Yay I made some stud earrings - it was a bit hit and miss but I did it - another string to my bow which is great I always get asked for stud earrings - so comments please!!
Just to prove I have been making with my favourite artian glass - this bracelet is a favourite of mine the colours are earthy but with oil slick colours - the name Cornubia is the old celtic spelling of what we now know as Cornwall. The name means "people of the horn", ie the Land's End section of the Cornish peninsula.
The name of this bracelet come from the Menhirs of Cornwall - men meaning stone and hir meaning long - longstones.
One of the most impressive Menhirs is Men Scryfa, a short walk from Men-an-Tol. The name means "inscribed stone" and is thought to be the burial place of a King slain at the battle of Gendhal Moor. Inscribed are the latin words "Rialobrani Cunovali Filii" - Rialobran, son of Cunoval. Legend says he was as tall as his grave stone - nine feet - and lays buried beneath it with his weapons and treasures.
Taken from Standing Stones of Cornwall
