Ok, so I've always been a thread and needle kinda gal, so beads and wire is really new to me. I read up and did some research on how to make a pair of simple earrings, then today I went to get the supplies and here is the first three pairs I made. Once I've perfected the 'loop' (which was a bummer coz I had a pair of round nose pliers in my basket, then put it back deciding I don't really need it - big mistake) so anyway, once I've perfected to wrap the loop, I'll be making more earrings and they'll be up on my etsy shop soon. These are made using swarovski crystal beads and hung on 925 silver ear wires.

Lately I've been feeling a little homesick, and sometimes think about going back to Cessnock where I spent my childhoodish turned teenage years. Cessnock is just a little rural town some two hours drive from Sydney, it is also located in The Hunter Valley area, the ever popular wine region. Although now, I wouldn't call it quite 'rural' anymore coz new shops and shopping centres are continuingly being built in town. Here is B and I at one of the vineyards, taken when I went back in December 2004.
