Back, after a long stint away

 Short style necklace made with ocean glass beads, turquoise gemstones, metal beads, wooden beads and the wonderful paua shell which can only be found in the coastal waters off New Zealand.
It is said to bring the wearer good luck.
Oh, you can also wear it as a bracelet...just saying :-)

New goodies

I've just been to New Zealand.
They have the most beautiful shells there, the Paua shell.
My imagination is running wild.
Here's a long necklace made with the paua shell, wooden beads, Turquoise, Amethyst and crystals.
For the Bohemian Chic!

The joyous Hallelujah!

Long necklace made with glass beads, Aventurine gem stones which is a healer of heart, mind and soul, Turquoise gem stones which is a great protective stone, quartz crystals, -probably the most powerful, multi-functional healing stone we have on earth, Rudraksha beads which evokes power in your body to help fight disease, used since Ancient time for improving spiritual knowledge, courage, self discipline and self confidence and the innocent Daisy charm symbolising erm...innocence, purity and love. All in all a pretty protective necklace.

Long necklaces

I said it before and I say it again:
Long necklaces are my favourite necklaces to wear.

You just throw them over your head and off you go.

You can even wear them back to front.

The process

 So I love beads and I love stringing them together making necklaces.
My creative process normally consists of a very large cup of tea (with sugar) and very soon after I start stringing the beads.
Very, very rarely does it end up how I pictured it in my mind.
More often I surprise myself with the end result
but I have fun with every single piece.
As all of my necklaces is one of a kind more often than not I find it really hard to part with them.
This little number is made with Amethyst, Quartz crystals, wooden beads and Turquoise gem stones.

Blue shell necklace

I love this blue colour.
So much so I made a three strand necklace with the gorgeous blue shells.
Fit for a mermaid!

Mad for tassels

I like the kind of necklaces you can just throw over you head.
They will spruce up any outfit.

I am also mad about tassels and Rudraksha beads. Here are two longish necklaces I made this last week.
