I Can't Believe It Took Me So Long!

Well, I’ve finally finished my first attempt at making jewellery.  It’s taken a few months to get to this point…and a few kicks up the backside, but I’m so pleased to have started.  Moving to a new country is a BIG thing and it’s so hard being away from my family and friends, so I’ve found myself focusing on meeting people and making friends for the past five months.  Now, I feel it’s time to start doing some of the other things I had planned to do over here, one of which is delve into this bead box and start creating.

So here it is - my first creation.  I wanted to design a statement piece that encompassed all the elements I love (except for studs, but they’ll feature soon, no doubt) leather, lace and beads. Most of the beads featured are from an old necklace my granny gave me, and it’s great to actually be using them finally.  The lace was sourced in Mysore, here in India, and the rest is a mixture of old and new. 



I had so much fun pulling this together and once I’d started, the ideas just kept flowing…so watch this space!
