International cabs!!

One of my lovely lady customers has made this gorgeous pendant with some of my cabs which she bought from me a couple of months ago.

and Guess What?? It is going overseas!! America to be exact. Very excited to know that I now have internation cab status! haha

First Beaded Cab

Well here is my first beaded cab completed!! Ta DA!! Not too shabby if I do say so myself. I didn't really find it that difficult either. Getting used to using such a fine needle had to take some practise but it's all good...

The cab was made by myself!

Big purchase!!!

Well unfortunately I can't say I have bought a heap of glass or beads. However something else that I have been saving for for awhile now. A NEW CAR!! Well it's new to me. It's a little 3door black Yaris, 2007. Great deal and apparently great little cars. Plus the bits and pieces won't cost an arm or a leg if they need fixing. Thank god. Only sad part is I have to say goodbye to my little mazda 121 which I have grown attatched too over the past 8 YEARS!!!

Here is a pic of my second baby...not my NEW baby...but my second baby.

Hopefully in the near future I can add some nice rims, sports lights and maybe a funky exhaust. But one thing at a time...

WIP - First beaded cab

Well I bit the bullet and thought I would try my first beaded cab tonight. I couldn't hold out any longer! It took me a while to do the first round of beads, almost an hour to be exact but then took me about an hour to do the row of smaller red ones and the second black row. I must say that I don't hate seed beads as much as I used to. Doing this was quite relaxing but now my neck and back hurts a little but so this is where I am stopping for tonight.

You do have to excuse the finger prints in the photos. I really didn't think that they would have showed up that much haha in the pic below you can see one of the spots where I pricked myself with the damn needle. I think I must have done it about 10 times which isn't too bad I guess.

I should probably add another row of smaller beads to wrap it around the cab more but I'm not sure if I really want to. I think I might have some gold ones somewhere but that might look a but odd. Not sure...hhmmm

Re-homed Cab

One of the lovely ladies, Margie bought one of my cabs a while ago. She has just put up some pics of what she has done with it and I am over the moon. I think it looks just totally awesome and makes me want to get off my bum and start my own beaded cabs!!! I have everything to do it with I just need the time...and

Anyway here are Margies pics of the beaded cab.

Love it!!!

I am a little bit late posting these up however here are a few things that I worked on over the weekend.

When tiding up the other day I found this little flower which I had made randomly. I didn't know what to do with it so I decided to make it into a little hairclip. I love it!! It is just so cute. I wore it work on Tuesday hehe I think I'll make some more for me and all my little girl friends!

My mum had been bugging me about not having a blue bracelet. So I decided that it was time to make one. This wasn't exactly my first idea of what the bracelet would look like, I was hoping for some more chunkiness but I didn't have any bigger blue beads. So this is what I ended up with. It is acually quite nice and full but not chunky.
