I have just been up to London with my daughter, staying with an old friend who lives on the outskirts.

We had a great, if rather hectic time partly due to the extremely hot weather. One of our first calls is Covent Garden and environs it is always fun with lots to see and do. The Camden Markets are another stop for us as Lara shops at Cyberdog and we have a few favourite sellers we tend to visit both of us spent too much a rareity for me I might add!
We had an evening at the theatre with our friends, The Lady Killers a new offering of an old film, it was a comedy and gave us all a laugh.

We had booked for the Pompeii & Herculaneum Exhibition at The British Museum it was excellent and gave a great insight to the times and happenings but the museum always does its exhibitions so well. Then as we had not been to the Natural History Museum for a number of years we went there another day then on to the V&A where we had tickets for Fashion of the Eighties which Lara wanted to see.

We did fit in a few other things and I have some photos to go through when I get time later in the week there may even be something worth showing, but until then I will just put a couple of pictures of some jewellery I made recently.

A handflower in freshwater pearls with gold beads and Swarovski crystals. 

Beautiful freshwater pearls rubies and emeralds set in silver.

I just won the most innovative class in a bracelet contest I am rather pleased and thought I would share the cuff bracelet I made for it with you. It is made from Polymer with beautiful little freshwater pearls and vintage Swarovski crystals.
I named it Spring into Summer!
