When I ran my giveaway, one of the prizes was a surprise for the winner. Janey of Is That You Darling won and told me her favourite colour is purple. In her comment on the giveaway she mentioned that she’d never tried jewellery making, so I decided to make her some purple jewellery. Luckily I had some purple wire and beads, so I put this together:


I must admit taking photos late at night on a phone never gets the best results, so this is actually Janey’s photo from a post on all her recent wins (she’s a lucky lady!). Hopefully she won’t mind! I didn’t post about it earlier as I wanted it to be a surprise.

It looks as though she has plans for some of the buttons she won. I can’t wait to see the bracelet she wants to make.



Last week I found I had 50 followers and decided to have my first ever giveaway. I now have a few more followers. I’m going to send a surprise to whoever wins the giveaway as well as the items below:


1m of five different ribbons

An assortment of other beads

And finally:


A selection of jewellery findings including wire, earring hooks, headpins, ring bases, lobster clasps and more.
