Again I came across these tucked in the back of a drawer where I had dropped them after going to my favourite Chinese Warehouse. What a find they are 1/2 inch discs of a cream coloured shell. They are so shiney, smooth and lovely to wear. The necklace is so simple. It just shows less is more.
Once again I am showing you one of the books from my library. This book is outstanding. I love Diane Fitzgerald's work. I have made a lot of thing out of this book.In fact before got the book I had a real dislike for peyote stitch but now that I understand it better I have no problem with it.

The red cubes are marbled with black. the chinese warehouse has been very good to me I find all sorts there. I buy them and they are deposited in the stash sometimes never to be seen again. Only joking ofcourse.
Here is a book from my library on beading. I have found this book really helpful. with the ilustrations and in giving me ideas.

This bracelet and necklace came from my stash yet again. I found the turquoise beads in a chinese warehouse here in Tenerife. The little black beads are small glass beads but the little black beads in the bracelet are black crystals again bought from the chinese warehouse.
I would like to bring this lovely book to your notice by
Kumiko Mizuno I had the chance to thumb through it and am hoping I get it for my birthday . If I dont it will not be for the want of dropping hints.

While thinking what I would like to make after the daisy bracelet I came across a string of these shell doughnuts. I could not think what to do with them and there sitting in the middle of my stash were these golden glass-pearls. Lightening flash what about puting them together. The pearls had been sitting in the stash for such a long time. the necklace is quite different.
