Midnight Dreams

Well that was a busy weekend! The good weather meant that it was perfect to be out and about. Saturday was spent with my brother Simon and his girlfriend Sarah for an afternoon visit to the pub followed by a mexican feast for four. And boy was it a feast!! If I say so myself I certainly cooked up a storm!

Sunday was spent out and about with my nephew James for his birthday. Having reached the great age of 5, I decided that it was time he and Isoent some serious fun time togetherand so we paid a visit to the Hamerton Wildlife park. What a brilliant day - and I was completely warn out! I dont know where he gets his energy.

Dispite a very busy time, I still managed to get my necklace finished for the Fire Mountain gems competition. This is the first time I have entered any of my work in a competition so it has been quite a challenge.

It's called Midnight Dreams and uses 6 fabulous Cats eye glass cabochons and 3 sapphire swarovski crystals to make an impressive focal piece.
The collar uses delica seed beads (#11) with alternating peyote stitch bands and strung loops to make a large 'chain'. I think this balances the weight of the front piece nicely.
So the pics and forms have all been popped in the post and are winging their way to the states and my fingers are firmly crossed.
