Folksy Friday - St Patrick's Day

Hello everyone, it feels like such a long time since I have been here but I think its only been a week!

Anyway, on with this weeks Folksy Friday.  I was browsing the internet the other day when it dawned on me that next week is St Patrick's Day, 17th March (which is a Thursday) so I decided to make a couple of brooches, one a shamrock and one a lucky 4 leaf clover for the run up to this day and this got me wondering what else those clever crafty folk on Folksy had to offer.  I posted pictures of my brooches in the forums and opened it up to everyone with the question 'What have you got to offer for St Patrick's Day?'

Below is what I was usual, click on the picture to see that item in more detail or click on the shop name to see what else they have to interest you.

Landscape Cushion Malachite Sterling Silver Ring
Clootielugs and Unique Beaded Gems

(apparently the shade of green glass used for this pendant was funnily enough called Leprechaun!) 

There we go, St Patrick's Day, the Emerald Isle and green and if anyone is buying mine will be a pint or two of the black stuff, cheers.
