Made in Zakynthos

I thought I would show you some of the jewellery I made whilst on holiday in Zakynthos last month. I always take some beads with me when we go over there as I find it a great way to unwind, sitting by the pool making jewellery. However, if I took less beads I could probably take more clothes, well actually the three of us could as I always share my beads between all three cases :)


 The earrings are made from Lucite flowers in various colours and each flower centre is a Swarovski crystal.

 The necklace is made using AB acrylic 'crystals', silver lined clear seed beads and from silver frosted round beads
 The bracelet is made using the same beads as above but without the silver frosted beads. It also uses Lucite flowers and is finished off with a sterling silver clasp.

This bracelet / bangle is so effective. One half of the bangle is silver plate and the other half is purple suede thong. It closes by looping the thong over the heart and is kept shut using the round diamante bead which slides up and down.

There, I hope this has made a change as it's not very often I get to just sit and make jewellery unless it's commissioned but we're back to cards tomorrow. Well it's actually a card and a.....ha, not telling, you will just have to pop by tomorrow and have a look :)

Thanks for looking.
Sleep tight. xx

Beautiful makes Jackie - and how relaxing that must have been sitting by the pool. Pity you can't always craft in such lovely surroundings.
