A Little Lost and Found and New Supplies..

I have a confession to make... I lose things - all the time!  My car/house/work keys have been on the missing list for 3 weeks now, and one of these earrings - my favourite, simple, wear all the time numbers, was also lost until today.  I'm so happy they've been reunited!  Do you have a favourite thing you really don't like to be without?

And on a completely seperate topic... these beautiful beads arrived in my mailbox today from far away shores.  Unbelievable service ..5 days from order to delivery ex USA!  I'm so looking forward to working with the gorgeous Jasper, Agate, and Ruby Variscite and don't even get me started on the silk ribbon and czech fire-polished beads... slurp!!

And this week's interesting jewellery fact:
Following on from last week's word meaning of 'necklace'  The word 'bracelet' comes from the Latin word 'brachiale' which means 'belonging to the arm'.

Have a great rest of the week everyone, catch you next week.  Mel x


  1. What a gorgeous selection of beading goodies you received.....I look forward to seeing what you create :) I love earrings and my favourite pair are no longer a pair after I stupidly wore them jet skiing on Lake Taupo in the summer :(

  2. I'm so glad that you've found your missing earring Mel. I have quite a collection of single ones myself... My favourite - an amber drop on an antique chain - fell through a crack in the floor-boards of a house I once lived in - never to seen again. True!!

    Lovely blues in your new arrivals - Have fun with them. :)


I'd love your feedback, please leave me a comment...
