Pewter and Pearls

When it comes to jewellery I like simple pieces with meaning behind them (although the bloggers beads necklace was not simple at all!!!).  I have been collecting some beautiful but tiny freshwater pearls in hues of greens and blues and also some nature themed pewter charms.

The first thing I made was this stretch bracelet in shades of the sea and a summer sky.  I added three lime green pearls to bring attention to the beautiful honey bee and remind me of the fresh greens of springtime.  The honey bee represents nature and that hard work reaps rewards (gathering pollen to make honey).

Talking of bees, I may get the opportunity to train as a bee keeper in the near future.  I am looking forward to the prospect of  harvesting the honey to spread on my toast!

Such beautiful colours!
Looking forward to drooling over your homemade honey then :)

Beautiful bracelet, I love the bee. I'm fascinated by beehives and bees. It would be very interesting to learn to be a bee keeper, so I look forward to hearing all about it if you decide to become one!

Such a pretty little bracelet Simone, enjoy wearing it.

Aren't you lucky with the Bees? I hope it goes well for you.

Sweet and simple. Love those colors and that little bee. So excited that you're going to get to train to be a beekeeper! I'd love to do that!

That's a very sweet little bracelet ... they're my favourite colours.
Good luck with your bee keeping. Our neighbour keeps bees and produces honey. Sadly, it's not for me, I don't like honey, and I get frightened when the bees swarm!

What a lovely bracelet this is, Simone. Learning to be a beekeeper would be so interesting! Have you seen "The Secret Life of Bees"? I loved that movie.

So pretty Simone, and gorgeous colour pearls. I love bees, and can't wait to have the honey variety buzzing around the garden again. x
