How organised is your bead board?

Well, until recently, mine was full of sticky labels showing me which beads were which. They were good up to a point but they didn’t keep their stickiness for long.

Then I discovered alphabet beads and pinned those on instead.

As is the case with evolution I decided to spruce them up a bit with some crystals and glue them in place. Problem solved!

I needed more than 1 set but only had 1 W in the bag. I couldn’t find what I needed online so I had to buy a full bag of mixed letters. What to do with all the rest? So in the stash they went.

Then I thought, if I love these so much then wouldn’t it be great to share the idea with everyone else . So I bought some more bags and with a lot of sorting out I was soon able to make up more sets. Now they are available for you to buy from the Accessory page of our shop (or just search for pins), and each set comes in a hand-made box so it makes an ideal gift.

I just love beading, don’t you?

Alphabet pins available in White or Pastel Colours

New page layout for bicones

All our bicones can now be viewed by colour or by size. Bicones are Chinese, unless they are specified as Preciosa (made in Czech Republic).

If you view by colour, you can then look at the options to see what sizes we have available.

If you view by size, you will see only the colours that are available in that size, and then you can look at the options to see all the other sizes sizes available too.
