Beads and Beyond Magazine – Designer Challenge

UK Jewellery and beading magazine Beads and Beyond have a regular designer challenge feature, and I’m in this months issue!
Four jewellery designers are given the same selection of beads and components and are challenged to make three pieces of jewellery. The beads were from my ‘day job’ at The Bead Shop Nottingham and included Swarovski gemcolour pearls and new coin shaped pearls, Trinity Brass connectors, Czech crackle glass beads and some ivory seed beads.

*it might be my name and photo (eurgh!) on the feature but I also had a bit of help from Steph from Nettynot writing the instructions as I ran out of time, Thanks Steph 🙂
