My Beadwork Blog and Gallery

Beading is a bit of an obsession. My beadwork blog is home to my thoughts on pieces I am working on, techniques I am learning, and my beading inspirations. I live in Bournemouth, Dorset and am mum to two gorgeous young children. I volunteer at both school and toddler group, and work part-time in online ad production. I try to fit in as much beading here and there as I can, for both relaxation, and to stretch and expand my creative side. I've learnt a variety of textile crafts over the years, but have always loved jewellery-making. I enjoy wirework, but beadweaving and bead embroidery have proved to be my favourite mediums, and it is these types of beadwork that I always seem to come back to. I love the colour and feel of beads, planning new projects, learning new techniques and of course, bead shopping! I read a wide variety of beading magazines and books, and apart from the occasional workshop, am primarily self-taught.

So many projects, so little time!

As usual I haven't managed to stick to one project! Everyday commitments have thwarted most beady activity, but I've got a couple of things to dip in and out of. I've started a Laura McCabe bracelet but had to stop that as more beads were needed as it didn't look quite right.......the spiral rope is still on the go.......and I received some more gorgeous cabachons from Rosebudlia. I endeavour to finish some of these things after Christmas, but here is a pendant I finished that was a weekend project....this colour scheme may become one of my favourites!
