New stuff

It's so cold outside, we've been dreaming of the beach and Mum and I came up with this little duo in the studio today and thought I'd pop it on here before it goes in our website shop.
Happy new year!!

I've spotted something very exciting....

I know - two posts in one day must mean Bronny is a very bored girl! Well in my defence I've now run out of Christmas chocolates so browsing the jewellery blogs is a guilt free alternative.

I've found this website that I really wanted to share with you as I think the stuff she makes is brilliant. I've already invested in a tank of resin to have a go myself. Enjoy!

Beads I want to eat

Hello. It's Bronny, Victoria's daughter and I've sneaked into her studio today to make a few bits and bobs after I saw that she still hasn't made something marvellous using the gorgeous citrine beads we bought together in Norwich. A crime indeed, they look good enough to eat!
I've come up with this chunky necklace and bracelet set which, to my relief, Mum approves of. It will be going on the mypearlbox website, along with some other new stuff early in 2010 so look out for it.
We've been making a lot of chunkier stuff since the discoverey of the Aladdins cave-esque bead shop near my house. It's like climbing the staircase to beaders heaven as the wonderful lady there spends hours helping us choose our bowl fulls of goodies telling us of her travels to source them. Is it just me or do these sorts of places make other people regress to being 6 and become practically paralysed by the sight of sparkles, natural and dyed colours and miniture works of art that flow down the the walls around you?! I am yet to tell a single non-crafty type who hasn't responded to my squeals of delight with a dissaproving look and words to the the effect that my life may be more sheltered than a 'normal' 27 year old single girl.
Anyway, roll on 2010 may it be a successful and happy year for all.
