  1. MT - many thanks for your unexpected card and gift today - so very kind of you. The card was, of course, made by MT's own fair hand - I will try to photograph tomorrow. And the beads are a mixed and ever so useful pack of bugle/ seed beads and also larger glass beads. Very generous of you, and it brought a smile to my face! You're a star. xxx

    RAK thanks - October jewellery swap

    I especially like ALL of them! ;-) xx
  3. Sorry about this being late - Internet problems. Many thanks for the generous participants in the October jewellery swap. Here's the pics of the lovely RAKS I received! Larger pic, from top left. The brown / green / amber beads are from Chris22, a gorgeously coloured mix. I can imagine them with gold colored charms and findings. Thank you Chris. The blue mix is from Bahrain Susie, the photo doesn't do them justice, as there are crystal bicones in there, charms, glass beads, clay beads - a real seaside holiday theme! Thank you, Susie - they will make some fab items. The three bags of multi-coloured beads are all from Maritrez, how bright and cheerful are they! Bright colours are a great challenge for me too.... watch this space!' The final group are handcrafted lampies from Purple Cobwebs, lovely subtle colours - they would work well with Chris's glass beads, I feel. Your lamp working ability is fantastic. The individual pic - this stunning little lot are from Cherry Obsidia. there are a variety of purple beads, and three bright lampies that Dee has made - delightful. Thanks Dee, like Purple Cobwebs, your lamp working also is amazing. thanks everyone for taking part. xxx

    thank you Maggie jay

    Just to point out ...the bracelet is from Bahrain Susie, not from me! ;-) Glad you like it. x
  5. Here is the delightful bracelet I got in the October swap. All the makes were lovely and i would have been happy with any of them. So it was a random choice, but I love it. Esp those little dangle charm chains, MT, so cute. And brill colours - rather unusual for me as I'm a silver person. Thanks also for the beautiful card of Ode to Autumn which was your inspiration. Thank you so much for taking the time to select beads and create this little beauty. xx
