, which I am really excited about. I shall get working on the challenge next week and post pictures then
Right bed time for Leo so I'm off for story time and snuggles. Have a great week and let me know what you think of the new bits if you get a mo, any feedback welcome (as long as it is kind ;) )

Make Jewellery

We are home after a lively week in very sunny Devon with my parents. Leo had a ball mostly on the river and digging wherever he could! I had a lovely surprise whilst I was there, 3 of the pieces that I had made of a Gallery in Dartmouth had sold. I am so pleased as they were higher end pieces and I was worried that they would hang around looking all lonely and in need of a good home.
The really exciting news for me is that Make Jewellery Magazine have featured Kookie Designs as their Folksy shop of the month. I am dead chuffed. It is the first time that Kookie Designs has been featured in any way in a magazine, I know I am gushing but YAY! It is a great publication, really slick without being too much.
Anyhoo- I am off to try to get my stubborn computer to let me edit the 120 pictures of new jewellery that need doing before I can list anything, grrrr to technology.
Have a great and sun shiney day
