Another heart bead giveaway

I am having a giveaway on my Facebook page 

Here the bead that's up for grabs!

It has sparkling inclusions of dichroic stringer and a wrap of silvered ivory with little spots of fine silver.  The winner can choose whether they'd like it made into a pendant or not.

Drawing will take place on 15th March. All you need to do is head over to my FB page, like it and post a comment in the giveaway thread.  Entries on FB only this time.

Good luck!

Another hare to share

I can't resist showing off more of my husband's carving.  This leaping hare was carved into a piece of oak floorboard - an offcut he had.

I love it and hope you do, too.  One thing you won't be able to appreciate is how gorgeously tactile it is.  It's beautifully smooth and very strokeable.
He is still undecided about whether to gild the moon - we've looked at silver leaf, but gold leaf looks even better - a wonderful harvest moon glow.

Anyway - enough wittering on from me, here it is!

New Year - time for some beads!

Yep, 2013 - bring it on!

I am a terribly lazy blogger and I do thank all of you who drop by to see if I've posted, it's strangely heart-warming to find I have had visitors from all over the world.  I will endeavour to post more often, but I'm not making any promises! *wink*

Want to see some beads? I am in love with a heart press I bought from a forum friend last year.
It's a Bavarian Beads press, and out of the four heart presses I now own (greedy sod!) it's fast become my favourite.

December 2012 was a tough month peronally for me, even more so as I didn't get to make many beads!  So showing these will spur me on to make more and get my Etsy shop stocked up again.

Thank you for visiting with me, may 2013 bring you peace, happiness and good health!
