A Bead Box Full of Colour

Jane had a beading frenzy this week and created a number of different necklaces.  Some incorporate her butterfly theme and some are just beautiful beads that she has found in her travels.  Please let us know what you think of the designs - are they colourful enough?

Look in the Necklaces for Sale page for more butterflys in this range

Whomper Beads

These are really our latest experiment - resin whomper beads as our kids call them.  They are large and ultra smooth to touch and have an unusual misty look.  We are going to mix them with a silky soft wool and see if our design works.  Keep watching our blog to see the finished product.

Butterfly Collection is Expanding

This week Jane has been experimenting with a variety of different colours and textures for the Butterfly Collection.  She has spent many happy hours coordinating beads and making some unique designs for the Collection.  Here is a sneak preview.

Our First Interstate Commission

We were so excited last week to receive some beautiful beads from a bead lover in the Australian Capital Territory.  The owner of the beads wanted to match a particular suit and could not find a ready made piece of jewellery.  She tracked down some sensational beads, sent them to us and we transformed them into a necklace, posted it back to her and she is thrilled with the result.  Have a look at the finished product.
