Beautiful sunshine here in the North East of England and I am indoors cutting up an old design!

Hi there!
Welcome to my new blog posts here on my website.
Today I made the decision to cut up an old design (the Snow Queen Necklace) that was made in 2015.  The Swarovski rivoli, bicones and pearls still have all of their original sparkle and lustre after three years.  Sadly the metallic silver plated components have not faired so well.
I have also made the decision to replace the majority of the seed beads.  Though the Miyuki galvanised silver No.15 seed beads have 90% of their original lustre - I will be replacing those too...
... as yet I have no idea what might become of the Swarovski beads I have managed to save ...

Happy Beading & Best Wishes
