Happy March!

I can't believe 2017 is already 1/6th gone, it seems to be flying away so quickly - or maybe it's just me getting old!
Fortunately we had a very mild Winter here in London and, with the exception of Storm Doris last week and al the hail storms since then, we've even had some wonderfully sunny days where you can go out without a coat already - roll on Summer!

Thank you to everyone who has sent me kind feedback on the free Love Beading projects I've been sharing, it's always lovely to hear about how you're using them. If you want to join in and bead something for someone you love then you can find them on my patterns page and under the 'show filter options' button you can choose either 'free' or 'love beading'. I'm hoping to add to the patterns very soon but with racing along working on 2 new books and already trialling items for this years Summer and Christmas beadalong my beading time is pretty jam-packed at the moment.

I'm pleased this month to be launching a new pattern: my Elica Necklace and have details of new class dates for this year and some more book news.

So until next month, and more exciting reveals, best wishes and happy beading

p.s. In between newsletters you can always see what I'm up to on my Instagram or Facebook page

Elica Necklace

If you love CRAW then you'll love this!

My new Elica Necklace pattern combines a bold floral design with small beads and a sparkling 14mm Rivoli to create a unique, variable pendant which hangs on a co-ordinating ornate rope.
The pendant can be made with 4 or 5 petals and the rope can use bicones, pearls or rounds to make a beautiful piece which is lovely worn on its own.

This is an advanced project which uses small beads but works up relatively quickly so you can be wearing it soon.

The pattern is available here for £10 and you can use the discount code (see further on for info) to receive 20% off.

Launched Last Month

Launched in February, and following on from the Flower Pin Set I launched back in December, my Geometric Pin Set is designed to help you make geometric, colourful, interchangeable jewellery.

The idea is that you create your own unique, geometric beadwork which can be worn behind the pins and then removed, swapped or added to whenever you want a change.

Each set comes with 3 pins: 2 triangles and a square.
Each has a unique geometric design in black and white and the triangles also have some subtle, sparkly grey glitter added.
Their monochrome colouring means you can use any colour of bead to mix-and-match for the look you desire.
The pins even look great worn by themselves!

Included, when you purchase:

  • 3 hand-coloured hard enamel plated pins (each pin is packed separately on its own backing card and in its own bag so you can split the set if wanted)
  • 2 backs for each pin - a regular back and a plastic back so you can use your favourite
  • An instant download of the instructions to make the beadwork
  • A jewellery box to store the pins and beadwork in
  • Signed & tracked postage World-wide
These pins are available for just £29 for the set but you can use the newsletter discount code to get £2 off whilst stocks last (this discount now applies to the remainder of the Flower Pin Sets also).

Book News

A year in Rivolis

For a very long time now I've been secretly working behind the scenes on a new Rivolis based book and now its pages pages are slowly coming together.
I've already begun sharing advanced copies of the instructions with purchasers of My Favourite Rivolis Collection (they also get a free digital version of the book).

It's been huge fun working with so many sparkling crystals and coming up with unique and new ideas & projects to fill the pages - and I'm looking forward to beginning to share them with you over the coming months.

Geometric Beadwork Books

Following on from last month my stocks of Geometric Beadwork and Geometric Beadwork Volume Two are now down to less than 5 of each and over the next few days I will be moving the books over to 'print on demand' so, whilst they'll still be available to purchase, they won't come directly from me and therefore no signatures or personal messages will be able to be included.
Also the books won't be the same format as previously (they will be different sizes and on different paper) so if you want a matching set then please make sure you purchase them ASAP while I still have stock.

The good news about this is that it will make it easier for your local bead or book shop around the World to stock them and, as they'll be sold through CreateSpace/ Amazon, you'll be able to more easily ask friends and family to buy them for you!
