WOYWW - More Bits and Pieces

Here I am back again, having missed last week. I am really enjoying the stuff, but putting off Christmas so far!!! Welcome to my desk, and I hope to visit many of you this week. For those of you who don't know what we are on about, please visit the wonderful blog of Julia at Stamping Ground.

I have been making some key fob and handbags thingies and you can see them altogether above. These are the first ones, so I am making like crazy because the Christmas Fayre is happening next week, at my daughter's school, and I am having a table, hoping to sell some of my jewellery and these fobs... the staff is already interested so I might not get to the public!!! Hope also to get some orders, well, we'll see...

 This one has a rough theme of time... so clock, sun, moon and stars etc. I made the pink beads from clay and threaded them with gold coloured metal ones to complement the gold leaf which was embedded in the mix.
 This one is flowers, shells and fish. I used clear beads to echo the idea of water. The tag is stamped on the back. The picture is from a Crafty Individuals pad.

This one is very vibrant, mostly tourquise beads and friendly plastic. The back of that heart has a picture of a marriage and a lock and key to the hearts finishes off the piece. I hope the people like them... What do YOU think???

 Here is the beginnings of another project - keys and cogs etc ready to start a steampunk bracelet, threaded on the circles chain... Below are the bags of goodies, ready to take for sale next week. I just have to decide on a way to display my stuff, as I have never done anything like this before!!

 Off to finish off another fob, with leaves and insects. Then to post my tag for the TIO challenge on my DragonsDream blog... had a couple of great pressies lately, so if you entered last time, keep a look out for the winner!!

For table top, what about bento boxes or some types of trays with compartments, either food or for mixing paints?

These are gorgeous, Frankie. I think they'll go brilliantly at your fayre. I'd certainly be first in the queue if I lived nearby.
I love the time one.
Lovely to see you back.
