When I set out for Lyonesse,
A hundred miles away,
The rime was on the spray,
And starlight lit my lonesomeness,
As I set out for Lyonesse,
A hundred miles away.
Okay so I have had these beads by Rachel Dawes in my stash for ages, but from the day they arrived they were going to be Lyonesse and they were going ot be teamed with amethyst and freshwater pearls.

Where are they going? Reading Children's festival this weekend.
A good friend of mine is running the Reading Mencap stall at the Meadow Madness, Christchurch meadows from 11-4pm. My hairclips, new range of rings and wooden jewellery making kits will be on her stand for sale. You can also pop by for some fantastic story telling by local author Cathy MacLennan - my son adores her chicky chicky chook chook book.
You can find Reading Mencap on twitter and facebook.
If you do go to the children's festival have a fantastic time.

I am really pleased with the pendant which features a wave of handwired aventurine rondelles dangling from the lampwork focal. The pendant comes with either a 16inch or 18inch silver curb chain. All are available over in my folksy shop. I hope you like them.

Where have I been? well last November I was looking like this....and that was two weeks before I had my second child another boy.
Thankfully they did a c-section as giving birth to my first wasn't great, he got stuck in my pelvis coming out amoungst other things. He was 8lb 3 and this one....well a good 10lb 6 or if you do the conversion correctly nearer to 10lb 7. Poor love, they even had to use forceps to get him out despite the c-section.
Anyway, my little man is now 13 weeks old, today to be precise and we are finding our feet. It is interesting to say the least getting them both ready and out the door for 8.30 for the school run. Even though I am a routine type person, he doesn't have a routine and I am feeding him what he wants when he wants and this is causing a few issues as I have to top him up everynow and again so we can do this with my eldest but we are getting there. Compared with his brother who at this age was downing 8oz bottle of hungry baby formula every 4 hrs on the dot he isn't so bothered about his milk and is causing me a bit of brain ache...but we are working it out slowly.
Enough about the baby, more importantly Beady Pool news.
My website is closed at the moment as I am having difficulties finding the time to update it but my jewellery is still for sale over on Folksy. I am also trying to slowly tidy through my bead stash so I am selling some of my beads which don't suit my current designs in my other Folksy Shop. There are some great bargains to be had especially on the silver as I bought a fair bit of it before the prices increased - silver prices have skyrocketed in the past year.
Oh and I am doing the Henley Art Trail again this year - May 28th - 31st May 2011. Put the date in your diary and watch this space for more news.
