Jewellery, Florentines and the Olympic Torch

Me again!
I've had a bit of a jewellery making phase recently and here are the makes, I've shared the button bracelets and necklaces on other posts but here's the rest. My dearest friend Sarah asked me to make her a bracelet to match an outfit she'd brought for a wedding and gave me 2 weeks notice to design, order beads, make and get it to her (eek!)
So here is the Black and Magenta charm bracelet I made for her and I couldn't resist making a matching necklace and earrings for her, (even though she had brought something to match already).

I also brought these lovely wooden discs to make a bracelet. I love them and I've worn it a few times already.

I've had a bit of a baking fad recently and to be specific Florentines. My friend gave me a lovely recipe for Cherry and Coconut ones and I've had fun making a few batches. They are morelike a tray bake than a traditional round thin Florentine, but very yummy indeed. Percy pocket bug popped by to snaffle a crumb or two.

I took the kids down to see the Olympic Torch when it passed through our town last week. It was very exciting to see it even if I did make the children wait 2 hours on a park bench! We didn't see all the sponsor convoy but we saw the torch and also a hand over that happened a bit down from us. I'm full of pride to be British at the moment. I've never worn so much red, white and blue and I just love that I've been able to witness once in a lifetime events like the Torch and the Diamond Jubilee.

Well that's it for now and I'll fill you in on my biscornu swap later in the week. Hope you are all enjoying your bank holiday weekend. K. x


  1. Lovely jewellery especially the big wooden disc bracelet. Sounds like a gorgeous day out to see the torch, glad you all enjoyed it.
    happy hugs

  2. LOve the jewellery, you have a lucky friend there :-)

    Those florentines look gorgeous too, do they last long as I'm thinking they would disappear rather quickly round here!

    Have fun with the Jubilee :-)
