My first beading experience

As well as being scared of sewing machines and dolls legs I was also a bit wary of beading wire and prefered to stick to chains.
I did a bit of research and then spent spent spent.
So far this is what I've done.......

The bracelet is Smokey Quartz and silver and the necklace is Garnet and Carnelian. Its actually really relaxing to do. All I need now is for someone to volunteer to take the mini beasts for the day so I can spend some real time doing it.

I've also submitted the photo I took of the candy cables to the Guardian newspaper. They're doing a section called "In pictures" and they change the theme of it. The next theme they have asked for is "symmetry". I think the prize is some sort of camera. So fingers crossed!

Good luck with the pic competition - I love that photo, but it makes me want to go and make myself sick with sweets!!!

The bracelet and necklace both look great - well done!

I love smokey quartz but have managed to restrain myself from buying any....I feel it's only a matter of time though ! Lovely beading too, see wire isn't so scary!
