Summer Roses in store...

Wednesday already...my, my! ;)

...as promised, a wee sneak peek from the workshop today where I am working on some new summer necklaces using those gorgeous juicy gemstone beads I bought the other week. I am so excited by them - I just loved the colours! I have decided to team these beads with an old fashioned rose motif that I found a long time ago in a Botanical illustration book - the drawing dated back to the 1800's...and, after being surrounded by the most stunning roses at the park in Belfast at the weekend, the colours made me think these two would make a perfect team...

Mmm! Can't wait to get them finished and in the shop :) I am imagining these teamed with floaty summer dresses on balmy summer nights...!!
My third post over on DesignSponge is now up - the Transitional Wallpapers of Lene Toni Kjeld ... really gorgeous!

Speaking of which, I found a beautiful photography site today and I wished I read Japanese! The styling is BEYOND stunning... enjoy! ;)


In other news - my lovely chap is celebrating 100 facebook fans with a 100 hour sale!
Enter the code FBFANS100 for a juicy wee 10% off any order in his store...

Now off to get ready as I am heading out for dinner with my folks and to ikea to find a frame for this beauty!! wheeeeee ;)

Back with more tomorrow, xo
