Why every girl should make her own jewellery!

Otherwise called buy lampwork beads and hold onto them cos you never know when they will come in handy!

Soo....very very naughtily Tony and I have been shopping I have bought a dress and Tony bought a pair of trousers both in the sales which we stumbled across today! Why the post?

Well...there I was in Monsoon trying this dress on in teal and white polka dot both of which I do not normally do! It fitted a treat and I totally loved it and half price to boot! Then my little head starts going mmm...jewellery etc etc.

I got home and found these little teal fritty beads I have had languishing for a while and I made the pendant you can see above. Apologies for the crap photo, poor light and taken in a hurry but I am hoping you get this gist! How cool is it that I can buy a dress and a couple of hours later (and a few designs!) I have a totally unique piece of jewellery. I have a pair of earrings also to match the necklace. The necklace is hung from a 5mm closed sterling silver jump ring so I can slot it onto my ole favourite my macrame choker or I can slide it onto one of my sterling silver chains if I want. Completely versatile and a one off. What more could a gal want.

I will get Tony to take a picture of the whole ensemble later and post it tomorrow or monday!

Have a lovely weekend
