Some new pieces!

This week is a very exciting week for me as we have some relatives arriving from Wales. I'm so excited to be catching up with them and to do lots of much needed socialising :0). We are going away for a trip to the coast at some point so I plan to take a sketch book and my Sistahood sketch book with me and see if I can get some inspiration at the beach :0) fingers crossed, in the mean time I made a start on my last butterfly and have had some new deliveries of supplies so I tried out a few new pieces.

 First of all I received these cute earring trays with dome glass inserts. I had the perfect silver pendant tray so made this matching set with Japanese paper.

 Then the same day I received my order with this chain and findings. I ordered 16ft of this chain so I will be able to make many little beauties, this is my first every bracelet. It is made from polymer clay which was been varnished.
 Then I used the brass vintage style findings to make the bracelet. I love how the warm colours of the clay go with the vintage style findings. I attached a cute little bronze dragonfly charm with come lovely little red beads at the clasp.

 This is my current favourite pendant. Just love these colours and it sits on my new chain.
 Next up I made a cute matching set with my new vintage style setting. And a pair of vintage copper earring trays.

 Then yesterday my new antique brass lobster swivel clasps arrived and I made some key rings out of some clay.
The heart and flower designs are hand drawn on.
 I also received these cute little chair charms!

I think this is my favourite key ring.

So much to do so little time ;0) I've got lots more ideas for new pretties but wanted to share what I have been working on this week with you.

Beautiful! I love the depth the glass dome gives on the first items. I really like the black designs over the swirled clay. It is very striking!
