*****************
On Saturday I promised there’d be pretty rocks pictures the next day, but stuff happened and I got a bit distracted. Anyway, here’s my latest batch of shiny things.

Whatever I have left-over after the school Christmas markets in a couple of weeks (Sunday Nov 22nd, come along if you’re in the area!) I will be putting up for sale, either through Esty or just on my blog and I’ll also be offering a few pieces for one of the NaBloPoMo winners to pick a prize from. I promised a necklace and earring set so I suppose I’d better start making matching earrings for some of these! I’ll update this post with my prize offerings after the markets.

    All lovely Mim. I'm wondering how long each piece takes you to make?

    The actual making is pretty quick but I tend to spend a lot of time mucking around with beads trying to come up with combinations that look good or rummaging through my supplies trying to find that thing that I know is in there somewhere. It probably averages out to almost an hour per necklace, half that for a bracelet and anything from 5 to 20 minutes for earrings (wire-wrapping stuff takes longer).

    I could cut down that time a lot if I had my stuff properly organised and a spot where I could keep it set out in a useable way. I need a craft room 😛

    The earrings are green on the web site. You made them white. I like the white much better. How would they look with a yellow gem at the top… like a star? Very good idea. I love it!

    I need a craft room too 🙂
    These look beautiful Mim – if I wore jewelery I'd be lining up to buy 😉 Particularly like the blue and white one.

    I've got a craft room …finally…and manage to swap from scrapbooking to cardmaking to beading with relative ease. The best part is not having to tidy up when inspiration leaves. All I have to do is shut the door and my project/s is/are ready to be resumed when inspiration comes again.

    Nice work. I've never done wire wrapping. I make only for me…not so much out of selfishness but just thinking that no one will ever be interested in my 'wares'. Good on you for doing what you do – making and selling and sharing.
