cascade tiara

As promised here is another item of my 'cascade' jewellery range.
Another knitted tiara but unlike any other I have have ever knitted before!

I use the term 'range' loosely when describing my cascade jewellery as they are all one off's - so although I can re-create an item in the same style it won't ever be identical to any previous item in the cascade jewellery 'range'

A little long indulgenge

I have been promising myself for a few month now that I will make a long necklace, so today I put down my knitting needles and wire and sat threading glass beads straight onto beading thread instead.
I really enjoyed making this. It is long enough to wrap around your neck four times comfortably if you don't want to wear it long. I have attached a clasp which makes it easier to wrap around as you don't have to pull that last loop tight over your head and knock your glasses off in the process!

Wedding for today

It was the big day for one of my customers today. Kate's wedding day.
I made Kate's jewellery and the jewellery for Kate's sister bridesmaid a couple of months ago.

bridesmaid's necklace - Swarovski crystal pearls

bridesmaid's earrings - Swarovski crystal pearls and gold coloured glass bead

Bride's earrings - Swarovski crystal pearl with clear and gold glass beads

knitted bracelet for both bride and bridesmaid with gold and silver glass beads interspersed with Swarovski crystal pearls
I then had a last minute order for a hair comb this week, so I made Kate this

Huge congratulations Kate - I do hope you had a wonderful day today.
