It's two of my friends birthdays soon and I will be making them some rings. I have to be careful not to say too much because they sometimes read this blog. I went online to pick up the supplies but of course I bought more stuff for myself too! Not too much but enough to feel a bit guilty! I bought myself the supplies to make the X's & O's bracelet from Brilliant Crystal Jewellery in the same colours as the middle bracelet pictured on p22. I don't usually follow colour combo's exactly but I really love this one, can't wait to make it!
I am a bit of a hippy at heart, although I am a bit to young to have been a flower child (I was a New Romantic as a teenager). I love the individuality and colourfulness of the arty, hippy style and like to express that love of colour in my jewellery and I seem to be increasingly drawn to nature as inspiration for my beadwork.
