SWAROVSKI NECKLACE

I made this necklace on the weekend.

All components are from Chinatown in Singapore. Would love to be able to buy all these in Queensland. Looking forward to attacking the bead stores in Japan on my next trip.
Did everyone have a nice Valentine's Day? My husband gave me a pumpkin - obviously a pumpkin is what every woman wishes for as a gift! I guess I should be grateful. My son made me a card and enscribed, "your craft abilities are sooo creative and your food is just superb. You are the best mum in the world" Sweet!

MINIATURE WATER FEATURE

This was alot of fun to make. If you want to also make one, here's how.
You will need:
A small wooden bowl, such as a condiments bowl.
Tiny pebbles - you can find them at House and Garden.
Two part acrylic resin for the water - you can buy this from casting suppliers or Spotlight.
Grace resin clay to make the pebbles.
Lotus flower mould - you can buy it from Etsy.
Air drying paper clay such as Hearty to make the flower.

CHINESE CUSHION 2


BEADED PUDDING PARFAIT

These beads are really tiny!
But, the more fiddly the better as far as I'm concerned. I love the challenge.
