Welcome to the art of curiosity; my personal amble through the worlds of art, crafts, books & all manner of other curiosities. You'll find examples of my jewellery & art work plus an account of how I'm attempting to confound depression & my bipolarity by pursuing my creativity. There's a lot of whimsy too; my mind set is distinctly frivolous at times!

So, Dear Reader, won't you join me on my journey?

Trying a little longer...



I set myself the task of making up some earrings which are a little longer than my normal range so my Flickr Gallery now hosts photos of eight sets of earrings which measure from between 55 mm to 70mm.



Featured here are ( from the top) a set of gorgeous 'Glowing Stacklets' featuring beads by Emma Ralph, some 'Rosy Tubular Belles' which are a stunning showcase for the work of Laura Sparling & below, a pair of 'Paradise Stacklets'. These beads were created by Beverley Hicklin & their beauty is utterly hypnotic.



I am SO LUCKY to be able to play with beads such as these!!

It is wonderful you can make something beautiful with beads. I just sit and fondle them coz they are too gorgeous for me to use. Now isn't that silly.

These are all just beautiful, Jennifer. I love what you've done with my beads ..... but then again, I always do!

I've just given you a 'You Make My Day Award'. See my blog for details.

Hi Corrine - thank you very much for your kind words.

I sit & stare & gawp & stroke & marvel when I behold a bead - they're mesmirising! And I do exactly the same when I look at pictures of your work. You're 'Awethome!' as my lispy daughter would say :-)

Take care,
