Last week, I bought some ready made silver colored shapes, into which crystals can be added, in order to make pendants. The first two were a flower and a cross. To the flower I added purple crystals, and to the cross, topaz coloured crystals. I made them into pendants, but have not yet strung them onto a chain of any sort.
The others I turned into a pair of earrings and matching bracelet. these used 4mm crystals. I added silver coloured balls to this to make up the length. This week I went back to the same shop to buy more, so that I could do earrings in different colours, but they were out of stock - I will keep looking.
I moved to Canada in 2008, from the UK, with my husband and son.
I work as a nurse on a Spinal Cord Injury Unit.
In order to relax, I recently began creating jewellery made from glass beads, and found that people liked what I created, and even asked for custom made pieces.
