New bracelets

Some new bracelets from the very warm Sasha+Max studio.
The first uses some really really chunky beads by Artybecca, paired with onyx. black gunmetal rollo chain and lucite.

All Fired Up




The second is a favourite colour combination of mine, turquoise, orange and wood. Love that little toggle by Tierracast.

Crazy with the heat

I think I've gone bit craaaazy this afternoon - it is 41C here, and its 6PM  day 6 of 30 plus weather, and a 150 year record. I'm weather obsessed.. always have been since I was a kid ...  anywho.. . back to beads!

Regular readers might have observed that I' ve got a thing for birds and hearts - just can't help myself.  Well today its hearts a plenty.




Jennifer of Blue Seraphim made the sweetest glass hearts - if you're quick you can grab a set at her store. that is,  if I don't give in and buy some more myself.  I've made 2 pieces with them.





Bless Your Heart Necklace
This one has a nice casual feel, and I like that the heart is off to the side.I'm a big fan of assymetry.

Heart of Glass Necklace
Not much to this one, I know. I wanted to let the hearts speak for themselves - they are so beautiful and voluptuous.


Nancy of Round Rabbit also makes amazing porcelain hearts that are total contrast - grabbed about 4 on the last RR update binge - love the retro 70's geometric embossing on this one.









Enjoy the weekend dear readers, and stay cool / warm wherever you are.
