Greetings from the Bead Doctor

Autumn Delight Tutorial - Bead Doctor Greeting

Some of my own silver work

Hello all, I am very excited this week, as I have just been accepted as a guest artist at The Hay Craft Company shop in Hay on Wye. Some of my solid silver jewellery will be on sale there. I trained in silversmithing, so it has been nice to have a little dabble again in between my Bead Barmy projects.
You will be glad to know that I have still had time to put together a brand new tutorial for Bead Barmy. I am still feeling autumnal so I have reflected this in a fancy necklace using a multitude of autumn shades. I think this piece would work well in these colours even over the Christmas season. However, if you wanted to, you could just as well change the colours for bright reds or greens. Or how about monochrome beads and silver chain for a totally different look? Whatever you decide, I hope you have fun making it! Now, back to my hammering……

Giving it away!

Sorry, this giveaway is now closed. For a chance to win this necklace kit, we asked you to tell us what season inspires you and why. Our winner is Lynn Hawkins who posted on October 31st. Congratulations Lynn. Enjoy your making!
