New Work by the Mouse...

Matt turquoise seed beads surrounded by sparkling silver, this is one of my favourites. So simple, yet so elegant. The pattern is a traditional one and can be found in 'Indian Beadweaving' by Duncan Goodhue.

'Heart and Soul' is a delicate slave bracelet made using a basic raw stitch, ebellished with crystals and a lacy silver coloured charm.

The next two pieces are not new, but I thought it would be nice to show photographs of them actually being worn. My youngest daughter, Marika, took part in a drama summer school and some of my jewellery was used in their performance of an original play 'I Died on the Titanic'.
