Beads, Beads and more Beads

As some may know I have been doing a silversmithing course for the last few years and this year I started a beading class as well and it is fab. I now have a new addiction to rival Farmville! Do you have any idea how easy it is to get completely carried away with buying beads online? I sat down on Monday to order some beads and before I knew it I had ordered 3 lots from 3 different web sites LOL. It was a complete accident, I had no intention of spending so much but it just happened, it was absolutely not my fault. They were just so pretty and colourful and sparkly and they called to me!!

Anyway I tought you might like to see my first attempt at beading. It is a bracelet for my DD and I just love the colours, they are so cheerful.

Do you wear jewellery? What sort do you like best?

If you know of any good places to buy beads let me know!

The bracelet's lovely Jazzy.

If you're ever in Turkey...this is the place to buy beads.

A friend of mine stocks up every time she comes over as she's really into making jewellery. She goes to Izmir where there are lots of little winding roads with shops full of beads in all shapes, sizes and colours. She says they are far cheaper than the UK.

Now you're making me jealous Ayak!
