Spring Necklace Set

Today I finished making a necklace and earring set that I will be donating to the school for its Spring Art Show.

I took inspiration from a necklace I made recently for myself using white glass pearls of various sizes. I wear it quite a lot now that the weather is warming up! It makes everything feel a bit spring-like! You can see my inspiration necklace in the top right of the photo below.Spring! somethingspecialbyfiona.wordpress.com (683x1024)

The colours I chose to represent Spring were yellow and pink. I used a combination of beads in various colours, sizes and textures to make this necklace.

Each of the smaller charms are on headpins and each one is threaded separately on to wire, with frosted white beads in between each set of charms.

I hope it will help raise some funds for our local school.

Do these colours remind you of Spring? What other colours would you wear?

Christmas, my most favourite time of the year!

Oh, how I love Christmas! So it’s finally the time of year that I can share with you some very cute and popular Christmas angel earrings. I wear mine throughout the Christmas season and have them in a variety of colours.

I’ve also added some other fun Christmas charms – reindeer and Christmas trees

And recently, while trawling Pinterest (are you addicted yet??!!??) I saw some cute ornament hangers so had to make some of my own. I can’t wait to hang a selection of these on my tree!
