A Happy New Year to you all....

Firstly, I hope all of you out there in Blogland have a happy, healthy and productive New Year - may you get all that you are hoping for.

The above is a necklace that has been in my mind for weeks now, since first seeing these fabulous vintage zebra charms from My Vintage Charms and since being given the very special hand-made zebra patterned glass bead by Laura Sparling. Check out Laura's work, she is one very talented lady! It's a very simple piece as I feel the bead and charm should be left to speak for themselves, so I have hung them on gold-plated wire with black seed beads and the whole thing is just below choker length. If you feel you would like this for yourself, please contact me.

I was just playing with some of my new Greek beads after finishing the zebra necklace and came up with a little suede thong and ribbon necklace, using porcelain birds and soft blue wooden beads. These little birds are so cute and I can think of all sorts of ways to use them - earrings, I think next! This one is £12 + p&p

Have a good New Year's Eve - don't drink too, too much!

The Zebra necklace is fabulous - I love the way you've used my bead, Caroline.

Happy New Year!
