So it turns out that there is an incredible bead shop that has been in Plymouth now for the last nearly a year. I don't know how I missed this, but hooray I have found it now!
The shop is called Bead Boutique and I went for the first time today, and the choices, oh the endless choices!
I exercised an unprecedented amount of restraint (sort of) and only bought bits for a few pieces of jewellery this time around. Glossing quickly over the new set of tools I bought just because they were purple and sparkly ... Ahem.
Aren't they cute ;)
I wanted to practice using crimp beads and make some floating bead style necklaces. The white and black roses are just so beautiful, I am soooo pleased with how the shorter necklace has come out.
I also used the additional green square beads to make a little bracelet, as below.
I also loved these purple flower beads, which I mixed with dark grey round beads with lovely silver patterns on them.
From which I made the other necklace and matching earrings below.
Which concludes the beads bought this morning, but I will most absolutely be returning very very soon! I have barely even scraped the surface of the possibilities :) hurray!
Thanks for reading
