Autumn Glow Tutorial - Bead Doctor Greetings

Autumn is coming

As the last days of summer start to fade I thought we would have a change from all the red, white and blue that has been flying around in this exciting year. My Autumn Glow tutorial is in muted vintage tones that remind me of a mysterious and hazy autumn afternoon. There is still plenty of sparkle though from the Swarovski beads I have used. They always add a touch of glam and you know I can never resist that!

I have added all my Autumn themed tutorials to the blog this week to kick start the new season and you could win all the materials needed for any one of them!

Giving it away

With the nights drawing in there will be a lot less basking on the patio and a lot more beading by the fire. To warm your Autumn evenings we are giving away, not one, but four kits this week! To be in with a chance of winning one of four kits here’s how: Choose the kit you would like to win from our Autumn range (Autumn EarringsLeaf NecklaceGlamorous Gold or Autumn glow) on Bead Barmy.
