Autumn Weaves

Autumn Weaves handmade jewellery blog, is all about items that are for sale on my website, current projects that I am working on and simple things that go on throught a normal day with me.

its been a hectic few weeks, as the snow set in for almost 2 1/2 weeks solidly, and I was beginning to think I would never see colour again.

However a nice big rain cloud and some warmer temperatures means that all the snow has almost gone thank goodness!!

You would think with all the snow that I would be totatly inspired and have made lots of things, but thats a big fat NO!

I have managed to make in the last few days one of Jean Powers gorgeous geometric stars though, I brought the pattern ages ago, had a go couldnt get it to go right, and it got lost on my messy hard drive, it wasn’t until I was clearing the data off it, to put certain new items on my new laptop that I came across it! so I am very pleased at the way it came out, and I LOOOVE wearing it :D DSCF3146

seee! isnt it prettty :) If you would like to make your own star go to and buy it, she got some amazing tutorials on there, she really is a talented beader! :)

The other thing I made is a St Petersburg bracelet in a wonderful burnt orange with a deep metallic brown, the colours are beautiful!


and with the season of Love sneaking rapidly up behind us! I hoped to have some more heart themed stuff, I just haven’t got round to it! I should show you this!!!


I mean How CUTE! are these dinky little hearts BLESS!!!

anyways I need to go find something more constructive to do than sitting here on the computer so I am off



PS! Oh yeah I got an interview on Tuesday at a local school! forgot to say!


Well We are back in Bracknell, yesterday was hectic having spent the day doing rainbow paperwork. I do hope it doesn't snow though like the Met office has forecasted. We have been told that the heating in our rainbow meeting place is broken and a engineer could be fixing it today, so mum and I are wondering whether it should go ahead anyway, but if the snow falls, I think I might cancel it, with no heating and the snow, I think it might be a bit much!!! stupid snow!

Beading wise I haven’t done much although I am working on something that I hope will loook good when I am finished, but dont count on it being soon lol!


Well its time to pack the last few things and head to Berkshire, Im so tired this morning…….. but I do hope to get my to do list sorted tommorow, so I can get some beading done. Its been a lovely week , so I am sad we are back to a routine of going to rainbows etc….

Tommorow is a day of rainbow paperwork fun fun fun!!!

anyways must pack the laptop

Well its here, after all the hype, Big -Ben chimed midnight, and the UK said goodbye to 2009 and hello to 2010. Today is going to be a nice relaxing day before I have to get back to reality UGH! We return home on Sunday, so we are going to go for a nice walk across the beach in a hour or two!

Im not making New year Resolutions, they are there to be broken, so these are ideas, and plans I would like to acheive!

What I want to get out of 2010?

1. I want to find my girly self ( I am fed up with messy hair,tired loook) so I will find my girly side, she is hiding in me somewhere

2. I want to carry on learning and beading as much as I can, and using this blog, i want to look back on it, in a years time and see how much I have advanced.

3. I start my new degree in February, and I want to take it seriously, no more messing around with courses, this course is what I want to do, so its time to get  serious.

4. I want to be the best wife I can to Iain, He puts up with a lot, beads, thread, and mess everywhere, I am not the tidiest of people, but he still loves me, and always encourages me. So it is time that I stopped taking advantage of him.

5. I want to be out of my parents house and living with iain before the year is out, to be in own home, to be independent and to invite my parents over, and iains parents over for dinner, so we can thank them for all the support they have given us.

6. I want a job before the year is out, I am fed up with not doing anything, and I know I will be studying, but I want to be earning, I want to be showing people my skills. Beading job would be nice, but somehow I don’t see that happening, although I do want to make the beading work :)

I want to finish my beading project hopefully today or tomorrow, although it is proving to be a pain in the butt!!!  I don't want to give too much away, but it is getting there… :) so Watch this space!!!!

Right I think that's enough rubbish for today, CONGRATULATIONS if you managed to get to the end without falling asleep!
