Handmade Monday: More poppies and Autumn colour

As it gets closer to remembrance day, I keep getting new ideas for poppy jewellery.  This week it's chain maille again.  The little poppies that make up the links take a while to do, so getting seven together for the length of the bracelet and earrings was quite a challenge.  In a way, it's a good job it was quiet in the shop this week, despite me listing a few new bag charms.

Apart from that, we've had this stunning Autumn weather, with the colours so fabulous and the sun shining on them like the middle of the summer. The park looked amazing the other day.

 Christmas themes are starting to creep in to my makes:

Isn't he cool?  I added the little daisies because the contrast between his size and theirs just seemed right!

and the stars always remind me of singing children's carols at school.

I've been working on my website too.  All will be revealed soon...

Here's the link to see what others have been making this week.

Have a great week,

  1. Pretty bracelet and earrings it looks a complicated pattern, the red beads give it a bit of zing. Havn't we had a lovely autumn this year.

  2. Aww i love your poppies, i think they're on everyone's mind just now aren't they.

    Your festive charms look fantastic too, i love the little bit of sparkle in the stars :)

    Autumn has been especially beautiful this year hasn't it, so perfect for lovely walks x

  3. Your local park looks really lovely. The poppies look great. A lot of work there.

  4. Wow that bracelet looks amazing and very tricky too. I am loving all the autumnal colours at the moment too.

  5. Love the pendant with the stars and what a pretty poppy set :)

  6. You create such lovely designs. They look amazing!

  7. Very pretty bracelet. I've not made chain maille in ages I find it too fiddly and to slow growing. Anita
