Florence and Your chance to win some Beads!


I had a short but sweet trip to Florence in honour of turning Forty! I think I'm over that number now - life just goes on in the end! We were blessed with fabulous weather - hard to believe it was October!

I was pleased to find the Bead Shop I had read about in Bead Magazine some months prior - The Beaded Lily . I had a very nice chat with one of the owners and Lampwork Beadmaker extraordinaire Tim James . Naturally I couldn't leave without a little stash of his lovely beads to use in my Jewellery!

I still haven't found the time to start making my own beads yet - watch this space!

Giveaway Time!

It's time I had a little giveaway - I'm going to share a few Beads from my Florence stash. If you would like to be the recipient of these lovely 4 beads (above) from The Beaded Lily in Florence then all you have to do is:

1. Become a follower of my blog
2. mention this giveaway in a social networking medium of your choice - e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Blogger

Leave a comment at the end of this blog and I will enter you into the draw. I will pull a name out of the proverbial hat next Sunday 18th October.


I have a couple of Thank you's to make. First to the wonderful Michele of By Your Side who featured one of my bracelets in her handmade goodness feature - Check out no.3 in Michele's picture!

Thank you also to Monica at My Funny Bunny who wrote a lovely little piece about me! I made this baby bag charm for her Mega Mother and Baby Giveaway. Keep an eye on her blog so you don't miss the details of that competition!

I haven't handed out any awards yet but if I did these two ladies would be first in the queue!

I have been added a few little things to my Misi shop so please take a look if you get the chance!

Next up for me is a lesson in Polymer Clay Beads. I look forward to sharing the results with you!

Here is one of my latest creations - this wire crochet necklace with Garnet beads
