Well, that's Christmas dealt with for another year, and after some obscene over indulgence, I'm raring to get stuck into 2012.
Just before all that festive lunacy, I sent a little parcel of my stuff to the divine Fanciful D, who so kindly described the contents in the above manner!!! More - SO much more than that, she photographed them beautifully - and has been using my little oddities in some of her stunning creations.
Just loook what she did!!!
Isn't she amazing!!
So - yeah, I was stunned enough then - but LOOOOOOK!!!

I'm completely blown away!!
During some very helpful conversations with Janet (more about that lovely lady in a bit), and Fanci herself, I've decided to put some of these ceramic focal beads out in my shop in assorted selections.
I've put ten of them together so far to see how they go.
Bamboo beads, mixed wood Indian beads, drilled pebbles and shells, a kiln fired penny on a bail, a bronzed bezel, terracotta and black stoneware spacers, terracotta and buff spacers and bezel, a black beak, a hand, and a black piggies tail.
Mixed wood Indian beads, bamboo beads, drilled shells and pebbles, sea glass pebbles, a triangular bezel, black stoneware and porcelain mixed bead, some spacers, a lazy eye, a talon, a strange insect and some brain.
Ceramic spacers, drilled shells and pebble, sea glass, mixed wood Indian beads, bamboo beads, a tiny milk tooth, a kiln fired penny and bail, a claw, stoneware bezel, odd shaped spacer, buff bead with black slip decor, a trotter and a foot.
Bamboo beads, drilled shell and pebbles, mixed wood Indian beads, a blackened bezel, a buff birdie, porcelain and terracotta mixed bead, a dewdrop, spacers, a fang, an eye, and a little leg.

Two glazed pendants and a cabachon
Also going in to the shop - finally - is this necklace I've been messing about with for FAR too long - ugh.
Now then, that sweetie pop, Janet has just started her new blog (follow that link), and also her Etsy shop as Anvil Artifacts, - both are too gorgeous for words, and MUST be seen!!! Just for tasters - get a load of these yummies of hers.
|Enjoy them while you can, because I don't think they'll be around for long!|
Well, I had all good intentions of clambering down to the beach at the Valley Of The Rocks this morning, to see if I could find something interesting. But this was the weather today.
Yep - Thundersnow!!! It's no fun having that pinging off your bonce in a howling gale.
This cruddy light is why my pics look rather drearier than I would have liked.
Boo Hiss Boo - some old misery dick objected to having his picture on here, so instead, here's a pea-hen, who doesn't mind at all!!
