I love the Brighton Bead Shop and have been shopping there for yeeeeears. Before the Internet, even. These days they have gone all hi-tech and have got a Beads Unlimited website and a facebook page and a ‘Bead Barmy’ blog. Naturally they are on Twitter, too, as @beadsunlimited.

Jo from their Bead Barmy site contacted me recently to ask if I would participate in one of their blog posts, and here is what she created: http://www.beadbarmy.com/2011/11/hobby-to-business-is-just-whats-kneaded/

Thanks Jo!

New Polymer Clay Bracelets

(105 days to go until the polymer clay cruise. I’ve paid the deposit, and am now looking at flights.)

Yesterday I went to a fundraising party-thing upstairs at the Brighton Bead Shop, in celebration of their 25th anniversary and in aid of their chosen charity the RNLI.  I think I’ve been shopping with the BBS for nearly all of those 25 years (it was by mail order in the olden days), and they were one of the main reasons I originally went to live in Brighton. They seem to be doing better than ever, and have now started running classes in making jewellery (click here for their facebook page).  They had cake and  jewellery for sale – what a great combination! After I’d availed myself of both, I went downstairs to do my ‘proper’ bead shopping. So today I’ve been in the superShed playing with my new supplies, and combining them with my existing polymer clay beads.

I wanted to make some simple adjustable bracelets, so I made some from wire links…

…and others were even simpler and just threaded onto elastic.
