Oceanic drifts

I know i said i would blog more so i thought i better get my finger out, Seeing as the weather is cold and horrible outside, i thought i would make some jewellery in summery colours, and here is the first piece. I have used chrysotine A + grade semi precious beads with aquamarines, and the lampwork bead in the centre is made by Clare Scott.
I also bought a pasta maker today, not to make pasta with but to roll out my new creations in fimo, i have an order of 120 keyrings, i will post photos as and when they are made.
I also treated myself to a new phone, i have the new blackberry storm 2 which looks fab. and i will use this to blog more (ha),
so glad it's nearly the weekend, we are going out with the kids on saturday for Robyns 10th birthday, off to the cinema to watch Avatar then for a chinese, can't wait.

I know i said i would blog more but! i just never have a minute these days, I have added this onto my flickr page today, finally finished, it has been on my work bench for weeks, so i thought i better get it finshed and photographed today. I have made more of my little flowers, using copper pipe, the centre flower is sterling silver, i have oxidised parts of the flowers then lightly polished parts, i will be adding this to my etsy site hopefully tomorrow, hope everyone had a lovely valentines day, and that your partners where good to you all?

Water lily necklace

I made this necklace back in December and i sent in the tutoral to the beads and beyond magazine, you can catch this in this months issue which is out next thursday 11th Febuary, on page 22, I have made the copper flower in the centre using copper pipe, the beads are from bijoux beads, one of my favourite online shops, and the gorgeous ribbon is from Diane Turton from sowZeredesigns, I'am really pleased with the comment from the Editor of the magazine (Michelle Powell) quote "I gauge my love for our projects, by how soon i grab my tools and want to give that particular technique or design a try, This time Eve Smith has inspired me to get some metal and saw away. I hope she gives this a try and lots more as well.
