Pink and Pearls – the “Girly” Update

Almost no-one here at BeadFX will admit to being a “girly” girl. We rassle molten glass for fun, buy our own diamonds thenkewverrymuch, and stab things thousands of times with tiny little needles … we’re smart, funny, practical, and would rather have sandals than spike heels. That said – we still have a place in our hearts for pearls and pink … Such as 3 and 4 mm Glass Pearls. In colours ranging from pretty natural – to pretty cool – these small pearls can be spacers, or working into your bead weaving/shaped bead projects. You don’t even need to …

I have a morning ritual …

and it involves beads. On weekday mornings, I get up, and feed the dogs, and make myself a coffee, and go and sit with my beads. I have a bead-on-it board, on a little folding table, near a window. And spread out on the board, at any given time, is a selection of beads. I’m not making anything fancy – in fact – in the last six months, I’ve hardly done anything but stretchy elastic bracelets. I’m not making them for sale, I’m not making them for gifts. I’m not trying to build a reputation or promote my brand or …

Floating Rocks

InspirationFX – Get your creative juices flowing   by: Dwyn Tomlinson Rock it out with this floating rock creation! This project came together as an act of serendipity – happy coincidence. I had the sterling rocks on my table, thinking about a bracelet (which I also made, actually – sterling rocks with one lampwork bead, on stretchy elastic) and the Kaputt Pendant, with the bail, from the photo that I took for the website. And I thought that they looked really good together – and hey presto – next thing you know – I have this!You could make this without …
