Goldstone Fusion Bracelet and Cat Card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a couple of projects to show you :-) First of all I will start with a bracelet I made with some of my favourite beads. I love Goldstone and Blue Goldstone and just came across these wonderful fusion of both in little 6mm beads-a perfect bridge to tie my Gold and Blue Goldstone beads together! :-) I used a magnetic clasp, clear bicones, Goldstone 8mm beads, Fusion beads 6mm, and Faceted Blue Goldstone 8mm beads.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Next is a card I made, I drew the cats myself so it took me a while longer than a usual card! 
I drew one then traced it onto a fresh sheet of card, and flipped it to make sure each cat was symmetrical. I then coloured them with black promarkers to make them silhouettes. I paired these with Sarah Hurley 'Be Mine' papers, black and blue cardstock, jewelled embellishments and a sentiment I printed from serif software.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
