Where to start?...

Every year one of my new resolutions is always to keep up with my blog, but alas, that is one of the many things that I do not accomplish.

It is not that I don´t have anything to tell, because I do.
I have tons of new projects I am working on, or fairs that I have gone to, or that special item that I just bought in a special place for my work.
But even more important than what I have to share is that I do miss my blogland friends.

Let me show you just a little bit of what I have been up to these days.

These pieces, plus earrings in many different colours have been my best selling pieces in fairs and events, and because they can be made to order I have been making them a lot, and I am still not tired of them at all. They look stunning when on. The are simple and still so eye catching! The red, black and blue have been the most popular.

I also have been to few craft fairs and events. Out of all of them, I think the Christmas vintage ones have been my favourite.

I have been enamelling a lot of stud earrings. So many, that I even thought of writing a tutorial on how to make them strong and tiny and cute. Let me know if you are interested.

There was an event that I really, really enjoyed and wanted to write about, and that was a just one day metal clay course I took with Joy Funnell in Hastings (England). It was an anniversary present from my husband. We were in the UK for few weeks and I had the fortune of attending one of her classes. If by any chance you are near Hastings and you can afford it, I highly recommend it. It is not just that she is very talented, she is sweet and nice to be around. 

I will leave you with just few more pictures of some of my experiments.

Did I mention that I also had another baby girl? That makes three girls, although I won´t be posting any picture of them.
So juggling everything has not been easy, and I had to choose on how to use my time, so media wasn't a priority.
There you go.  A quick sneak pick on what I have been up to.

See you around!
