Paper Circle Necklace

Last week I went to a workshop in Coventry and whilst there I saw a paper circles necklace it was amazing. I emailed the lady who made it for instructions but whilst waiting for a reply a thought I would give it a go and try to make it myself, so on Friday night at Ilkeston Dabblers the lovely Alyson and wonderful Jaqui punched hundreds of paper circles out for me using 3 SU circle punches sizes 1-1/4", 1" and 3/4"  and 3 different SU A4 card colours Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Mellow Moss, the ribbon is also SU 1/4" Grosgrain in Elegant Eggplant. Then I spent the next few days trying to find the time to punch a hole in the middle of each one. When they were all finally done I threaded them onto Tiger Tail and made this necklace.

I'm not sure how many circles it took I'd have to count them but I love it and it is so light weight, just don't wear it whilst it's raining which is every day at the moment!! 

I was just so proud of it I thought I would share it with you all.

Bye for now

Well I haven't gone to Tansley, carbooting this morning, even though I was up at 5:45am the weather was just too wet and at Tansley if it is wet it is very muddy and no fun at all. There is always next weekend.

I have put a few more things on ebay again and there will be some more things going on in the next couple of days. I am even going to put some of my jewellery on just to see how it goes. I hope you'll pop over and have a look for me. Here is a couple of pictures of one set that I have put on there.

Well I am still here just about, Time really does fly by, I had another birthday, I feel old now but I'm sure that will pass. I still don't have a job and have had to go to a Back to Work interview in the week and I was the only woman in a room of blokes, felt a bit out of place there.

Oscar is getting so big now it is hard to even picture him as small as he was when we brought him home and he is still growing but he is so well behaved I love him to bits.

One piece of exciting news I have is that I have got a few pieces of my jewellery in a shop. The shop is Maz's who is Karen's MIL and it is called Love,Heart,Home it is definately worth having a look. She does have some beautiful things.

I have also discovered the powers of  Ebay, I have put alot of my craft things on there, to try and make some room for more and am adding more things daily. I have also put some things on there for my Mum., she is moving to Gibraltor in September, I wish her lots of luck and will try to help where I can, even if that means getting up at 5.30am on a Sunday morning to go carbooting.

Bye for now
