Sick in bed...

This week I've got Mastitis so have been lying in bed. Luckily my mum can look after Bebe while I am resting. Bebe is getting heavier and heavier, lifting her up when I am ill is hard work. However I managed to make a piece of jewellery this week. A necklace made by fresh water pearls in different size and clear crystals. Hope you like it.

My mil is down to visit so haven't updated my blog last week. This week I managed to make a necklace using lots of blue colour. I think it is fun to name your craft work so from now on i am going to name all my craft work. just likes roses they all have a very feminine name.I am going to call this necklace 'ocean deep'. I have handmade a toggle clasp to go with it. It is my first time making one and it seems a little big compare to the necklace. The peyote stitch can be quite addicted though.

Where has this week gone?

This week has gone so quickly. In fact too quickly it seemed I didn't have enough time to finish what I wanted to do. Bebe has started her speration anxiety and would not leave me out of her sight. Even stepping out from the front room to the kitchen she will have a big moan! To keep my jewellery making live I have to give up my sleep. I have sleep starvation already so this week my panda eyes have gone 10 times worst - sometimes I asked myself whether it is worth to give up my beauty sleep,or "beauty" all together to keep up my jewellery making but when I see the blog stat that is increasing. It gives me energy to carry on. So this week I managed to make two necklaces.

The first one is a pearl necklace that I've made using lavender and deep purple Swarovski glass pearl. Thank you my hubby to help me to take these lovely photos!

The second one is an unfinished necklace using crystal beads - it has not been finished yet as I still haven't figure out out what I should do with the end part? Any Idea? In the picture you can only see the bottom part.
