I finally got a ring mandrel, so I just HAD to try out a ring.......
And some hooped earrings...................... put some of those littler stone beads to good use!
Well, perhaps tomorrow I'll get back to my pendants. There's this new ornate ring idea I have though.............

These are all prototypes, and some won't get further than that. But I'm hoping to get a heap up in this style up and running for the BiDM. Gosh, so close!

Today was granola day. Homemade granola, a la Nigella.
Mmmm, golden syrup, almonds, hazelnuts, honey, oats, seeds - soooo much delicious crunchy goodness.
Great for snackies by the handful. And with yoghurt. And on icecream. And I suppose you could use it as intended for breakfast cereal, but I can't say that I've ever tried.
I think I hear some calling me now.
Have you entered my giveaway yet?

The walking lillies are flowering in abundance. Their flowers only last one day, so I've got to get out each day to catch them.The bromeliads actually have water in their core. And teeny tiny flower buds ready to rise.The worms are munching their little butts off in the worm farm.Mr Frog is keeping a close eye on the garlic chives, which are green instead of wilty and pale.And his little monster (I think it's a spider, I wasn't going to poke it to find out, it's fierce-looking) has taken up residence in the roses. Rain makes everything good.

This unfinished pair are with the correct sized wire - I think I prefer the bigger square gauge, myself.And the pair on the left are designed by silverknuten from this tutorial. I don't plan to make any more of these, I just wasn't fussed by my end result. The pair on the right were an experiment. Not sure about them either.I'm also playing around with my market table for the next Handmade Expo. Lots to do, lots to do.Oh, oh, before I finish up, a creature strange is having a giveaway of one of her fabulous new iphone holders. They are in gorgeous colours and materials, I really love her style. Pop on over to her blog and have a look.
