Valentine's Heart Swap

I recently took part in another Folksy swap, organised by Lisa of NoodleBubble. This time we were swapping hearts! I made this for Jacky of Jacksknits:
It's made from Fimo - pink underneath with slices of a white and translucent cane on top. And received this from Amy Macpherson of Macpherson's Miscellany:

How lucky to receive three gorgeous items - a brooch, a card and a bracelet! Thanks Amy! And thanks Lisa for organising another great swap.

Christals Creations

Way back in June I received a blog award from Fiona at Christals Creations. I never got around to sending the award on, but have been meaning to feature Fiona's Folksy shop for ages as a thank you, so here we are!

Fiona makes and sells gorgeous jewellery and tiaras. She's experimented with silver, beads and crystals and many beautiful pieces can be bought on Folksy.

Here are a few of my favourites...

First is this lovely butterfly bracelet. I love yellow and butterflies!

These earrings are made from swarovski crystals. I love the shape of them as well as the name - 'Pink Passion'!

And lastly are these copper and green earrings, made from twisted wire and seed beads. I love the colours and the twisty bit!

Make sure you go and have a look at Fiona's shop at the rest of her creations!
