Strange handmade beads

Beads made by Jenny Stacy
 When searching through boxes of beads this morning I came across these I made from Fimo years ago.

 I remember making jewellery for children with the Russian dolls. These ones weren't used because they aren't good enough.

 I remember making the fruit which I thought would be good for necklaces but actually they are too fat and don't sit well.

 The beads I like best are the black and white bead - imagine a necklace made with lots of those and the abstract one far right which would be good incorporated into a collage.
I keep thinking of indigo colours at the moment. The shades of faded blue jeans and new jeans. That would be good inspiration for a necklace I think.

Yesterday Kate Box came into the shop with the softest wool wrist warmers she has made. I'll try to remember to take a picture of them today. I'll have to be quick because I have a feeling these will sell fast!

I always remember the black and white Fimo necklaces you made and sold at the Petersfield Art Show. They were stunning.

Thank you Christine. I'll try to do something along those lines again.
