Swingy pearl pull through earrings

I love these earrings. Lots of swing and movement. I used cream swarovski pearls and attached to fine sterling silver chain and attached to a sterling silver ear stud post for a classic look.

Lovely for a romantic meal out or wedding occasion and a bit unusual with the pull through style.


Beautiful pink rose swarovski crystal dainty and feminine pendant. Romantic looking for summer time. The silver delica beads blend with the rose pink crystals for a very pretty looking piece of jewellery.

I plan to make several of these pendants using different coloured crystals. This one is in our Etsy shop at the moment. Lots of variations could be made with bigger pendants and more beads, i have done a pearl pendant like this which would be lovely for weddings.

Turquoise howlite woven pendant

New to my folksy shop at £14.00 a very pretty feminine vibrant turquoise howlite gemstone pendant.

I have woven this pendant with 4mm turquoise howlite beads and used silver delica beads in between to create this open circle gemstone pendant and hung on an 18" sterling silver chain.

I love turquoise and silver for summer it goes with everything. This pendant is about 1" in diameter so dainty and wearable for everyday.

How to make fridge magnets with badge machine

So, i thought i would share with you how i make my fab fabric fridge magnets. I use a badge machine which is a 58mm machine for keychains,bottle openers,pocket mirrors,magnets or badges all in that size. You can purchase badge machines in different sizes for different projects. The components i.e pocket mirrors,badges etc i order when i run out.

You do get free instructions with it and can download badge templates in different sizes too as you could use digital collage sheets in a particular size 2.25 for 58mm machine to make badges for instance. You can purchase these on Etsy or other sites. I use fabric mostly as it has a different look to it and there are gorgeous fabrics around.

Swarovski rivoli woven pendant

I had forgotten i made this swarovski rivoli pendant a while back and it took me ages so i only ever made one. I have just put it into our Folksy shop today. Very sparkly and glittery and a dramatic showpiece.
