Make a splash!

I've had a manic week - organising a couple of days of visitors at work and generally running around like a mentalist to catch up after - but within the madness I had a chance to enjoy a couple of hours out to take part in a jewellery workshop - I've never really done any jewellery making before and quite honestly I wanted to hate it... I can't possibly find time/money/room for another stash hungry hobby. But as is almost inevitable I REALLY enjoyed it! Damn.
I don't have a pic of the finished articles neatly displayed (necklace, earrings and bracelet) but did snap a quick close up for my 365.

If anyone can recommend any inspiring jewellery makers blogs Id appreciate it! Although my bank balance may not! Leave me a link in the comments section below.
I've come to the conclusion that one of the best value things you can pick up for a quid at this time of year is  lovely big bunch of daffs! These guys were just gagging to be my 365 pic earlier in the week and I love it so much it's also gracing my desktop at work - lovely to add a bit of cheer to a dreary day!

A quicky page to share today.. i've been told i'm rubbish at putting what I've used on my pages on this blog... promise i'll try harder... promise! This is mostly Cosmo Cricket - Girl Friday - taken from the March Studio Calico Kit - plus some Sassafras and AC Thickers alphas.

Hi Katy! It was lovely to meet you! You made a stunning jewellery set. I forgot my necklace & earrings inside the findings box. Loved your demo. You're fantastic! Your dog is so cute! I'm adding your blog to my favorites. Have a lovely weekend!
