New Goodies

Well, I went a little crazy last week.  I decided it was time for some more supplies, and so did a little bit of ordering online and on Etsy.  This week has been a little bit like christmas, and I thought I would share my new goodies.  The first came from Windspirit.  10mm and 6mm Candy Jade round gemstone beads, Surgical Steel earwires, beautiful twisted copper wire, some oxidized copper wire and chain.

I was thrilled with them, and can’t wait to start using them!

The next came from SirenGems.  Stunning 4mm faceted Smokey Quartz Rondelles.  I was dying to buy more of their beautiful beads, however was trying to be restrained.  These are so lovely though, and the seller was the sweetest person!  The photo isn’t great, as I didn’t bother with my light tent… oopsie!

The next lot came from ArtTess.  Another lovely seller, who was so obliging, and helpful!  In this package came 3 pale Rose Quartz focal teardrops, 3 Rose Quartz focal teardrops, 3 Sparkling Quartz focal teardrops and 3 Smokey Quartz focal teardrops.  I also got a bag with 8 double drilled Amethyst beads, 8 double drilled Smokey Quartz beads. 8 double drilled Rose Quartz beads, and 2 double drilled Sparkling Quartz beads as a freebie – Yay!

I also bought a cool ring kit with the pieces and instructions – such a good idea if you like to learn new techniques!

Last but not least, I got some new tools!  Some Crimping Pliers, Nylon Jaw Pliers, a Bead Reamer and Stainless Steel Bench Block.

I have been too tired to use any of them yet, but can’t wait to get started on some projects I have in mind! 😀  Hubby and I went to our local craft market yesterday, and I had such a great time!  The sellers were all so nice, and I stopped to chat with almost every one of them (even though hubby tried steering me away from some :-p)  I already can’t wait to go again next month.

Don’t forget, I am offering 15% off everything in my madeit and facebook stores until mothers’ day if you mention MOTHER at checkout.

  1. Wowzers!!! That is like Christmas!
    Looks like you have lots of great goodies there, wishing you lots of energy to get you started and I can’t wait to see your creations. Well done!

  2. Hi Ros, Hope this finds you well. I’ve just discovered your blog through… Actually, I’ve been wandering around a fair bit and don’t exactly know how I wound up here. But, what I wanted to tell you is that your jewellery is beautiful! So interesting with the way you use wire like the tendrils on a vine! Fantastic! You definitely have a knack for it.
    Good luck with your pregnancy: (you should be hitting your stride a little better very soon) and best of luck with your jewellery design as well. ta, Deb

    • Thank you Deb, what lovely comments! I love gardening and draw a lot of inspiration from trees and plants. It is great to meet you, and I hope you enjoy my blog (when I get back to it :-p) Thank you for your wishes, it all helps!

  3. Hi again Ros, Just realized (too late) that yours is not a simple pregnancy. But, when I was last pregnant, eons ago, I found that always having a variety of fresh fruit handy kept morning sickness at bay… Just having something in the tummy to keep all of those extra hormones dilute seemed to help immensely. Hope this is of help to you as well, Deb

    • Thanks for your advice! It does seem to help when I eat quite regularly. It also helps a lot when my wonderful husband brings me something to eat first thing in the morning. I am very lucky!! 😀 If you have any recommendations of other snacks, I would love to hear them!
