Sharing some of my creative journey :)

So my little Creative Journey is still enjoying a little
Jewelry Playtime at the moment
and ofcourse my Blog is a collection, & a journal of the things I make
So here's what I do....
I take little Vintage Treasures and Re-create with them :)
From Vintage Chandelier Crystals, to Vintage Skeleton Keys
it doesn't matter to me, as long as it's got a little bit of history
and is an interesting shape, or just looks Gorgeous.
Many of the beads I use, are really old, like the black bugle beads and the orange ones, they are vintage Japanese Glass beads from the 40-50s...
and I seem to have an addiction for brass at the moment, probably because many of these old beads are threaded onto brass findings..
So Anyway, this is the new camera, I know I've still got to work a little more on my use of it..
but so far it seems ok to use :)
Thanks heaps for taking the time to look at my work :)

Beautiful things, Gillian. I love what you have used. Im don't do jewellery making or beading but I do love the gorgeous hangings people make using bits & pieces & seeing how others do it.I love my minibooks & have been busy with team CJ's but I have done a few layouts over Xmas & the All About Eve is up & running again after the break so that gets me two layouts a month!!
The weeks fly don't they. I can't believe January is almost gone, Christmas a dim memory!
