Christmas cards

I keep forgetting to take photos of the things I make.
I remembered to take pics of the last three xmas cards I made

The first and second one are quilling paper and the third one is a method I learned on Pinterest...using a photo, masking liquid and water colours.

Pure silk needle Tatting - necklace

This is extremely elegant and delicate needle tatting with thin thread and thinnest tatting needle I had
100% pure silk and tiny glass beads.

I find silk sits/lays much nicer on the body than cotton and has that luxury expensive feel to it.
it's 21" long but let me know if you want it longer (I can add to it).

It is now in my shop: MagicOnTheRox

Crochet Cotton & Pearl necklace

I enjoy doing works that would finish in one night. (My box of unfinished big pieces verify this).

So making this necklace was a joy as I started and finished it last night.

Have not starched the piece yet, so it will be flatter and stiffened when I do.

Workshop - MAKE YOUR OWN Mala, Prayer Beads, Worry Beads, Tasbeeh, Gratis Beads, Rosary

Please see my website:
http://www.magicontherox.co.uk/events.html

Make  your own
Mala, Tasbeeh, Prayer Beads,
Worry Beads, Rosary, Gratis beads




Throughout the eons, prayer beads have been used by many nations for various intentions, at times without any intrinsic  religious significance.

In our workshops, you will learn the fascinating philosophies behind these revered beads:

~ Japa Mala beads (Hindu and Buddhist Mantra beads)
~ Tasbeeh (Persian and Arab prayer and omen beads)
~ Kompoloi (Greek worry beads)
~ Rosary (Christian prayer beads)
~ Gratis beads (Gratitude and blessing beads)

After the learning about them, you will make your very own and then we practice its use.

To choose one is a deep personal affair as the material, the colour, shape, structure and the feel of each must strike a chord in your heart. You will learn how to make your very own either using the beads you bring yourself, or you can purchase them at the workshop (remember you can always recycle beads from old jewellery).

You can keep your beads in hand made sacred boxes or wear them as necklace, bracelet and keyrings.

Two magical elements...Paper and music

 - DELIGHTFUL!! -
Lisa Hannigan is an Irish singer, and apparently also a crafty girl! Take a look at the video for her song ‘I Don’t Know’ - it’s well worth watching to the end to see her paper cuts take shape. I love how much she seems to be enjoying her paper crafting as she sings.

Dangly ring and bracelet set - Paper and beads

I made the ring piece originally as a necklace pendant, but dangly ring was more fun an idea :) But it can turn into a pendant for necklace or be attached to the bracelet itself as well.
These are made out of paper and diamante beads.
