Bearhouse Beads. I am noticing a definite trend towards matching items, in particular earrings and necklaces. These smaller sets, comprising a focal bead with four complementary smaller beads, have been particularly popular with my jewellery designer customers recently. I have had a lot of fun coming up with my own colour combinations, as well as working with my clients to bring their own colour ideas to life. https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/bearhousebeads Facebook: Bearhouse Beads

Threadabead. It was a lovely hot and sunny May in the UK and many of us were enjoying time in our gardens and the outdoors.

Both patterns are beaded in Round Peyote and the instructions are packed full of diagrams and photos to help you along the way.
