What a week!
This week has been the busiest ever for Sprinkles Sparkles Online! I have had sales on MISI and Sprinkles Sparkles Online, and I also launched Sprinkles Beads!

After launching Sprinkles Beads late Thursday evening, I had woken up to a sale Friday morning! Woohoo!
Stock on the site is very limited at the moment. I am waiting on new beads and findings to arrive, photograph it all, then add it to the site. Hopefully it will all be added by March!

Today we went to the Apple store in London's Regent Street.

Image from wiki
We had booked an appointment to get Twisty's iPhone looked at, my iPod touch and mac fixed.
All a total waste of time.
  1. The iPhone was out of warrenty to be replaced
  2. 'apparently' there is nothing wrong with my iPod touch - sods law it blimmen worked while I was there, and
  3. there is a 5 - 6 week wait on mac repairs... I wasn't even going to consider leaving my computer with them for that amount of time! Thankfully, my mac isn't ill, its just a cosmetic issue. The case has split all over, and I would like it replaced.  
Oh well, it was a day out, although absolutely exhausting!

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Finally finished!

I have finally finished the first of three flower petal watches. This watch has taken me a few days to complete as both of my thumbs have been playing up, and it was too painful to carry on and complete on Monday. But today I finished it!

It is part of 'The Petal Collection' and is made from green and brown glass pearls, green and clear lucite petals and leaves, with boheimun green and crystal bicones. The watch face is green, and fully working!
It matches the green and brown flower petal bracelet, earrings, and bookmark, that are all available on Sprinkles Sparkles Online, MISI, Folksy, Etsy and Groovycart!

I'm in an Etsy Treasury!

While I was watching 'Pop Star to Opera Star' this evening, I felt in an inspirational mood, so I went on over to the Etsy treasuries to have a look at some collections.

We all do it don't we... we click through the all the pages to see if we are featured! I do anyway, and I KNOW you do too! Don't deny it.. haha!

And there It was.. the little yellow star on the list!

.. and here is the Treasury itself. My Pink and Purple Petal Flower Leaf Bracelet was featured!

The treasury was put together by albenaben - so thank you!

If you like the look of this bracelet, it is also available on MISI and Sprinkles Sparkles Online!

Tomorrow, I will be posting about my new Garnet Gemstone and Swarovski Crystal Necklace!

Until then! Tata

Red Striped Agate Pendant Necklace

I was chatting away to Anna (The Crystal Lady) on MSN today, and we got talking about the colour amber!

Anna is feeling very attracted to the colour at the moment even though never being particularly attached to it, but I have never been attracted to the yellows, topaz's and citrines.

At the time, I was getting my odd beads and my pendants out that I have left. I was putting them on my bead board, and look what happened!
Red Striped Agate Pendant Necklace

I ended up making this stunning topaz swarovski crystal necklace, with a red striped agate pendant with black onyx gemstones and black glass beads! And I actually like it!

You can find out more about this pendant necklace on MISI!

Hope your all well!
