>Some Jewellery at Last..


Its weird, the other day I sat in my lovely craft room, and thought to myself, I am a Jewellery Maker, I mean that’s what Innocent Charms was started for, and to be honest certainly what I am better at.

But when I found Swap-bot and the world of ATC’s I think my Jewellery got put on the back burner and to be honest with sales being sooooo bad I think I lost my Mojo.

Then last week my MIL asked me to make a couple of Jewellery sets for my younger SIL, I really enjoyed it although if I am honest they weren’t my best sets but it did spear me on to make some pieces, so here’s what I did very basic but I enjoyed.

This set I made for a Swapbot swap, its Grey Large Glass Pearls, Cats Eye Beads and Seeds, I love the Grey and White combo.
This Long Necklace I have made for my Mom for her Birthday, I love the colours, I may even make one for myself, its full of FW Pearls, Swarovski Crystals and Accent Beads.

I have also been crafting on the paper craft side too..
These are some ATC’s I have been making, the top Betty Boop was just cause she is the greatest. The 4 Circle ATC’s are for a swapbot swap and went in the post this morning. The 2 bottom ones are for a Butterfly theme Swap. I really think I need to improve my ATC’s I think they look a little like a kid has done them.

This is a gorgeous swap I received through swapbot from a generous lady called Nicola, she made the Earrings and then sent some Bracelets as a little extra, i always love getting some jewellery as I never keep any of my own and feel bad about buying

This is a Terrific Turquoise Swap through swapbot, the top piccy is the first one I have received loads of extra goodies yippee, the second piccy is of stuff I am sending out.

Thanks for popping by, love to hear how you are all doing.
