Two-sided triangle thingies!

Still on my geometric phase, I recently completed a necklace featuring a chain of nine two-sided triangles (I'm sure there's a mathematical name for that but it eludes me!).  I've always liked featuring black in my designs particularly as a background colour as it seems to make the colours more intense.
The necklace is one complete piece of beading - no joins - just increasing and decreasing at regular intervals. To add some interest I off set each new triangle making them sit at an angle to each other.
Hope you like...

I'm really busy at the moment replenishing my stock.
I'm drawn to geometry so I'm loving playing around with triangles, pentagons and hexagons either interlocking or independent.
I recently bought some 'citrusy' colours (limes and yellows) as an alternative to blues and purples.  I'm never sure what colour combinations people like so I'd love some comments from you as to what your favourites are!

Hope you like...

Memory Star

Recently my best friend's dad passed away.
I wanted to make her a piece of jewellery as a keepsake.
Her Dad was a born entertainer and a real star so I thought it only too fitting to make this 3D star pendant.
When I make these stars I usually stuff them with clingfilm to give it stability.  This time, however, I wrote, on a tiny piece of paper, his name and date of birth and death and sewed it inside the pendant.
I was really touched that my friend wore it to his funeral.

Hope you like....

RIP 'Number One' x
