new jewellery!

Hi everyone!

Over the holidays, I made lots of new jewellery and I decided to give you a preview of what's going to be up for sale in the coming days. Above is Mango Tango Fleur Necklace made with my handmade lampwork floral bead, Sterling silver, Swarovski crystals and a hand-dyed ribbon. I LOVE the colours.

This is Felicia, the beautiful deep honey-coloured kitty. Say hello! Felicia is handmade by me, etched for a velvety look and feel and I hand-wired her with Sterling silver, Swarovski crystals and a gorgeous hand-dyed ribbon. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the ribbon is stitched with sparkly golden thread!
Prince is a gorgeous sophisticat in shades of purple and aqua and I paired him with another hand-dyed string in similar colours. This necklace finishes with a beautiful Sterling silver 'S' clasp.

How do you take your tea? I like mine with milk and two sugars, thanks! I created this adorable bead to resemble a cup of milky tea. I hand-wired the bead into a pendant using all Sterling silver and it hangs from an 18" Sterling silver snake chain.

Could Bettina the kooky bunny be any cuter? I added my popular 'kooky' style eyes to my bunny bobble design and OMGoodness! How adorable! I wired Bettina into a pendant with Sterling silver and Swarovski crystals. She's perfect for spring and Easter!

I also made a few owl pendants including the lovely Amy pictured here. I created Amy with amethyst-coloured glass and gave her plenty of personality! She makes a super sweet pendant :)

Everything pictured above and MUCH more will be going up for sale on my various sites (I haven't quite decided yet.. I may just post a few things on each different site!) this week so remember to check back often.

Don't forget you can always sign up for my mailing list where you will receive notification whenever I list new items (no more than one notification per week, don't worry!) I also send a notification to my mailing list whenever I have a giveaway! Speaking of which, it's been quite a long time since I've had a giveaway. So, let me ask for a little feedback!

In a giveaway, would you like a bead or a finished piece of jewellery? Please leave your preference as a comment below and this will decide my next giveaway!

Hope you're all having a wonderful week :)

Love,
keiara
