Muffin Tin Challenge 2017

Hello everyone!

Goodness me it's dusty here! I've not written a blog for well over a year now how bad is that!?
I'm participating in a muffin tin challenge created by Heather Powers of  HumbleBeads It's not a cookery challenge lol It's a jewellery one!

I've not been well since boxing day last year and kind of lost my jewellery making mojo! I saw this challenge and thought it would give me the kick start I need to get back in the game so to speak.

So as usual life gets busy and I only managed to start this challenge on the day of the deadline eh hem today!! 15th January ha!! Yep you guessed it last minuet job lucky for my the time difference helped me and I have until 5am GMT to get my creations and this blog done and in ha ha!!

Please do excuse the photo's as I ran out of daylight to take any decent photo's luckily Heather said don't worry about it just get rough photo's done so here's my 6 entries for the muffin tin challenge....



Here's my muffin tin with all 6 lots of supply's gathered cool eh?


First up is these beautiful butterfly earrings featuring Grubbi Ceramics I hand painted the butterflies with Vintaj Verdigris patina

Second is this beautiful Orchard wrap bracelet featuring Scorched Earth

How it looks on my wrist


Third is this gorgeous cherry blossom dream necklace featuring  Kirsty Jess, Grubbi Ceramics and an artisan polymer clay rose

Forth is some stunning earrings featuring HumbleBeads, artisan lampwork and Art Insendi

Fifth is another beautiful pair of earrings this time featuring my own polymer clay flower charms and Lampwork by Joanne Joyce. This photo has to be the worst ha!!

Last but not least my sixth entry another beautiful necklace featuring Beady eyed Bunny,  Helena Benkoczka and Bluebrri Beads


I hope you like what I came up with I'm super pleased with it all such an achievement for me since I've not been able to make anything I think since before Christmas!!

I defiantly will be re doing my photo's tomorrow ha!!

That's all from me at the moment I hope to write again sooner next time!

  5. I truly believe in the inspirational effect of this challenge, also because of the deadline, ha-ha, but what you did in one day is amazing - each piece is so unique and beautiful. You should create more but I'm sure you know that :)
