So I decided to have a go at wire work.. I have quite a collection of crystals kicking about so if I can master wire wrapping I can incorporate them in to quite a lot of pieces…

I worked with my new coral stash first..

I wore this to work yesterday & received quite a few positive comments & a possible commission!

Then I had a go with a thicker wire & some carnelian, in a different style…

I stabbed my fingers with the wire making this one so decided to finish off a wooly creation that I still had by sewing on some tiny red coral chips…

1) Elsie’s Treasure Map on a palette, so cute! 2) Lupin’s felt circles addiction, 3) Taylor Swift’s music. It’s an American teenage girl singing country & I’m a 30-something British woman but….I love it & I can’t help it! 4) Kate Mosse’s Labyrinth, I’ve just started reading it, I picked up a hardback illustrated copy from the market for £4.50! 5) Salad… I cannot stop eating it. Really truly, it’s one of my favourite foods right now!

To find Lupin go to http://lupin.etsy.com

Off to make lunch (salad!) so have a great afternoon guys 😉
