I’ve been a bit quiet of late….we’ve had severe flooding here – I was on holidays and travelling at the time and got stuck away from home.  Back now though and getting back into the swing of things.  Finished off this pair of earrings for a lovely customer…..think I might do some more in different colours.  What do you think??

Hello Fellow Bloggers and lovers of hole-y glassy baubles!!!  This is just a short post….yeah, right!   I want to show you some piccies of the beads I made earlier this month at Leah Fairbanks workshop at Wildlight Studios in Brisbane.  I had the BEST time in the world!!  Leah is a totally amazing teacher!!  If anyone is in two minds about doing a class with this super-uber talented lady – sign up NOW!!!  Leah brought her delightful friend and assistant, Susan, with her and they are two of the loveliest people you will ever meet.  A HUGE thank you also goes to Tracy of Wildlight Studios, for her generosity and kindness in making sure I had transport to and from the studio and also to my fellow classmates – who were a tremendous bunch of AWESOME people!!!  You guys ROCK!!

Just thought I would share with you a bracelet that I made late last year and have now just put it up for sale on my website.  There’s something very satisfying about starting out with some glass rods and sterling silver wire and creating a little piece of art right from scratch.  All of what you see in this bracelet has been created by me from raw materials – with the exception of the two sterling silver beads on either side of the focal and the little star charm on the dangle. I gotta say it’s really nice to see a finished product after having cut, shaped, balled, soldered, hammered and polished wire  into submission – not to mention the melting of glass into pretty beady things….lol.  Hope you like it!  For more info (inc price etc) click on “My Website” in the right hand column….. 🙂   BRACELET IS NOW SOLD!!! Thank you Alex!!

Hi guys!  Just wanted to share piccies of a bracelet that I made recently.  I’m quite proud of this – it’s almost completely hand fabricated by me, all except for the brass jump rings.  I’ve cut the links out of brass sheeting, then filed, hammered, shaped, drilled waxed and polished it.  I have used 2mm square brass wire and wrestled it into shape for the toggle and  links between the beads.  The lampwork beads have been made by me….of course…lol.  I’ve also attached a little handmade tag with the intials “SP” stamped on it – this stand for “Sandy Pandy” and means the piece of jewellery is truly OOAK (one of a kind).  It’s gorgeous to wear – so comfy!

It’s available on my website, along with all the relevant details – if you’re interested click on My Website on the right hand side……the link will take you straight there!  Hope you like it….

Footnote:-  Bracelet is now SOLD!
