Since starting this blog I feel as if I wanted to tell people a bit about me rather than just show you things I’ve made. (don’t worry if your not interested in anything about me, I do still have something to show you – just skip this next bit!)
So… I’m Kate, I’m 24 years old and live with my parents, my boyfriend of 4 and a bit years Adam and our Jack Russell, Flo (she’s super cute- as you can see)
I work in the beautiful city of Cambridge for an Insurance Company- might sound a bit dull but I really enjoy it. As you’ve probably guessed in my spare time I like making things! I’ll try my hand at anything really- I’m not always very good at a lot of things but I still give it ago. I love music- I find I can’t craft with out something to sing along to! I also like reading and going to the cinema, also I like nothing better than sitting in the sunshine enjoying a nice cold glass of Pinot!
Ok so enough about me… today I want to show you one of my jewellery pieces I made. I especially love these because green is my most favourite colour. Anyway, I made the necklace using the base of a charm bracelet but cut the toggles off and added links for the suede thong. I absolutely love all these different shades of green- and the best bit is I used up a lot of odd beads I had left over from other things.
I liked it so much I had to make a matching bracelet. I also love charm bracelets for the sound they make, Adam jokes that when I wear mine he can always hear me coming!! Most of these gorgeous beads were bought from Bijoux Beads – they have one of the best selections of beads which you can either buy singularly or in packs, so they are great for any make. I also had to use some of my favourite Swarovski Crystals to give it extra sparkle. This necklace is such a great focal piece and so versatile you could wear it day or night!
