No laughing please

 Have been playing at trying to do some jewelry, above is my first attempt which I am not happy with at all, like the style but not my mix of beads.
Below is my second attempt which I like better and must admit was chuffed to make the big bobbley bead at the bottom, I am learning too thread with wire as quite like the effect
 Below is my second and third attempt on a loom, I am pleased with these but must learn how to finish them off neater, does anyone out there know how to do it please. Would love to hear from you if you do
 These 2 below are done on memory wire which really are easy to do as you just have to thread the beads on
 The two below, well one is adding charms on a chain which is not bad and do like the other one as made beaded leaves and put a piece of jade between. Sorry the photo isn't very good, the beaded bracelet is pink and lilac
 The next one below is for my Sue as she loves butterfly's so is is black glass bead triangles with butterfly beads between
 The last one below have made for a raffle as we need to raise some money for limos to give some special young adults a treat, have made this one with opal chips and opalite beads and the blue stones are semi precious but forgot what they are called, typical of me. Have put a real silver catch on and made some earnings to go with it with silver wires, just hope they think it is OK for the raffle. Whew !!!!!! that is the longest post I think I have ever done. Hope you enjoy looking

This and that

 Sorry not posted for a while Folks, here are a couple of pieces I have made recently. Firstly I was asked to make this album by my daughter in law for a new baby, she picked the paper for the covers. Anyhow am pleased to say she loves it

I love this rabbit and this Artistic diva on the card above, made the card above for Jo for her Birthday, thought this would suit her as she is very artistic, always creating something, I hope she liked it. The rabbit one went to another friend, we seem to have quite a few birthdays this month. Will try and upload some more soon. Thank you for looking

Some thing a little different

 I have been doing a little voluntary work with some young adults with learning difficulties. Anyhow the wanted to do some scrap-booking, so I said you can make your own. Well I cut them out ready for them but they put them together and decorated the fronts, one or two needed a little help but most done nearly all the work themselves. Didn't they do well, they were so proud when they finished and I was really proud of them too. It just goes to show what can be achieved with a little encouragement. We are now busy decorating the pages, must admit it is fun seeing what they want in, we are doing a mixture of what they love most and photo's
