Greetings from the Bead Doctor
I am absolutely in love with the new leaf mix from Beads Unlimited. These gorgeous charms are so rich in detail they need little embellishment. So, as part of my Autumn collection, I have put together this simple tutorial. It takes just four easy steps to create this pretty necklace. This makes for my favourite combination – minimum effort and maximum results!
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!
