Jigsaw Jewellery

My first ever pieces of jewellery. I'd been toying with the idea of making some jewellery from jigsaw pieces for a while but needed it to be for someone who would appreciate it (ie, not my family or non-forum friends LOL). I made some earrings and a broach by embossing with gold powder then stamping a bagkground stamp into the still wet powder.

They were for the HCA me to you swap so Tina was my victim for September. Can you believe I was early too, how totally not like me!!! Must be these pills Im on LOL

Dont think I'll be making anything for a while!!! Those of you that know me will know I have been suffering with 2 slipped discs. Well I had got alot better to the point where I was relatively pain free. Unfortunately this week things just got a whole lot worse!! So Im now back being a practical cripple again which means I cant sit down for too long. Fingers crossed someone will shoot me soon LOL

Christmas cards!

Thought I'd make a start and try and get ahead of myself! Usually im a christmas eve kinda gal but thought I would be good this year and start early whilst I have time. Plus, my card making is a bit pants so I need plenty of time for all the one's that get 'filed in bin'. The snowman stamp is designed by the very talented Hels Sheridan as part of her stichels range.

My name is..........

No not Earl but Alison!!! This is my 'make' for another swap. This time we have to make something that had our swapping partners name on. I know Alison is into oriental so hope she likes my jigsaw geisha!!

Simply black and white!!

The theme for this month's 9-4-9 swap on the LotsToDo forum is Black and White (suggested by Hilda). I have to say I really struggled with this one!!! I had finished it a few days ago, left it on my desk, looked aat it everyday and decided it was crap! So that went in the bin and I made a new one LOL
