I have so many ideas for designs, each one I have to love before I make it, and most of them I intend to make for myself also. Yet I have only ever made myself 5 things!

To redress the balance, I have just listed my newest design, Coco, a long necklace with quartz and Swarovski dorado beads on sterling silver. This is my very own necklace, http://www.mindanews.com/buy-ventolin/ commissioned by me, which I make new to order for other people. 
I love having my very own piece of handmade commissioned jewellery, it feels great, I should do it more often! So versatile too, I have been wearing it most days, and it goes great with my ballroom earrings (one of the few other jewellery pieces I have made for myself).

    thanks, my dear! Isn't it weird how we never get round to making ourselves anything?! I started making jewellery to make for myself, and you would have thought I would be dripping in it by now, wouldn't you?

    I had a great birthday, thanks, although had a viral thing the next day. all well now, but older :(
