More Blue!

Carrying on with the blue theme – I love these glass earrings. It doesn’t matter to me if they are just glass or lampworked glass. There’s something about them that makes me happy.

Regal Blue

I love the colour of these earrings. I always think the Queen must wear this colour a lot. Not only does it have that cold ethereal look to it but it denotes royalty as well. So she can get it all in one look.

I’m not the Queen – not even in my own home – but I still love these!

Feels Like Winter

These earrings make me think of this time of year…snow(men)?

Who Doesn’t Love Turquoise?

I’ve always loved turquoise. The beautiful colour of it draws my eye to any piece of jewelry I see with it in it.

That is why I had to sit down and make a couple pieces.

Here is my first attempt.

I’m Hooked

P8150049 P8150043Pewter Bookhooks

I love books. I’m an avid reader. And with that goes bookmarks. I love them. I have a stash I’ve collected over the years – favourites I use all the time and special ones that I don’t want to mark up with use.

When I read I like to sip a hot cup of tea. I find the whole combination relaxing and soothing.

That brings me to Bookhooks. Being hooked on books and on bookmarks – why not Bookhooks? Being hooked on books, bookmarks and tea – well have a look see……

Going Going – and Gone


I loved this bracelet and thought it would look absolutely fabulous with a pair of jeans and pretty much anything else. Apparently so did a gal who came rafting this past weekend. She tried it on and it never left her hand after that. She almost winced when I took it and put it in a bag for her! It’s a little hard to see in this picture but the bracelet has three strands of those lovely blue and white stones combined with a bit of silver.

On top of that she took these earrings as well. They are simple but different – and of course – green!P4270005

Aching For Amethyst

I love the delicate purple hues of this multi-twist bracelet. The silvered leaf toggle is such a beautiful way to clasp it around your wrist that I am not sure which I like best – the stones or the clasp!

The chandelier ‘earbobs’ only help to finish the look.

What do you think?P4210011

A Little Green Envy

Perhaps it’s because I love the colour green – but of all the pieces I’ve made so far – this bracelet is my favourite.

Have a look.

A Little Time Away Has Kick-started My Creativity Once More

Okay - I'm trying to get back into this and I don't know why I'm choosing the busiest time of my year to do so.

You see - during the summer I help out my brother with his white-water rafting business. I do everything I can to lend him a hand - but I don't guide anymore. Since he built his rafting center I'm the one who has to stay behind and keep it open. Ah well! Anything for my brother - that's how it is.

But - that's not what I wanted this post to be about. I wanted to show you some of the new designs I've been working on.
I think I should have called myself BigBlueBarn Designs - as now I've branched out from knitting and have become interested in making jewellery.

Here's a look at some of my first attempts. Eventually I'll be showing you some of the beads I'm going to make by hand. I decided on going that way once I got into making jewellery as I was still unable to make the statement that was inside me.
Anyway - have a look.P4070033
