2014 Teacher Thank You Gifts


Well today is my eldest son’s last ever day at Primary School, but there will be no tears only excitement looking forward to big school.  It’s surprising where time goes, because I still see the little boy who was terrified to be left at school for the first time, anyhow, instead of reminiscing I shall share the pictures of the gifts I have made for all the teachers.

Bracelets for the ladies…


And everyone including teaching assistants gets a bookmark made using my very own Black Flower Creative stamps, watch this space for more information coming soon.


The smaller owl in the range has interchangeable eyes…..





…albeit here I only used a clock and the plain eye……what other options could there be?

All will become clear soon.

Thanks for visiting.

Here are some more bracelets today using my quickly diminishing stash of treasures.


I like that every item is individual and different from the last, albeit similar.

I take pleasure in the planning and placement of the beads first to ensure there are sufficient to complete the design.  It’s like a puzzle finding the best usage of the beads and “hey presto” the design and the technique is decided for me.

It is also very therapeutic to do … until a dog swipes all the beads with his or her tail.  I know as I have repeatedly had the pleasure of retrieving all the beads.

See you again soon.

Hello again.

As promised here are some more creations using my beloved stash of beads.


And yes…. like the last lot I want to keep these too. Must make more!!!!

The soft colour tones in the beads make them a very adaptable piece of jewellery and I do like an accent bead or two.

More coming soon.
