Beads Glorious Beads

Before Easter me and my friend Sirisha (one of the people responsible for my rediscovered love of all things crafty) went to a beading workshop at The Bead Shop in Nottingham. If you live in the East Midlands (or even if you don't, as they do a mail order service!) and have even a passing interest in beads and jewellery making, i would highly recommend a visit. The workshop was was a whole day job, and a lovely lady called Rachel taught us how to make a wide variety of items including earrings, bracelets and necklaces. See the selection below...all this was made in one day!

I had so much fun, it was really good to learn a new skill and we came away with lots of lovely jewellery and the skills to make more at home, which was really satisfying. They do all sorts of workshops so i think I'll definitely be going back for more.

I hope you all had a great Easter and enjoyed the sunshine (in the UK at least!) while it lasted! Now to get caught up with the Crescent Skirt Sew-Along....

  1. hello!

    just a little response to your car boot query!
    we normally go to saddington which is near kibworth. alterantively croft is good, but on a sunny day, gets REALLY busy, which can have good and bad benefits!

  2. Lovely Kat!!! I particularly love the green bracelet and the set featured in your third picture down. Looks like it was a very productive day!

  3. Kat these are so cute. I dabble in a bit of jewerlly making now and again, it's fun isn't it. I like the green bracelet too.

  4. Thank you all so much! I think my favourite is the green bracelet too. I had so much fun making everything, and i'm really pleased they turned out so well!

  5. They're all gorgeous! I really enjoy jewellery making too. Shame I can't get to a work shop. I'm still getting the hang of those pesky crimp beads! lol
