Happy June!

I've had a lovely busy month and it's been so much fun to see the excitement since the launch of this years Secret Beadalong.
There are now over 400 people signed up, through me or local groups & shops, and I'm already looking forward to seeing all the finished pieces. Read on for more up-to-date news and details.

I am also excited this month to launch a brand new very limited-edition kit for my new Caroline Necklace along with a set of instructions to make all the variations in the Caroline Necklace Series. This set of projects has been a work in progress since 2009 and it was only the discovery that the focal crystals used in the main necklace have been discontinued that spurred me on to finishing the piece (hence the limited supply of kits that will be available). But don't fear, I have come up with 4 different variations that use different stones (but sadly aren't reversible like the original) and the pattern for all of them is now available.
As an added bonus the instructions are being sent for free to everyone who purchased one of the My Favourite Rivolis Collection so they have no excuse not to dive in and use some of the wonderful rivolis rather than just drool over them!

I have lots of classes coming up over the next couple of months, and some of these are the last dates ever planned for these classes, so do check out the dates below and I hope to see you at one of them.

So until next month, and lots of exciting new things... best wishes and happy beading

p.s. you can always keep an eye on where I am and what I'm up to using my Instagram or my Facebook page

CRAW Ropes Class
If you like CRAW then you’ll love this class!

Over the day you’ll learn lots of exclusive variations on CRAW ropes and then variations on those… leaving you with lots of new possibilities to add to your beadwork and even how to bead an s-hook clasp to finish your work off perfectly.

This class has dates in June at Moths Crafts, Bungay, Norfolk (the 16th) and Medway Beaders in Chatham, Kent (the 25th).

Tretze Necklace Class
This sparkling Tretze pendant unites peyote stitch with Swarovski crystals to dramatic effect.
The pendant is endlessly variable as to the shape you want to create and the number and size of rivolis you want to add around the centre large sparkling crystal.
The pendants is strung on 1-3 strands of co-ordinating CRAW chain with a beaded s-hook clasp so you can vary the look each time you wear it.

This class is being taught on the 8th July at StitchnCraft Beads
