One more little star... and ta-daaaaa!

No. 2 from my New Year's Bead Resolutions was to pick up multiples of the birthstone zodiac stars whilst there were still some available to find.  I have to say that this has been one of my best ideas yet; I've used so many of these stars as multiples on bracelets that I really do wonder how I managed without them!

I had one more star left to find to make up my second set, it was Leo, and I didn't actually find it, my dear troll friend who send me the lovely liquorice and Scottish tea-time recipe book found this one.  So my last star was sent to me by a friend, a lovely way to complete my second set of stars.  Fitting that it was the orange one as that is her favourite colour too!

So that is the second set complete, I really do love this set of silver beads... twice over!


  1. Love the turquoise ones,and the tigers eye ones x

  2. The tigers eye ones are interesting, they are both very different and my latest one I kept thinking was loose and falling off but it's the way the variation in it catches your eye that makes it look as if it's moving, quite disconcerting when you think you're losing a stone!

    I love this set, now if only I could get a set of 2009 China silvers...
