A kiss of Spring

I used the title of my latest piece for this post - today the sun was shining and guess what we actually felt some warmth - mind you, you had to be out of the wind, now that was cold! In fact the children all came out of school asking for their coats off - how funny as soon as the sun shines they want to strip off - really it wasn't that warm!! Maybe being in Cornwall and the South of the UK we feel the warmth sooner, of course sun rises and sets earlier and later then say Scotland but then again we can grow palm trees and other plants that anyone further up (For us Cornish anything over the Tamar {River seperating Cornwall and Devon} is "Up Norf"!! :0D

Now a little about the jewellery - the first bracelet is made from tiny (4 - 5 mm) rounds of primarily, Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Peridot and Aquamarine, with my little 'Kisses' in and amongst the gemstones. It took me quite a few {understatement} to finish her but I'm so happy with the finish look. The second bracelet with Isabelle Andersons beautiful beads and micro faceted rounds of Smokey Quartz with Bali silver.

Wasn't it lovely to see the sun, hopefully a promise of spring and summer to come!

A perfect pretty bracelet, how much do you like turning loops, did you get sore fingers by any chance... :-)

Jo, that first bracelet is bloomin gorgeous, so full and lush. We had a bit of the sun today too, but we also had some very dark clouds too.

I love the softness of the colors in the first bracelet, and the beads in the second - awesome!
Oh - it's below zero here today. Would love to feel some warmth!

do you mind not depressing me by mentioning how cold Scotland is, lol.

Mind you i don't know where this snow and rain is that we've apprently been getting. The sun hasn't stopped shining.

I love that top bracelet but really don't want to think how long it took you to make all those headpins

Dang, girl!!! I saw this on Flickr and had to pick my jaw up off the floor! It's just gorgeous! I don't believe I'd have the patience for that much wrapping. It's all I can do to wrap one briolette, much less a thousand tiny little things I can barely see!!
