I love rainbows, they're just magical. This rainbow in the field next to my house inspired me to make these gorgeous 'Harlequin' beads. I've added these and lots of other beads to Ebay, so if you're interested, pop over and have a look.

Monday, 13 April 2009 beads!

Now I've finally got my new workshop set up (in the form of a caravan!), I have been busy making loads of beads...and have I missed it! I have made a couple of the old favourites - moon beads. I just love making these, there are so many variations on the theme. All of my moon beads are named after moons in our solar system - this one is called 'Nereid', which is one of Neptune's moons.

I have also tried out a new style...spacey beads. I love these and have just listed them (and a few others) on ebay, so hopefully you'll like them too!

Sometimes I keep a bead for months before it 'tells' me what it wants to become. This is what happened with this moonscape bead. I made it several months ago, but wasn't happy with it until I decided to acid etch it, which has given it a lovely velvety texture. I left the moon shiny, so it really glows! After that, it was just a case of finding the right 'ingredients' to make it into a fabulous piece of jewellery. I've kept it simple, with only a tiny precious emerald bead and a moonstone with a silver star. It just makes me want to go and gaze at the full moon!

You can find this necklace, as well as some bracelets and earrings, on my website.

I'm in the process of messing around with the website, so don't be too surprised if it changes from one hour to the next...
