My poor Blog has been majorly neglected for a while now. So whilst catching up on everyone else's blogs I thought I should catch up on mine too.

I have been so inspired lately by all the beautiful work that I have seen on FB, Etsy, etc. That it seems that there is only a 20 minute break between finishing a project and starting a new one, and sometimes I have actually been stopping half way through a project so that I don't lose the idea.

I have been so very lucky in sales in my Etsy shop in the month of March, My tutorials are selling reasonably well, and I have sold several of my bracelets. I would really like to thank all my lovely FaceBook friends for showing me support and all their lovely comments on my work as I would be absolutely nowhere without them.

One of the cuffs that sold was my whimsical wishes cuff. This was inspired by the beautiful cabochon that I bought off Lyn Owens from silvermoonLyn on ArtFire.

I have bought several more of Lyn's Cabochons and am planning on some more cuffs including words very soon. To purchase your own gorgeous OOAK Lyn Owen's dichroic cabochon visit her ArtFire shop at

I am thrilled that the German Magazine Perlen Poesie has asked me to do a tutorial for their September Issue and that is the project that I am working on at the moment.

April is Also Autism Awareness Month. One of my Facebook friends Sharon Wagner (of Yadasi beads) has made some beautiful items to raise money for this cause. Sharon's son has Autism and my oldest daughters best friend (this week) has Autism also. I made a cuff that I have decided to donate the funds for this awesome cause, all proceeds of the sale of this cuff will go to

To see all the beautiful work created for this cause take a look at the Etsy shop

This is the cuff that I chose to donate the funds for Autism.

I would be so honoured if this cuff sold so that I could help do my part to raise awareness of Autism.

Until next time, have fun checking out the links, and Happy beading!!
