Jonsson’s Jewellers

Yesterday I went down to the local Hobbycraft to see if anything caught my eye. This time it was the jewellery section, with it’s many sparkling beads and different clasps. I was instantly inspired, and collected a bit too many things in my basket. Some woman even came up asking if I could help her as I looked like I knew what I was doing! I had to tell her the truth, that I was really as lost as her, but figured it couldn’t be as hard as it looked.
When I got back I instantly knew what I wanted to make, which was a long galaxy inspired necklace with these blue sparkling beads and amazing gun metal star beads. I set to work with my new tools and was quite pleased with the results.

I then gave bracelets a go. I am really happy with my double chain shooting star bracelet. It hangs really nicely and doesn’t look too homemade, which was my main concern when starting off.

I also made a very simple red coral bracelet which works very nicely with a summer tan and a plain bikini. Now if I ever actually get a tan or venture out in a bikini is a whole other story!
