I've been pretty busy recently with findings orders and copper bangle orders - some of them from my website which is slowly picking up buyers thank goodness (patience is a virtue!) So now they're done and I've got a bit of time I thought I'd better get some earrings made for my shops.
I decided I like the spotty look you get with nail varnish and etching so I went for some spotty silver and copper studs first ..........
Then I felt all hoop inspired and made a few pairs of silver hoops with added lampwork and ceramic flower beads. I do love a hoop :D
So now that I have a few new items to add to my shops and website over the next week I can relax and get on with the next thing that's running round my brain which is..........enamelled supplies for people to use in their own designs. It will be mainly discs at first in a choice of colours and a couple of sizes. I'd love to include enamelled headpins but when I tried enamelling headpins a long time ago the results were pretty varied with lots of them cracking and bits of enamel falling off sometimes minutes, hours or days after they were made. I've read this is normal for other people too so they won't be featuring in my enamelled findings range as they would be too unpredictable and stress inducing!
So now you know what I will be doing over the next few days!
