Restocking - Gemstone Donuts

Craft fairs and markets have been keeping my amazingly busy. I've been doing one of two most weekends as well as my other full times job. So busy that I've been noticing huge gaps in my inventory online, and at fairs i figured I ought to remedy that. I was down to my last 3 gemstone donut pendants when I sold my last amethyst one so sat down and started making them in a variety of gemstones.

On a Roll - Turquoise Multiway Necklace

Thought I'd show the turquoise necklace in the same style as the gold and brown commission.

Woah! Busy Busy! - Golden Brown Commission Finished

So busy lately! I've been booking craft fairs adn market stalls like they are going out of fashion. The shop project is still there in the background with solicitors still doing their thing. So much for estimated completion date of 25th August!

My latest commission is a gold and brown multiway necklace. I love making these things. I love choosing the range of beads and colours I'm going to include. The sitting and plugging away with wirewrapping them all on from a reel of wire. I used to use eyepins but using wire is much more satisfying and makes a better end product too.

I'm sure she's going to love it!
