A blast of colour!


Although it's December, I've decided against a wintry theme and instead have gone for gorgeous explosions of colour! All these beautiful charms were hand-painted and sealed with resin by the uber-talented Suhana Hart.

First up, these glorious hearts! The detail on these is just beautiful. I used oxidised brass hoops as a base, chrysocolla rondelles and some pretty oxidised black chain at the front.

Next up -these fantastic painted fiery daggers. Love the colour of these. However, making them involved much swearing. Quite a lot of expletives. Sorry. 

First, I started with a brass triangle frame. Then added some co-ordinating seed beads to match with the colours Suhana used in these charms, and added some pieces of filigree brass chain (lots of expletives at this point). Finally, some beautiful cerise lampwork spacers to finish these dangly boho beauties. 

The final pair, I'm hiding at the end, as they are a birthday gift for a fab friend's significant birthday! I don't think she reads this blog, so I'm safe...Beautiful circular charms with pretty purple, green and pink lotus flower patterns on double brass hoops, with African silver spacers and semi-precious rondelles (I've forgotten what these are! But they are from Sylvia Stungo's shop).
Hope you've enjoyed all the colour. These beauties (apart from the last pair!) will be available in my shop. I'll be back in a couple of weeks :-)

  1. You’ve taken them to another level, absolutely gorgeous!! All that swearing was definitely worth it 😂

  2. Oh yes, in the winter I can use colors, the more the better. These are all brilliant Sue. And what a wonderful birthday gift.

  3. Wow wow wow these are fabulous mrs, I do love your mixes xx

  4. Oh, Sue, they're all just beautiful! Suhana's components are stunning, and I love how you've designed with them, each an original. xo

  5. We can all use a dose of color in the winter! These are each spectacular in their explosion of color and pattern. I am drawn most to the triangles as that is my favorite shape. Enjoy the day! Erin
