Vortex Cocktail ring

2 fab open back sterling silver ring shanks arrived on my door mat yesterday morning. I could hardly contain myself, I have not made any cocktail rings for a while. I went straight to work and made this one, Vortex. The focal bead was made by lovely Laura Sparling http://beadsbylaura.co.uk/ and I have added added fresh water pearls, Czech and Swarovski crystals, amethyst, moonstone, cherry quartz, shell chips and fluorite to compliment the swirling vortex of lilacs and pinks in the lampwork bead. It is listed on both my folksy store
http://folksy.com/items/120286-Vortex?shop=yes and my own website http://kookiedesigns.web.officelive.com/cocktailrings.aspx I am thinking Carnelian flowers and lots of Amber's and oranges for the other ring.
Have a super day xxxxxxxx

uber talented

I had a teaching party on Saturday night for 6 lovely and uber talented 14 year old Ladies. They made the most stunning cluster charm necklaces and a charm bracelet, which they were all delighted about. I promised that I would blog and post some pictures of their creations, so here they are. The clusters are so pretty and the colours are really well thought out. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching these lovely Ladies, so Emma and Friends thank you xx

More, more, more

I have been beavering away getting ready for Jewellery parties and fairs. I have made some more pendants this week with lashing of sterling silver, lampwork beads by Clare Scott and Laura Sparling , KHT silver and oodles of Swarovski. I have used lots of Swarovski elements in these new pendants, they are so beautiful and very spakley, great for Christmas glam. I have also taken delivery of some yummy giant lampwork daisy beads, they are fab. I have made a bracelet, necklace and earrings with them, as well as a really bright "banish the winter blues" necklace with lampwork and polymer beads. They will all be listed later in the week so do keep popping by the website. Don't forget there is 10% off all orders placed between now and 15th December. Have a super week and take care Melxxxx

Planet Jurassic

I have listed lots of new silver rich pendants today to the Kookie Site http://www.kookiedesigns.com/.

I have had to make a second and slightly different Jurassic Planet to sell, the first one begged to stay here and I had to keep it! I have also made a Jurassic Universe with a cluster of scrummy beads by Clare Scott http://www.blogger.com/www.beadsbyclarescott.co.uk with a Cosmic Swarovski Element, all of the pendants have lashing of Hill Tribe silver in them. I have had so much fun making them. I am definitely on a silver making theme at the moment. I hope you like, have a fab weekend xxxx
