Jewellery for a change...



You know what its like..you go to jumble sales and craft fairs and buy old bits of jewellery and never make anything as it just gets forgotten about! Today I have made 2 keyrings, a little necklace pendant and a brooch. I have got a load of charms drying at the moment covered in diamond glaze and I have restrung my bracelets..you have probably noticed that I love wearing bracelets if you have watched any of my videos..check them out to the right. I went to the cinema this morning and saw True Grit...thought the young actress in it was excellent but I couldnt understand much of what Jeff Bridges was saying!...now I want to watch the old John Wayne version again..I love that bit at the end when John Wayne is riding the horse shooting the 2 rifles at the baddies!

Love your blog update! Fun key rings, you are so productive....do you sleep? Haven't seen the new
version yet, but yes, that last John Wayne scene was brilliant. Still wonder how he hung on guns blazing. xox Corrine

Love the top jewelry piece. It is just lovely and so vintage looking, which I love.
We saw True Grit also and I had the same problem understanding Bridges. She was amazing though! This one is more true to the book I heard. I saw the old one with J. Wayne years ago, and it is a good one too.
I watched your video and love it. Learned some new things. Thanks.

Hello Lorraine :) Thanks so much for popping by my blog...Hope all is well with you. Your key rings are marvelous! You always have something so creative to share. I missed seeing True Grit, I will have to wait for the DVD I suppose. I loved the King's Speech tho'. Have a great weekend!
