I've been making jewellery recently and have really got into it. I photographed everything bar one pair of earrings... However, some of the photos didn't come out as well as I hoped. Anyway here are some slightly blurred images of my jewellery. I'll try again and hopefully the next lot will be much better.

First one up is the first bracelet I've made. It's a charm bracelet in pinks and reds:

The second one was an experiment for my friend Nicki - it's half woven half "netted" and was quite complicated but fun to make:

This is a bracelet I made for my friend Liz - don't tell her, it's for Christmas! The bracelet has a beautiful leaf shaped toggle clasp and a little sun charm which I bought bought on eBay (as I did most of my beads).

And here are the matching earrings, also with teeny little sun charms.

Finally, the icy bracelet. Made today and my favourite so far.

I've also done an octopus bracelet and matching pair of earrings for Annis and a lovely pair of blue earrings for my friend Alison. I should get some nice pictures of these from Alison to share soon.

Lastly, I made a handbag charm in amber, browns, silver and copper, but the photo was just terrible... Hopefully, I will manage a nice photo of my jewellery one of these days...

Halloween is coming

I thought I deserved some fun with all that work and no play.... So I did some Halloween pictures.

The first one is Vampireena and her pet spider Blobbles. As you might have guessed, she's not as sweet as she looks.

Her best friend is Zombielou and his pet caterpillar Spikey. He is in fact the softy of the pair, in every sense of the word. :-)

Christmas Card 2005

This is my first design for a 2005 Christmas card. I love Art Nouveau and the German version "Jugendstil" so this is where the design idea originates.

Little Astronaut Part II - The Moon

A short while ago I did an illustration for Illustration Friday for the topic float. This is the second part to that illustration. I wondered where my little astronaut was off to and what he would find when he got there. This is what I came up with. :-)
