happy holiday inspiration

If you visit my beyond my garden gate blog, you will know that I have recently enjoyed a wonderful week on the beautiful Hebridean island of Colonsay. So many things on the island to inspire, including the fantastic lichen covered rocks.

Having seen these beautiful colours knitted together on the Hebridean boulders, it was inevitable really that on my returned I would have to knit some of my own lichen inspired bracelets!

crystal pearl flowers

I did promise last month that I would show the jewellery I made to wear to my niece's wedding.
So finally here it is!!!

These items have been made with Swarovski crystal pearls and tiny glass rocaille beads, and no I don't have any photo's of me wearing them!!!

The wedding, by the way, was lovely, so many personal touches went into it to make it quite perfect.

crystals and pearls

I haven't made any necklaces up in this design for quite a while, but now and again I have to re-visit this old favourite!
I have made this one with Swarovski crystal pearls and clear Swarovski crystals.
Hope you like it!
