Happy Handmade Monday!  Please check out Wendy's blog to see what others have been up to this week.

I have actually managed to be productive this past few days despite having a bit of a cold. Now a cold usually ends up on my chest but this time, *touch wood* it seems to have only had a tiny bit of an effect and, since I am going to clinic next week, I have decided not to bother getting any extra antibiotics. I don't know if it is, but I think it may be because I have managed to put weight on (over half a stone since April- am well chuffed!) I know I feel much better for it and its an excuse to buy new clothes :)

These are the bracelets I have listed...

First this flat circle bracelet

then this pretty red glass pearl bracelet

And finally, my favourite make this week, this multicoloured "rainbow" glass pearl bracelet.

I have also, fiiiiinally gotten around to building a Facebook business page, hopefully it will bring me some sales. You can find it here-

We had a visitor to the garden a few days ago and I just had to take a few photos.

 He's very cute isn't he? It is a shame that grey squirrels are such bad news for the reds. He seemed to be munching on some bird food in one of those net bag things, he looked like he was enjoying it anyway.

Have a great week!


  1. Lovely bracelets (and I love the photos, very bright and attractive). I hope that cold stays off your chest and disappears soon. Lovely squirrel pics :-)

  2. Very pretty bracelets :) I love to watch the squirrels; we often have them in the garden. Last year they stole my raspberries!

  3. Your bracelets are lovely. I really like the red and multicoloured ones. Good luck with the facebook page.

  4. Oh dear hope your cold is soon over. I love your bracelets the photos show them off beautifully. Cheeky squirrel, nicking of with the birds grub!

  5. The bracelets are beautiful!! Love the squirrels, we moved earlier this year, but where we lived for the previous 8 years we always had squirrels in the garden. We do miss seeing them, despite being Human targets for their acorn shooting practice :-)

  6. lovely sparkly bracelets! and beautifully photographed too, i think the red one is my fav but they are all beautiful :)

    i hope your cold clears up soon and doesn't trouble you too much x

  7. Hope you are feeling better soon.

    Love the flat beads in the top bracelet, not seen those before very pretty

  8. Wow, you've been busy despite your cold!

  9. Lovely bracelets Harriet, well done on being busy despite not feeling well x
    Hope you are better soon

  10. I adore the red bead bracelet. Reminds me of cranberries. Weird but true.

    Squirrels are one of the cutest. If I could I would own one. Next family pet though looks to be a hedgehog.

  11. Lovely braclets, I like the sheen on the beads in the top bracelet, the red bracelet is so rich looking and the multi coloured looks fun.
    The squiggle is great, I get them in my garden and I know they can be destructive and the enemy of the red but I love watching their antics.

    Take care

  12. I love your bracelets too. I love that each disc has a different pattern in the flat bracelet. It is a small detail but I like! I hope you feel better soon and your shop goes well. :)
