Welcome to 2016!

2015 seemed to fly by in a flash and now here we are with a whole new year ahead of us.

I love the new year with all its promise of exciting changes and the unknown, but it can often be a time when we we're hard on ourselves and set too high targets we'll never meet. So this year I have decided to not restrict myself with any 'I must not' or 'I need to stop' resolutions but instead my resolution for 2016 is 'MORE!'
I hope to have more of everything I loved this year: more colour, more fun & laughter, more sleep, more time with friends & family, more travel to see all my beady friends, more designing and of course more beading.

These images are some of my favourite of those I took in 2015 and I think they sum up what I'm hoping for over the next 12 months.

What do you want more of in 2016?

Of course part of doing more beading and designing means more patterns and kits and though I have nothing new to bring you this month I am having a sale on my Beaded Frames kit with each variation having £10 off the price when you use the discount code, see below for more details.

With a new year comes a new pattern code for my individual patterns and this year is no different so also see below in 'Pattern discount code' for the code that will give you 20% off.

So until February and lots of exciting new things... best wishes, happy beading and a happy New Year!

P.S. Have you seen the results of the Christmas 2015 Secret Beadalong posted on the Facebook page - make sure not to peek if you don't want the surprise spoilt!

Christmas 2015 Secret Beadalong

The beadalong dates may be over but new people are joining each day and with one colour scheme sold out, and another with just a single kit left, you need to act soon if you want to buy one before this never to be repeated, or a pattern, kit is all gone
I had such fun in December seeing lots of the secret ornaments begin to appear and then be hung on trees around the world.
But of course not everyone gets a chance to bead at the same time and as with all of my beadalongs the project is always ongoing.
The kits themselves are selling every day and I have just one left in one colourway (jet) and a handful in silver so if you are considering purchasing one please act soon.
In addition, after many requests, I now have a 'refill' pack which contains all the crystals needed for the project in Crystal colour so you can bead your 2nd ornament in the seed and cylinder beads of your choosing.

My Favourite Rivolis

Launched in December this set of 100 x 14mm rivolis in 50 different colours, all packaged in 50 clear gemstone pots and stored inside a leatherette display case, is ideal if you want to build your rivoli stash or just want to treat yourself to some sparkle!

If you need further convincing of how wondrous this set is then you can see a short video I made whilst packing the crystals here.

As well as many classic and best-selling colours this collection contains all of the rivolis Swarovski have launched since 2014 such as:
  • Blush Rose
  • Crystal Metallic Sunshine
  • Crystal Scarabaeus Green
  • Light Silk
  • Crystal Rose Gold
  • Dark Green Moss
  • Crystal Lilac Shadow
  • Gold Patina
  • Black Patina
  • White Patina
  • Silver Patina
  • Rose Gold Patina
  • Smoky Mauve
  • Crystal Paradise Shine
  • Iridescent Green

Each set costs just £94 (which includes postage Worldwide) and they are available here.

Only 71 of these sets were available for sale (I had to keep one for myself!) and half of them have now gone so be sure to snap yours up soon
