Missing in action

Yesterday I reminded myself that that sometimes I have to stop and make jewellery for me to wear too. Must be the change of season.  These are some sterling rounds that I made in a silver jewellery course last year - they're a bit rough but go well with the leather, some wood, and an eclectic mix of beads by Humblebebeads, Blue Seraphim and Outwest.

Spending a lot of time in my own head space doing the post-holiday life direction contemplation, as you do. Been a bit quiet on the blog front, just doing some catch up with the Sasha+Max shops this weekend after a lovely big sale to a Brisbane store, having some quality cat time,  and trying to get some fitness regime happening... hmmm,  must be spring...

Greetings from Lord Howe Island

We're on a short break, and whilst my brother and sister-in-law Andy and Lone babysit (i.e. spoil completely....!) the giant cats, we are wandering around Lord Howe, a UNESCO World Heritage listed Australian island located off New South Wales. This is our second visit - the weather's been very wet but we've (i.e. Kevin, my husband) taken some good photos as it is such an amazing place.

This fish was swimming so close to the beach shoreline - he is the most amazing emerald and blue colour.
Sunshine forecast for tomorrow..more photos I hope.

Some beautiful ceramic pieces arrived in my mail box over the past few weeks, inspiring a little less colour than my usual palette.

These white tiles by Dot of Winchell made me squeal when I opened the package. I've combined them with Seraphim's swirled  white glass beads, and Miss Ficklemedia's rosette copper hooks.

Nancy of Round Rabbit sent me this divine misty pink moth which sits very sweetly with some copper chain, frosted glass and Swarovksi crystal. Very girly girl, I must say!

Both pieces are now in the Etsy store. Have a lovely weekend my friends!
