I swear I've never known anything like it; but my luck continues. DH has just returned from a trip to the US and confessed he's lost one pair of his very expensive glasses and the lovely case I got for him to keep them in. Where? Don't know! Must have just dropped out of his bag at some stage. Grrrr. Then I saw Stacey's blog give-away and thought, if I won this, DH would not dare lose his glasses again else the boys and I would kill him for losing something cat orientated. Imagine my surprise when I won! I don't normally win anything but this is my 3rd (and I presume last since things happen in 3s) win recently. I am delighted.
My prize arrived today and I couldn't wait to open it. It took a while - the mailer had been well covered in tape - but that just added to the excitement. Inside was my wonderful prize,
and a cute laminated 'thank you' card with a lovely and true sentiment on the reverse -
Stacey where do you find the time to make these???
In case you are interested to see what else I have been up to this week, I've been making more sea glass jewellery. Some cute pendant earrings will soon appear in my Etsy and Folksy shops using some sterling silver celtic themed connectors I bought recently. I've also been experimenting with making some more threaded sea glass necklaces, as a change from those I make on twisted silver wire. Having sorted out the components for a recent commission I thought I ought to explore them some more before putting them safely away in my workshop. These will probably go to a local gallery but keep an eye out for similar in my shops.
The top necklace is blue and aqua sea glass with sterling silver twisted heishi
The bottom necklace is lavender sea glass with sterling silver and twisted heishi
Both are made from English sea glass the colours of which are quite rare for us to find and collected by myself around the shores of south west England.
