Luscious Lampwork

I was recently on searching for the perfect beads for a custom order, and came across a fabulous business in the South of England who produce the most beautiful handmade glass lampwork beads. Every single bead I looked at was gorgeous! So, I bought the beads for my custom order and then immediately ordered some more...

Sadly, many of the beads are a little out of my usual price range, but I will be splashing out on a few of the pendants and larger beads which I will post on arrival. In the meantime, if you love your lampwork and want to discuss possibilities, just shout!

Summer fun

I adore these bracelets - the perfect way for mixing up some colours with a tassel for fun! 
The beads are so light, you hardly know you are wearing them, and you can double or even triple for maximum effect!

Feeling nutty about Tagua

I remember visiting the London Fashion Show a few years ago and seeing a table of Tagua nut jewellery and being blown away by the colours and textures! Its a fabulous bead to use, because they combine such vivid colours but with a completely natural, earthy texture and are very light, which is perfect for summer. The only downside? Patiently hand drilling all those holes...

All of the necklaces & bracelets here are currently available at Battle Bygones, in Battle and are priced at £16 necklace and £8 bracelet.

Growing jewellery from one little amber ring...

Take one piece of jewellery and let your mind run free...

Green amber ring (rather chunky I might add!)

And it really needed a necklace. Not a matching necklace, but something coordinating. Maybe a dichroic pendant in shades of green and amber...

You'll need bracelets too of course. And earrings. And maybe another necklace!

And before you know it, that mix of shell, glass and amber came together to make these...

And these!

Do you have a little something in your life that needs some extras?! 
Get your set for as little as £10...

Shopping online... choices, choices!

I used to have a jewellery website, but when you consider that every item is a 'one off' design, you can imagine how long it too me to keep updating the stock, and the photos and the descriptions... it felt like I spent more time on the website than I did making the jewellery! Fortunately for everyone everywhere, Etsy is a perfectly good alternative, and although it still requires a little effort, there's plenty of jewellery to be found...

Orange & Turquoise (14001Ng & bracelet 14002Bg)

Every shade of wood! (14066Ng)

Chunky safari (14155Ng)

Orange & Grey (14157Ng & bracelet 14158Bg)

Smile with shell (15060Ng)

All available along with much more at the Mingels Marvels shop at Etsy. 
Prices from £14 necklace & £6 bracelet
