First Cambridge Beads

So here they are - the first beads made in my new shed. There will be photos of the new bead abode in due course ..... just as soon as we get a proper internet connection!

Tonight's bead sales will work in the usual way. To buy beads please email me with the relevant code/s and it'll be first come, first served. I will email you back but it may take a tad longer than usual as I'll be emailing via my trusty iPhone.

All of tonight's decorated beads are approximately 13mm diameter and plain spacers are 9mm diameter. All prices include postage to anywhere in the world.

So without further ado .....

'Lovely Lovely Purple'
SOLD

I'm always at a loss for names for purple beads. There are so many shades of purple and I get bored of 'Berry' and 'Blackcurrant' and the like so these ones are 'Lovely Lovely Purple'. Pinky-amethyst and pale lavender-blue beads decorated with indigo stringerwork. The spacers are darker in this photo than they are in actual life - in reality they are a gorgeous aubergine kind of colour.

Number of Beads : 17
Price : £47.00


'Ice Cream'
SOLD

These are my favourite ones from tonight's selection. Okay, I know that blue ice-cream isn't really a thing but the name just suits these beads. Pale pink, green, cream and blue beads encased in crystal clear and decorated with spots. The spacers are etched to a soft matt finish and this seems to have made them look edible - like the little sweets you get on candy bracelets and necklaces. Please don't eat these, though! Lots of jewellery-making potential with this large set.

Number of Beads : 29
Price £70.00

"blue ice-cream isn't really a thing" ... but I somehow feel that it ought to be! Lovely, lovely beads; so glad I was first to the BLU ones.
