Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I have some jewellery and a couple of keys I wanted to share. First up is a custom necklace I made for my friend Jen. The bead is my Painted Sky Tree Focal, the hammered ring is by George and the ribbon is by Diane. Jen chose the ribbon herself and I think it looks beautiful with the bead :)
This bracelet and earring set I made with my Simply Rossata bead set. I LOVE this glass and it looks so beautiful etched. I was planning on keeping this set for myself but I haven't decided yet ;)
I DID decide on this one though! This is my Spooky Skulls bracelet and it is mineminemine! I made the skulls in all different sizes for a real funky, chunky look. I'm nearly ready for Halloween now!
I also made some new keys :) I made 5 yesterday and 5 today.. the key kick continues! This is Unlock Blackberry Swirl. The bead is a pale pink base swirled with purple and then encased in purple. No, really, I don't like purple at all..! YUM :)
And this one is Unlock Mosaic Blossom. I really love this particular key. The bead is pale pink encased in pink with pastel frit decoration. I like the overall effect and might have to hide this key away ;)
Anyone doing fun stuff this weekend? We have friends coming over for dinner Sunday night and I'm really looking forward to that. I haven't decided what to bake for dessert yet. It's between brownies baked with chocolate chip cookie dough on top (yes, you read that right!) or banana cupcakes. Maybe I'll just do both! Banana cupcakes freeze well so I can always just throw the extras in the freezer :) And of course we'll be serving some homemade ice cream! I was so against the ice cream maker at first but OH was I wrong! We now have a freezer full of ice cream! Coffee, Bailey's, rhubarb, peach and strawberry are the current flavours. I am going to make some coconut this weekend hopefully!
Have a great weekend everyone :) I'll let you know how my baking experiments go ;)
