Hi All,

I have never tried this before so forgive me if it sucks lol!!!!

I don't feel as though i have done that much this week due to family problems!! I finished my first tutorial last Sunday which is for my elegant evenings purse. I'm quite proud of myself and actually found it really hard so kudos to all those who do tutorials regularly!!
You can get the tutorial for this in my etsy shop i wouldn't even really call it a tutorial except for the assembling the bag part, its really more me telling you the different stitches that i used to make this and how you can use these stitches to come up with your own design.
I am STILL making the white version of this bag although I haven't done any work to it this week.

I finished off and listed my beach love cuff. I learnt so much whilst making the bag (technique wise) and wanted to see how those techniques would look on a cuff and this is what i came up with.
I am actually really happy with how this turned out. :)

I also did a quick ring with this gorgeous assymetrical diamond cabochon that I bought off Ebay ages ago!!

I have been working on a Titanium Druzy cabochon Necklace with Russian spiral stitch and am really liking how its turning out at the moment. Will post pictures of that when i'm finished.

Anyway hope you all have a good weekend and happy beading till i see you again!!

Jo :)
