This blog has moved!

I haven't blogged in a long time. Work (of the 9 to 5 kind) and family after the move to Berlin sort of overwhelmed me, and I have been sort of worn out and uninspired, spending more time reading than making jewellery, the last year. I want to come back, but in a new way, so I'm sort of merging this blog and my other, Swedish blog. You will find all the old posts from this blog there. And some other ones too, in Swedish. Not too bad, eh? Anyway, I hope to be able to make a fresh start there, with a more personal blog, perhaps some of my photography and stuff as well. I hope you'll find your way there!

Result: Bead Soup Jewellery!

This is what I made with the beadsoup on Friday. I still have quite a lot of soup left, let's see if I manage to make something with that this week.

What to do with bead soup?

If you make jewellery, you probably have a bunch of beads like these. Leftovers from finished projects, salvaged beads from bungled projects, beads you found on the floor... What to do with them? Maybe my jewellery project for today should be making something with these beads? What do you think? Any ideas?

Yay! I'm finally having my vacation, a full two weeks. During this time, the shops will be closed. I'm looking forward to spending time with friends and family and generally having a good time. I will still post updates on Facebook if I get the chance.

Shield Earrings with Black SpinelShield Earrings with Black Spinel

Today I packed up all my tools for the move, as they are going on the first trip on Monday. It makes me feel sad to be away from them for so long, but apart from that I'm looking forward to moving. Anyway, I hope I'll be able to sneak out pliers, wire and a small selection of beads that I can play with until we finally move in late October...

Find my Jewellery on Facebook!

I have finally joined Facebook and started a fan page for my jewellery. I'd be happy if you fan my page! I will probably be updating the fan page more frequently than this blog, mainly with pictures of new jewellery and possibly with specials and offers.

Autumn Gold Earrings The earrings above are the newest addition in my Etsy shop. They are a symphony of the highest grade gemstone beads in lovely warm autumn colours: Citrine, Hessonite garnet and Almadine garnet with gold filled wire.

I'm still here...

I have been neglecting this poor blog the last couple of weeks. My plan was (if you remember) to post once a week, on my creative Fridays. Well, we have had visitors, birthdays and other events that have stood in the way of my posting. What a sad excuse!

So, what have I been up to? I've sold at an annual local craft fair, Mullhyttemarken. This was the fourth year for me, and it went moderately well. I got to see some nice people, and sold some of my newer designs. There's a picture of my booth in my Flickr photostream.

Meanwhile, my cuff links are featured in a blogpost about birthstone jewellery by Yazmin at A Pretty Rock! It's a good read if you'd like to know more about birthstones in jewellery. I also wrote a very brief post about this a while back, which you can read here.

This Friday I finally got back to the work bench, and finished these large hook earrings with labradorite. They are available in my Etsy shop.

Romantic Rose Quartz Earrings

I haven't been blogging much the last weeks, as I've been busy with other things. Last week, for example, I cleaned up my work area and unpacked new tools, including some very nice texturising hammers. This Friday is shorter than usual, since we are going away for the weekend. But I wanted to show you these earrings before I leave - they are a part of my Wedding Collection in my Swedish webshop. If you'd like to buy them, you can either get them there or ask me to list them for you at Etsy.
