Adventures in Beading

On alternate Wednesdays I’m going to be keeping you all up to date with my lessons and stuff with beading. 

I’ve been doing a little bit of Halloween beading.  Including the bracelet I made and entered in the Hobbycraft Make of the Month competition:

And these:


But mostly I’ve been starting work on my Christmas stock.  I’m signed up to do two Christmas fairs, so I’m going to need lots and lots of stock.  I’ve made a whole bunch of charm bangles:


(That’s just a sample).  These sold really well at the summer fete I did, so I’m going to have a lot prepared – I’m waiting on some more charms from the Far East.

And I’ve made a few more pairs of earrings to add to the supply I already have, but I do need to make even more of those.

There’s a Halloween beading project I’ve been working on that’s semi in-depth too, but he’ll be getting his very own blog post 🙂
