A sparkly treasure

I hardly dare tell you, because you will probably shake your head and exclaim, not again, surely not again! I'll whisper it, shall I? I entered a giveaway over at Jeanie's blog, and yes, I won her giveaway! I was so delighted, I really was, because the beautiful gift she was offering in her giveaway was a gorgeous sparkly bracelet. I love making jewellery bits and pieces, but I have to admit that I don't have much patience when it comes to proper beading, I am more the kind of string-it girl. But I admire people who can bead those wonderfully intricate patterns, and Jeanie is most definitely one of them. When you visit her blog, do click on the link to her jewellery creations, you'll be amazed at what she can do with teeny beads.

Here is the sparkling beauty which arrived on my doorstep -

I love that shade of blue, it is stunning, and the sparkle is quite amazing, but I couldn't quite capture it in the photos. It looks fabulous when I wear it, and the sparkles it throws off when it moves, just makes me smile.

Thank you so much, Jeanie, it is a beautiful piece of jewellery, and I know it will give me so much pleasure every time I wear it.
