The rules are:
1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog. 2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by including links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.
Ok, so I have to tag 7 people in return, well I guess the buck stops here.
I think everyone I know has been tagged already, and I`m sure they found it hard enough to think of 7 things!!
7 facts about me? Hmmmm.......
1. I believe in what goes around comes around, karma & fate.
2. I am Vegetarian
3. I have a benign essential tremor in my hands (a teeny weeny shake which gets worse if I get stressed) which is why my beads are chunky and not very intricate - stringer work is a no no!
4. I love music and go to Leeds festival every year.
5. I am a Qualified Veterinary Nurse
6. I never want kids, cats are a perfect 'substitute'.
7. I believe Steve Coogan is a comedy genius.
Well thats it! Fallen asleep yet??!!

They have a butterscotch and turquoise yummy vibe going on, encased in clear. Boro beads look much darker when seen in indoor lighting, this photo was taken outside.
I bought a few rods of the TAG Purple sable, which not surprisingly didnt turn out too great! Nevermind.... Rome wasnt built in a day and all that! Although, when I annealed them again in the kiln last night (well I wasnt going to lose much was I?!) I was pretty chuffed to say the least. the blues had become much more vibrant and there were now even pinky amber tones coming through. this glass is amazing! Can`t say I`m in love with it yet - it takes a massive amount of skill - I am totally in awe of what the pros can do!
(Believe me its not just the lighting!)
If you would like to know more about borosilicate glass please visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borosilicate_glass - it is massively detailed and more than you ever need to know.
From a lampworking beady point of view it is much harder to work with in the flame (imagine REALLY hard toffee rather than syrup) but can produce amazing earthy beads with fantastic colours. Oh yeah and the glass is much more expensive!

Perfect for brides to have a lasting memory of their special day.
A Glass bottle from a customer’s Wedding day can be turned it into beautiful jewellery, whether it is a pair of earrings or a charm bracelet which can be added to as the years go by, the bespoke jewellery will remind a bride of her special day.
‘The order book is fizzing with requests from new Brides, Brides-to-be, Bridesmaids, new Mother`s in Laws, even Grooms!’
The new collection is proving to be an instant hit with brides. A few customers have started to collect bottles from every wedding anniversary which will in time create a bracelet full of happy little recycled beady memories.
The range is also perfect for other special occasions such as Valentines, an Award Ceremony, Anniversary, or holiday to name just a few! I am not limited to Champagne bottles, your favourite red or white wine will create stunning jewellery too.
‘Surprise your new Husband with a pair of cufflinks made with his favourite lager or beer bottle!’
During a Bridal Evening in York with Celebrity stylist Bradley Taylor, Clare`s new concept in jewellery technique & design was highly praised.
Clare creates unique handcrafted beads from glass using the age old art of lampworking. This involves manipulating glass over an oxygen and propane fuelled torch in her studio. Clare works with 925 Sterling Silver and her unique glass beads to create stunning and individual designs.
‘Each bead is truly unique. That is the fascination of handcrafted art’
Prices Start From £50 - any design in my collection can be used.

They have such boggly little eyes, knobbles on their spine and lumpy feet. Infact they look just like real baby dinosaurs.... hmmmm, well nearly :)
They are ornaments - far too fragile to be used as a bead.
