In October whilst knitting another bracelet, I came up with the idea of knitting some wire, bead and sari silk dresses, I also worked with freshwater pearls and semi-precious beads to make more necklace, and I also made a wire dragonfly brooch, which could be the start of something else entirely!

In November I made more jewellery specifically with Christmas in mind, so I chose to make with Venetian glass necklaces and pendants, I also continued with my wire dragonfly idea and made my first attempts at wire sculptures, hares and dragonflies. Novemebr ended with a visit to Birmingham to spend a day with twitters #sbs winners and Theo Paphitis, the post though wasn't written about it until December, as I wanted to include some of the official photos from the sbs website.

In December I photographed a lot of my wedding jewellery again with the plan of putting it online to sell, hopefully this will happen sometime in 2014, I also made a selection of small earrings to take in to Gallery at 12 as stocking fillers and small Christmas gifts
So that is my review of 2013 in four brief posts, I have a few plans for 2014, but as always plans are made but other things happen, so I wait with excitement to see what will happen in 2014 I can't wait to share with you my new makes -
Have a wonderful 2014
