Well my frustration and annoyance continues - I am still not back online with my Leandra Holder website. A hacker managed to wreck my site between Christmas and the New Year and the long process of rebuilding continues. Apart from the fact it is the way I earn my living, I also hadn't realised how much a part of my daily routine it was - checking for sales and checking that all was well and functioning on my site. There'll be changes coming when my site is up and running again - and not just increased security! I plan to concentrate much more on the art side. I will be buying far less of the components like beads and charms - and plan to make far more of these myself. Which means that once the site is functioning I will be having a massive sale of all the items that no longer fit into this criteria. I will give you all a week's notice before the grand sale starts - so don't worry, you will not miss out. Thanks so much to you all for the many messages of support I have received since my website was hacked - it means a lot to me that so many of you are missing your daily fix of trawling through my website. I'll be back soon, so don't go away! peace and love Leandra x

This unique and lovely hand painted by Leandra Holder wooden bangle has a "gypsy" caravan feel to it and is studded with extremely large sparkly Swarovski crystal rhinestones. The bangle was sprayed 3 times to achieve the base colour, then the flowers were hand painted, then the Swarovski rhinestones were embedded into the bracelet with strong epoxy resin glue. The final touch was two layers of crystal clear varnish painted carefully around the crystals. AVAILABLE - £79.99 including worldwide insured postage and beautiful gift wrapping. Contact me through my blog or my facebook page if you are interested.

Hello everybody - thanks for reading my blog - it's the only way you can see my new creations at the moment as my website was hacked between Christmas and the New Year and the swines left it unuseable. I've changed to a more secure server now, so hopefully it won't happen again. But my site is having to be rebuilt, practically from scratch - so it's a very busy time for my tecky man and myself (not to mention expensive!) I'll put as many pieces on here as I can until my site is functioning again - so if there's anything you want contact me through my facebook page. Hope you all have a happy, healthy and wealthy 2010! peace and love Leandra xxx
