Happy April!

We've been having some wonderful summery weather here in London and that. combined with me making plans for this summer's Secret Beadalong has really got me in a sunshine mood (ignoring the fact that 5 minutes ago it just started pouring with rain of course!)

It seems a long way away but today I'm launching my Summer 2017 Secret Beadalong and I'm sure that before we realise it will be here and we'll all be beading along together. All the information needed is below.

I'm working away like mad at the moment on 5 new kits which will launch next month at The Great British Bead Show, where I'll have a stand on the Sunday. Then they'll be available with me at The Heart of Texas Bead Retreat in June before launching on my website in July. I'll be bringing you a sneak peek of them next month in my May newsletter.

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

Secret Beadalong

It's time for another Secret Beadalong!

My Summer 2017 beadalong will take place between the 29th July and 4th August (covering part of National Beading Week) but can be beaded at any time after that.

Each day will take around 1-2 hours beading to complete and there will be some preparation beading needed beforehand (instructions for this will be sent out in June). The requirements list (which will be sent out in May) is not complicated and only contains items you should easily be able to find.

The project is designed for all levels of beader and has brand new components and design ideas perfect to offer something new to more advanced beaders.

If you own a bead shop, or are part of a bead group, and would like to join in, or just would like to devote a single day to the project, please contact me.

This pattern is available at a 50% discount to my Newsletter subscribers (please enter the code under 'Pattern Discount Code' below).

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 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).
