Continuing with our celebration of Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th) is this great, chunky Art Stone cab wrapped necklace featuring a Puss n’ Boots cab and czech glass nautilus beads.

In designing jewelry there seems to be so many pieces, like this cabochon, that using a large filigree, to wrap it and create a pendant, just seems like the best fit.

About Me

Newbie Blogger

Hi my name is Gill. I was medically retired at 34 due to a bout of Glandular Fever, which triggered the neuro-immune illness Myalgic Encephomyelitis otherwise known as M.E.  I also suffer from Fibromyalgia and Depression.

To keep myself occupied and sane over the years I am learning to knit and make jewellery. Sadly I am not well enough to make things very often or blog about them, so in the meantime I share and reblog stuff I love by others. From other bloggers with chronic illness to jewellery designers and retailers.  I hope you will enjoy some of my choices and hopefully when I can I will share some of my own thoughts and pictures of things I’ve made.

Thank you for visiting!

I’m the true face of ‘ benefits street ‘. Not those you see on Television or read about in the press. I and many others like me. We’re the True face. I would ask you to look at what the government that you voted for is doing to…
