Stone Center and a Few Updates

The last couple of days I've been crocheting a turtle. I'm 2/3 through and I'm hoping to finish her today!

I also completed a necklace last week that I will post later.

Today I'm going to a Stone Center to look for rocks and stones to use in my necklaces. I hope I will find some good pieces! I will update when I've been there, what I've bought, what I'm planning and when I've made the necklaces.

Have a good day!

Why Not Roll a Ball in Them?

The other day I was making a pair of earrings. I was going to paint a pair of polystyrene balls and hang beads from them. The hanging of beads failed. I glued beads on them instead. This is not one of the earrings, I will post them later, this is a polystyrene ball covered in all the left-over beads. Yes, off course I could have used them for something useful... but when you've got a handful of already glue-covered beads, why not roll a ball in them? 

Ball bead-covering is great to clear your mind! (It's also great to fiddle with) 
Try it today!

Colourful, Creative Rings

I've been on a ring craze lately. I love wearing them, and better yet; making them! Here are some rings I've recently made.

This first ring is a doughnut I've made out of polymer clay

This second ring is a ring I was inspired to make by a friend. She challenged me to make a ring that looked like a cassette. I accepted, and personally I think it turned out pretty good. I made it using Perler Beads. This example is yellow with purple centre points. I have also made them in various colours.

This last ring is a blue flower. I got the flower with some beads for my birthday and I just had to make a ring out of it!

Rings can brighten up your wardrobe, mood and days. I have not made rings before, but this craze has inspired me to create lots of beautiful rings. Follow the blog as there is much more to come!
