The picture don't do to much justice to the colors because the red should have a bit of glitter in.

I do believe this two videos will actually show how did I learn to do my bracelet Fruits of the Forest.
I must gice her all the credit on leraning my RAW and to thank for this videos.
And by the way I think the best way is to use beads at least size 11 or biger.

Beautiful day

Today is start to be a beautiful day but you know in Dublin you never can be sure.
Anyway my household is a bit ''under the weather'' as they say because of Leaving Cert and Junior Cert. Both of my children are very busy with this stupid exams. Anyway they have to be done and get over with .
I just  remember to show you a lovely bracelet which I have done folowing the istruction from Bead & Button magazin
I am not a big fan of metal work but this combination between the covered jump rings and bead work is going well.
I find may thinks in this magazine very nice but the single problem what I have is the magazine is a bit expensive in Dublin.
Sure in off we have to spend for our hobbies ... isn't?

Grumpy Mood

OK... did you ever have that impression when you are moody but try hard to think your OK??..
Yes right now I would like to kick some ass to the IT guys from my job.
Need to get home fast and do some beading to calm down ...

This weekend have been very productive for me . I was able to finish few pairs of earrings which I actually like myself.This are done with Swarovski crystals, seed beads size11 and silver wire.

In this pair all the beads are actually recycled

In general in all this pairs I used same kind of wire which I think is maybe to fine for the design.

Anyway I am on my way of waiting for my delivery of supplies which I am very exited about .

work in progress

I think the idea of following your own projects is a good think because this may impruve your drive to finish the project faster.So I decided to start doing this myself. For the start I will try to follow on my  gobelins tapestry.This pictures have been taken Friday.

I'll try to come with an update maybe by end of the week again. Anyway between going to the job and doing few more jwelery pieces we will see what the progress will be.

Bloom Festival Dublin 2011

This weekend we really had a great time. We been visiting the Bloom Festival in Phoenix Park were I got some great pictures . OK ... they been acquired with some help from my daughter.
The location was mentally busy and I mad the bad choice of having high heels which unfortunately have been broke on the way to the festival.Other then that all was beautiful.
The floral arrangements was absolutely amazing as you can see for yourself

Beside all this flowers was stalls of vegetables were I could not believe the size of onions. I probably use one of those in a full week of cooking...
I have here a picture of lilies just to show you the size of this flowers. The necklace what I wear is my first attempt of beading crochet. Anyway is done from a hand full of recyclable beads and just few leftovers swarovski crystals.

And here is is my beautiful daughter which took a break from her study for the leaving cert and another pic of me with my husband.
