A Little Bit of Beading

I have been feeling much better this week, thank you for all the get well wishes.  Well enough, in fact, to help Chris with painting the sitting room.  He is between boats at the moment so has come to help us with quite a few jobs around the house which is much appreciated!  (If any of you are going to the Southampton Boat Show this weekend or have been over the past week you may have seen his boat without even realising it!! lol)

I have only pottered around doing nothing much at all but I did have this bracelet on the go to pop in and add a few beads when the urge came.

I'm not overly happy with the box clasp.  It sits well but is a fiddle to use so I may change it for a slide lock instead.  We'll see.

We have a nice quiet weekend ahead with a little Grand Prix and the rugby and Chris is also running his first half marathon in the New Forest tomorrow so we will be cheering him on along the way.

Have a great weekend.



  1. Stumbled upon your blog, as one does when surfing :) Loving your work. I've only just started doing small pieces of textile work and mini quilts, so your beautiful pieces are an inspiration. Thank you.

  2. Lovely beading! So glad that you are feeling better! I tried to comment yesterday, but couldn't get the link to work. Glad I tried again!

  3. Dear Amanda,

    so glad to hear that you are doing better - I am sending you all my good wishes.

    Just discovered your blog and I am amazed about the beauty of your beadwork. I guess I have to spend some more time to look around, thanks for finding me ♥.

    Your Cabochon is going out in the morning - I so do hope that you will love it. As told in the description it has a screw on the backside and it is designed for the rings and pendant holder from the German Ringding and Sunset Boulevard Company.
    But it is flat and you can also integrate it in your beadwork - I am looking forward to a feedback from you.
    Have a beautiful night,
    xxox Manuela
