I made a long necklace!

The disc beads are from the bead shop in the Custard Factory, Birmingham; the glass beads are Indian lamp work; and the rest is silver-plated. I especially like the plain style of the chain, which nicely complements the floral design of the disc beads, and makes it easy to adjust the necklace length.

In the picture above you can see that it's all misty over the fields... the weather really is autumnal now.

Late summer earrings

Although summer's almost ended by all objective criteria, I still have summer in my head - at least, I'm still slightly jet-lagged from my holidays.

I made a little present for another Sarah, whose birthday party we're going to today, and I think a little bit of summer crept into that too.

I used:

green shell beads from the late lamented craft shop in our town
silver plated Greek ceramic discs
matte aqua seed beads
silver plated headpins
sterling silver earwires

ETA: She liked them!
