We've received lots of striking new handmade lampwork glass bead sets from Lesley Silver of Beadsashore.

They're now all photographed and ready to place on www.bigbeadlittlebead.com . . . so here's a sneak peak of 3 in all their vibrancy . . . as we start to put them on site

Much of today was spent preparing and packaging up a shipment of some 40,000 silver connectors for one of our customers who is studying at the Edinburgh College of Art. She is creating a six outfit collection for Graduate Fashion Week in June.

We really don't envy her the work involved in taking these simple metal connectors and turning them into something wearable . . . but we are really looking forward to seeing the finished designs!

A week into 2016 and the first of two new beadmakers has joined our ranks.

All the way from Kiev in the Ukraine Olga Vasylenko of Ceramberries specialises in handmade ceramic bead sets - with more than a nod towards nature and natural forms.

We're sure you will appreciate her beautifully combined glazes as well as her varied bead shapes which come complete with varied texturing, punctures, scribing, and purposeful cracking!

It's a Happy New Year!
