I made my own!!!

So today I finally sat down and did a wee bit of work and I'm very happy to say I am no longer at the whim and mercy of suppliers but can now make my very own pendants...WOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!

The pendants are all 100% made by me, including the findings.
Everything is sterling silver, with the exception of the stringing wire which is nylon coated stainless steel...but the clasps etc on the cord will all be sterling silver.

Now just to give the "web dev" a poke in the ribs and hopefully we'll have the website up and running properly in the next few millennia :P

And I have to sit down and do the boring stuff like the costings...but while I'm busy with that you can take a peek at what I'm up to!

The disc cutter!
And some of the discs (& a wee moon) ready for stamping
Sterling silver jumprings
And what my initial charms turned out like.
The discs are 12.5mm and are slighly cupped

Just a little something

I've been busy catching up with the kids and getting involved in all the Christmas & New Years festivities so I haven't really had as much time as I though to experiment with my goodies over the holidays.

I did however get that chance to make a little something for a friend who's an old work colleague...from back in the days of yore when I was still a working lass :)

I stamped, filed, shaped and polished the washer myself...so got a little chance to test out some tools :)

We've gone dotty!!!

While I was so busy I didn't know if I was coming or going, I discovered the cupboard doors had joined me by going completely dotty!
And on that note, I know I should be working, there is so much to do, but I think instead I'm going to try do some baking with my kids...they've barely seen me the last few weeks and I have some making up to do!

A friend commissioned a doll for her niece from me, and I had quite a bit of fun trying to decide exactly how I was going to make her, although it took me far too long. I'm just glad I did get her finished in time for Christmas!

And here she is, I do hope her new friend likes her!

So this week has seen the last of the already made pendants I bought go on out

And I finally found 5 minutes to try out my new equipment to make my own pendant for a very patient friend of mine who has been waiting for months now... sorry and I hope your guys are happy with their pendants!
And then tonight is book club, and not only is it book club but it's CHRISTMAS PARTY BOOK CLUB!!!
I am so excited, pretty much all my favorite things are going to be together, books, wine, champagne, good company, good food and of course crackers and presents...YAY!!!

And in the spirit of Christmas I decided to make a little something for everyone in our little club...sometimes that one night out a month keeps me sane, so thanks guys and have a fab Christmas!

Wine Charms!

So amongst the flurry of keyrings I got an order for something I've been wanting to work on for a while but haven't had much chance. A few months ago I made one or 2 samples but never had a chance to share them.

So thanks for giving me the chance to make some and I hope the recipients like them and get good use out of them!
