Spring Fever !!!!!

Oh dear me as usual at Faerystone Castle nothing but nothing goes right,honestly i think i must have been Attilla the Hun in a previous life and am now paying for all my past wrong doings !!!!!!!
Not long ago i was lucky enough to win a place on the Fabulous Spring Design Challenge and was sent the most beautiful artisan beads and ribbon from Lesley,Claire and Caroline.Marvelous i thought beautiful pretties and lots of time to play with them..................................yeah right !!!!

So what went wrong i hear you cry (well i'm nearly crying) here is the list of problems.

1 No mojo (no not a bloody jot)
2 For some reason thought it was a May reveal (Doh)
3 PANIC
4 Eventually find and make 4 items then  takes pics and prepares to blog yesterday................CAMERA LOCKS UP AND WILL NOT GIVE ME PICTURES ARGHAAAAA
5 Dog ate my homework.................no seriously i had hung my necklace made with the fabulous flower pendant from Lesley Watt on the door handle and my horrid little Jack Russel has eaten it along with the beautiful ribbon from Smitten Beads (she is in such disgrace)
6 Go to take pics with my poopy old camera and its sun cloud sun cloud sun cloud RAIN argaaaaa poop.

So now i have 3 pieces to show you not 4 and the pics are not what i wanted and i havent got a before pic,hangs head in shame.........so sorry ladies but here is what i have salvaged and if anyone wants me i'm the large person rocking in a corner swigging from a bottle of gin and pulling my hair out lol

Blush Pink

Beautiful ceramic beads by THEAElements with my fave little green beads from Smitten beads and some gorgeous dangles from THEAElements very spring like




Delicate.

Tiny palest pink bird from Blueberribeads with hand crafted fancy chain by Faerystone (thats me lol) shell pink pearls simple and very pretty
Ruby.

This fabulous bird by Blueberri beads was just so delicate and pretty i wanted to accent how fine it was so i mixed a few little ruby coloured crystals and pearls with a very fine twisted link chain from Faerystone and hopefully its worked






So there you have it my Spring Fever challenge i seem to have gone very girly and feminine which is totally not me,but i do hope i have done these beautiful pretties justice ..................now if you will excuse me i'm going for a lie down,do pop over and see all the other gorgeous creations from these talented ladies............xxxxxxxx

  3. Oh gosh Lucy...it could only happen to you couldn't it...I'm so sorry you couldn't show all your work and I should be angry with your little pooch but I'm more concerned that he's ok..? beads and ribbon don't sound very appetising! Love the pieces you have created and there's nothing wrong with us non girlies being girly once in a while...

  7. Is it wrong to say that I am chuckling over here? The dog ate your homework! Bah! That is so wrong but so funny at the same time! It must have been tasty beads and ribbon - did you coat them in bacon?! ;-) I love the handmade chain that you created. Such a pretty presentation despite the setbacks. Thank you for sharing your spring fever! Enjoy the day. Erin

  8. So sorry to hear your struggles! At least you moved forward even though your dog set you back. I dropped the gorgeous leaf on ceramic tile. This winter had bad mojo! I absolutely love your fancy chain by Faerystone. Lucky you to be able to make it. The earrings are perfect for spring! Well done!
