A new design

I posted a Beads and Beyond project off to the mag today, and it's one I am oh-so-proud of....I'm giving you just a sneak peek of it here on my blog. My last two submitted projects have contained (shock horror!) no art beads but have seen me return to wire work, a Jewellery technique which I love. The latest set is particularly exciting for me as I feel it's the tip of an iceberg; an iceberg that I've been wanting to get to grips with for a long time, and I am now ready to start.

With some advice from the lovely Jo Tinley of Daisychain Designs (also a regular Beads and Beyond contributor), this summer I purchased a tumbler. It's still in pieces but this project has shown me that to take things any further, I must set it up and USE IT. (Jo, if you're reading this, I'm sorry! I have even lost the set up instructions....bad beader.)

So, watch this space....I feel I may have some new tricks up my sleeve....

LOL!! I did wonder why you didn't answer when I asked you if you'd set it up yet!! It's easy, I promise, and there are some hints in the tutorials section of my blog if you need them. Once you've started using it you'll wonder how you ever did without it!
I'm really looking forward to seeing what you've sent in this time.
