Almost back on the horse

I've got an exciting looming to get started on soon. Hopefully it turns out as good in real life as it looks on the computer!! I won't be able to reveal it until the recipient has seen it.

It's going to be 5"x7" so I needed a new loom big enough. After remembering something I saw, I came up with this:

It's basically just a photo frame with upholstery nails and springs (from a plate holder)!

Quiet for too long!

Yes, it's been a long while since I posted anything at all. Reason being I've done hardly any beading at all since Christmas. I guess you could call it a 'short break'.

I'll soon be back in the midst of it all though. I'm participating in an 'online class' via a group on facebook. I also got in an order yesterday which I have to work on. This means I may (read WILL) need to have a second loom.

In the meantime here's a little eye candy from me. Just some earrings someone requested after seeing my simpler ones :)

The hearts are Crystal AB but boy was this bling hard to photograph!!

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by. Hopefully I'll have more postings over the coming weeks!
