Earring Display

I'm pleased to have found a new way to display my earrings! I had been experimenting to find new ways to display them, I had come up with the idea of making earring cards, then there was the picture frame idea, but while shopping last week I saw a mini canvas for sale... pierce some holes in it and you have a great earring display! I've also invested in a couple of A4 size canvases. I have a craft evening this Friday so I'll be able to test out my new display then!

Using the mini canvas is my favourite way to display earrings!

New Bracelets

Its been a while since I've updated my blog! I guess it because I prefer pictures to words! But here I am, with a new resolution to blog on here more regularly! To start here are photos of my latest bracelets and pics that I took during the process of making them (I do love "before" and after "pictures") The bracelets featured Douglas Tartan and beautiful dark blue beads to match it. I hadn't really used Douglas before, it was requested by a customer, I'm really pleased with the results. I guess I'd got stuck in a rut of using my usual tartans (Macdonald and Mackenzie) but this has encouraged me to experiment more with new tartans and colours... Its time to create some new designs!

Ta Daaah! The finished product!
