    Display solution

    Just thought i'd share my idea with you all, i have been struggling for ideas on how to disply some of my cheaper necklaces at an up coming fayre, i didn't want to have to take up precious table top space as i want to display my busts with my better jewellery on and i didn't want it to look cramped and messy, Floor standing diplays are very expensive and out of my price range so i come up with the idea of using an artists easel with a cork notice board (which i think i will cover with fabric) on it. i found an easel in the works book shop for just £7.99 and i have to say it works really well. i will up load some pics when i go to the fayre to show you all how it looks. pam x
  9. stunning entries from everyone !! Hennie, i love that snail he's so cute

    Wedding Challenge (closing date 30th June)

    gorgeous entries, i too am glad i'm not judging this one !! here's my entry. It's a set intended for the bride to wear on her special day. i have used rose quartz as this is said to be a true love stone (amongst other things) and fire polished cystals as i think they have such a lovely sparkle to them
  15. some great entries here, especially love the ladybird lampwork beads and the cake looks very scrummy !! here's my entry, it's my first go at this style of charm bracelet and i love it so much i have been wearing every day since making it a couple of weeks ago

    Question about wire

    i don't really use wire but i have read somewhere that if you put tape (can't remember if it was masking tape or electrical tape) around the jaws of the pliers that this helps prevent scratching, hope this hass helped pam x
