Another Little Peek


I have been making some new necklaces instead of cards over the last week. I am finding it really hard to come up with Christmasy designs with my birds, so decided to gve my self a break and get making jewels!

I ordered some lovely new bits and they arrived the other day, so I have been working on what goes best with what. In the mean time here is a little peek at some other pieces that will be appearing in the shop over the next few days. I have a beautiful modle coming by this afternoon to let me photo them in real life. I did try my bo, but he just wasn't wearing them right!

This one below is going to be the first item in my Wedding section in the shop! And I am thinking sets too.

I haven't decided on the names for these creations yet, I am going to stick with girl's names so suggestions are welcome!

Things over at laurabailliedesigns2 are still in the planning, between making papery things for shops, girls nights and birthdays, I am not getting the time to photograph things and get them uploaded. But I am going to get there eventually! Sticking to the paper theme, I was given a little borrow of some beautiful books by Lorna, which I will photo tomorrow to share. They have really inspired my to get back to the drawing and painting, but I know maybe now is not the time. I love being recommended books by other people, especially art books. "Arthur Rackham" by James Hamilton has given me so many ideas, so thanks L! Head over to her shop, she is having her first sale)

What is the best book you have been recommended lately?

I don't know that anyone has recommended me a book in sometime now!

Sigh.

Well, I guess I just need to hit the library on my own.

Hope you've had a great week!

I really love the first necklace in your post especially - it is beautiful! I think that all of your necklaces will suit girl's names - I would love to wear a necklace called Aurora or Emily or Scarlet or Ruby!

Arthur Rackham has some truly amazing artworks! I love his style, old fashioned and whimsical!

I particularly LOVE the last necklace in your bunch!

the flowers on the necklaces are wonderful! the necklaces look stylish and lovely.

The last good recommendation was the book "The little black book of style" by Nina Garcia. I had never, ever read a book about style but this one is quite good.

The funny thing is, this was a recommendation that I read on a journal while I was in Scotland! yay!

Lovely, and I like the idea of girls names for them

What about some Scottish names (fellow Paisley Buddy) Mara and Flora??
