In case anyone is wondering what it looked like...

I found this video...

It's just a part of the storm... Just before the hail stones we had very strong winds, some people said it even looked like a tornado...

Bead inspiration anyone?

And these "beauties" had melted a bit when I took the picture...

Yesterday evening I had the misfortune to witness the biggest thunderstorm I've ever seen.

The garden is ruined...

C.I.F. and other things

These are the gifts I sent to Elsie. A necklace with a handmade stoneware pendant and earrings with old belgian coins. Check Elsie's blog and shop.

And Sherry spoiled me with this amazing necklace. She knows I love the settings she makes so she surprised me with this beauty ! Check her blog and shop !

I sent these "candy" buttons to Lindsay... one day they will adorn her beautiful purses. Check her shop and her blog!

I bought a jewelry stamp last month and here's something I made using it. Aluminium, silver,silver plated copper and vintage glass pearls.

I also have been busy gardening, hunting treasures at the flea market ( well they must be "treasures" when you see the prices asked ! I managed to get some cool religious medals to swap with Steph at Vision In Silver).
So what have you been up to ?
