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.
~Thomas Hardy

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.

It sounds strange but somedays the beads just talk to you, they already know what they want to be. So finally I have made them into a bracelet and a pair of earrings. I hope you like them? I certainly do.

They are available now over in my Folksy shop.

The other day one of the mums from school popped over to buy some jewellery for a good friend of hers who had a special birthday. Over a cuppa and a good natter this is what we designed between us. It's not what she had in mind when she walked through the door, but often that is how good designs materialise.

Beautiful lentil beads by Izzy Anderson, with large Hilltribe silver lentil beads faceted onyx and irridescent czech glass thin rondelles. All finshed with a startburst focal toggle clasp.
The bracelet has arrived safely with it's new owner and she says she is very pleased with her special birthday pressie. I hope you like it too.
