Cherry blosson and jewellery display

A short post for today.

First some cherry blossom from a neighbour’s garden. I love cherry blossom, and the weather forecast is for some strong winds, so I took the opportunity to photograph it for Project 365 before it is all blown away.

My Show and Tell this week is my Mother’s Day gift from my kids (which was last Sunday here in UK). As I was shopping with my daughter in my favourite shop Avoca when I spied it, it was hardly a surprise when I received it, but I love it!

I love that it is tall, so my necklaces can hang down without trailing on my dressing table, and they don’t get so tangled with each other.

All the jewellery shown on the stand I have made at my jewellery evening class at the local arts centre. I have completed 7 weeks now, and I really enjoy it. Every week as well as learning a new technique we create a new piece of jewellery to wear.

For more Show and Tell visit Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home.

  1. Love those cherry blossoms! nice stand for the necklaces…just make sure they don’t get a ‘kink’ in the wire/line…do you bead?

  2. I love the necklace stand and the necklaces hanging from it even more! You’ve made some really cute things! 🙂 You might have inspired me to find a beading class around here! Something else to do in all of my “spare time!” 🙂 he he he

    I have a jewellery tree like this too – only mines MUCH bigger, sweeping over two feet haha, I’m a Claire’s girl.

    My sister bought the prettiest hangar – it looked like a lady.

    A friend of mine just gave me two cherry trees. I planted them last week. Can’t wait to see the beautiful blooms. Doubtful that they’ll bloom anytime soon.
    Nice way to display your necklaces.

    Cherry Blossoms are so pretty. As a child I lived in Japan and cherry blossoms were ereywhere and so beautiful when they bloomed. What a wonderful and useful gift. Wish I had one to end an always tangled mess. Thanks for sharing.

  8. That cherry blossom photo is great! The cherry trees where we live are in bloom and are just gorgeous!!
    Your jewelry and stand are lovely, too!

    ooooooooh, I love cherry blossoms! My biggest regret on our trip to Washington DC last year was that we arrived too late to see the cherry blossoms in bloom. They are simply gorgeous.

  13. I love Avoca and nearly always go to the one near my daughter when I visit her. I can never afford to buy much but I love looking and they do lovely scones and cakes to go with the coffee.
