The above is a necklace made with gold-plated wire and three sorts of AB beads - small, medium green and large clear vintage. The pendant is a cluster of beads hung on the wire and sparkles in the light like a disco ball. I found this really hard to photograph - out in the sunshine the sparkles confused the camera, inside the electric light doesn't pick up the sparkles - you'll just have to take my word for it, it's yummy! £16 + P&P
This is a bracelet made with five strands of soft grey leather thong (I bought an enormous reel of this in Athens, hoping the neutral colour would go with most beads & charms) bound at the ends with silver wire. Hung on the strands are various little beads and charms which have free movement up and down the thong. I saw this sort of design in Athens but have made it in my own way - marine themed rather than with the crystals I saw there. £7 + P&P

Had a bit of an idea for the mini-bear - he deserves a bit more care than being a key-ring, so he is going to be made into a brooch.

Just got a parcel of wire in the post, but no Amigurumi book, so I guess it's jewellery for this weekend!

I like the idea of having a few strands of leather thong with various charms hanging from them.
