Pretty little things

It’s strange how small accomplishments can often bring the greatest pleasure: a completed crossword, a neat pile of ironing, a tray of perfectly risen cakes. That’s why sometimes creating small but beautiful things rather than knitting an inch of your current major project is a good use of a precious hour. I’ve been on a bit of a jewellery-making binge recently (both knitted and non-knitted) and I’ve put some photos of a couple of the things I’ve made below.  I'll put more projects in my next post, but I thought I'd stick to a sea theme in this one.

Blue wave -silver beaded cuff



Seafoam and Pearls - knitted lace choker

A simple seafoam stitch choker with pearls.  The buttons at the back are made with larger pearls and seed beads and the tiny button loops are just so sweet.

Beautiful work! The buzz of finishing something in knitting or in life is something I relish; it's just so lovely to see what you've done in a day isn't it?

The braclet is gorgeous, are you intending to sell them or are they for you?

So beautiful!!! I love how delicate they look. Will you be making more of these? I have never seen anything like them.

I'm just experimenting at the moment. I want to eventually try and make some pocket money out of my crafting but I guess we'd all like to do that!
