Two new pieces

Hi there, I've been playing again and created two new pieces. The first is a Swarovski crystal version of my red Baroca Bead necklace. I absolutely love this necklace, I can wear it with anything.

This second piece is a bracelet I've made for my mother-in-law. It's her birthday soon and she absolutely loves butterflies and purple.

My newest pieces

So, didn't I say I was going to add piccies of my new pieces??? Yep, I did, so here they are.

My first go at beading around a Swarovski Rivoli. This Rivoli is 18mm in size. Took me a few goes to get it, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

This next piece is my version of a Baroca Bead. Love it and I've since make a clear crystal version. I'll pop a piccie up when I take one.

Last, but not least, is a beaded bead bracelet (pattern in the latest B&B mag). Again, I have made this using clear crystals, but have added teal coloured swaro bicones as well. And yes, that's my arm... :)

Some of my piccies as promised

Here are some of my earlier works. We have a crochet necklace, some big bold hoop earrings, a woven bracelet and a simple linked necklace. These are some of my favs :)

Hi there :)

Hi everyone, this is my first post on my new Blogger site - Carrie's Blog Place (

I'm a beader, that is, I make jewellery primarily using beads but do venture into chain and polymer clay. However, my passion is beads. In this blog I will post pictures of my latest creations, but to get us started I'll post some random pics of my previous works.

I would love to hear what you think, so please feel free to post comments.

Speak soon!
