Emily's Art Challenge!


I am really enjoying this challenge and being off work allows me to keep up with it!! Working is so over rated, I could get used to this!! I decided to start to collect these beautiful beads and i was surprised to receive 6 for my birthday, they were gifts from Mum and dad, Laura and Scott and Shirleen. Added to that I had bought myself one as a treat, so my bracelet is well underway.
My bracelet is a mixture of Troll beads and Dolly Beads, the Dolly's are hand made by my friend Jaq and you can see her shop here - http://www.astringofbeads.co.uk/.
Thanks for this challenge , its keeping me focused!!

Love the black background, really makes the colours of the beads stand out better than any paper could have done. It is fantastic.

Oh Lyzzy I've been a bad, bad friend :( I'm catching up on your blog (and wow Em Falconbridge commented - how cool is that???) and I'm dead impressed at how well you are doing and how positive you sound. I really hope you are still on for Debden! Sorry I've been wrapped up in my own stuff but I promise to be more available :) Take care and let me know when you are well enough for a Starbucks....
