Near me there's very few, if any beadshops (my nearest one's over an hour round trip), so I have to make do with the internet. That's fine, although it's always a shame when you get mixed up with the size of beads even though you think you've double checked what size you want to order.
The last couple of days I've ordered quite a few new gemstone beads as I wanted to try some other beads. Here are most of the gorgeous strands...yummy
I've already got quite a few ideas of necklaces I want to make, I just don't really have the time to do it all. Hopefully I'll get a couple made at least in the next week and then uploaded to the website if they don't sell at the bazaar.
I've also finished my raffle prize. I was planning on putting in my Christmas wine charms, but have given them to a friend for Christmas, so decided that as it was a daytime bazaar and there may be children buying raffle tickets it might be more appropriate to have some jewellery. So have done a sweetie style charm bracelet with a gorgeous Swarovski star on it. Really simple, and not a bracelet base I'd usually use, but thought it should work for children, teens & adults alike.
