June - Summer? I think so,

Finished uni for the year. Woop! Passed all modules - YES! Get in. Now a chance to craft. Check it out so far.
Above, a selection of keyrings with swivel lobster clasps attached, so that they can be used as an accessory as well as the obvious. Nice block colour theme using glass beads, wire and waxed thread.

Now, here is my effort of being 'in fashion', if you are an avid pinterest user no doubt you'll have come across a similar pattern to these. My interest in knots can been seen in a previous post (http://www.byeck-emily.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/bff-innit.html), but I had not tackled macrame knotting before. So I gave it a go - resulting in a simple and 'current' bracelet.

The items seen above are soon to be for sale in the Gloucestershire Arts and Crafts Centre, alongside other pieces of my creation, a couple being the two designs of brooches seen below. A lovely crochet flower (left) and colourful 'yo-yo' brooches (right).
Also on show are my, what I call (mothers that's for you!), 'worm' bracelets. No, they are not found in the ground and eaten by birds or help with composting. But they are a lovely allignment of buttons that wrap around your wrist which are fastened in place with........ a button! (I love buttons) I've done a series of different colours, some block and some not.
I'll be back soon with some other stuff, no doubt.
