Finally, it’s here – the long awaited workshop to learn the Adriana bracelet!! With a choice of cords and crystals, each bracelet can be a unique as you like and coordinate with specific outfits. Here I have used jet crystal rondelles with grey cord which I think looks quite smart and can be worn with casual clothes or to embellish something more dressy!
After a very stressful and busy week, it was such a pleasure to create these gorgeous Adriana bracelets. I had great fun experimenting with colours and these are my three favourite creations.
The AB finish adds the sparkle and hint of purple to these crystal rondelles.
The silver with navy gives a nautical feel!
The tone on toe of metallic silver rondelles with grey cord looks very high end.
Today 21 teachers & retailers gathered in St Albans to learn about and experiment with Beadalon products, new and old. We packed in 10 demonstrations and participants still had time to try things out for ourselves.
We loved the Jewel Loom, Knot N Bead, Spin N Bead as well as the flat memory wire. But it didn’t stop there. We made our own findings with the new Findings Forms, created wire beads and twisted wire jump rings – all with Beadalon’s quality tools and products.
Our next Educational programme is our “Learn to Teach Beginners How to Make Jewellery’ – Teacher Programme. For further details email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
In preparation for Sunday’s Beadalon Product Training day for teachers, demonstrators and retailers, I have been experimenting with all the products being featured. The Knot A Bead is one of my favourites!! I love the luxurious look its knots between beads – in this case, freshwater pearls.
It is fun and easy! Try it, you’ll love it, like I do!!

I’ve been wearing my ChaCha rings – I have about half a dozen in different colours, and have been getting so many nice comments and even some new friends! People are amazed that they are easy to make and especially interested when they find they are on stretch cord and therefore easy and comfortable to wear.
Next class on ChaCha rings is 25 September in St Albans.
Today I am featuring Susan Lamb’s original design of a gorgeous tiered crystal rondelle necklace. Susan will be teaching and creating this lovely project at St Albans on 28 August.
Susan took my Jewellery Teacher Course last year and was amazing! Now she is designing her own jewellery pieces and teaching as well. If you want to take your jewellery to a new level, why not consider learning how to teach jewellery to beginners. We are running the next, Creative Academy Course in How to Jewellery to Beginners starting in September .
The course takes place on 4 separate Sundays (Sep 7, Oct 19, Nov 9 and Dec 7) in St Albans. For more information, email me on: email@example.com
I just can’t help it – I love pearls – all kinds of pearls but I especially love freshwater pearls and these coin shaped freshwater pearls are at the top of the list. I love mixing them with crystals and these opaque & translucent turquoise rondelles look amazing! Add the silver noodles and you have a stunning coil bracelet that is both quick and very easy to create!
