Merry Christmas........discount code until New Years Eve in my Etsy shop!

Well I ran out of beads and I wanted dangles - so just completed Sparkle Star at the weekend - designed by Jean Power.  It is a lovely design that offers flexibility - double sided.........I am sure I will have a few requests for next Christmas!

Jean fell for my Aztec Flower design on the day - she has created some beautiful combinations - Peacock EyeAquamarine and Fuschia .......and I fell in love with her crown stones!   The original copper 27mm stone I purchased at my local bead shop -  Northern Beads.

I have a discount code of JEN20 for all items in my Etsy shop - this will operate until New Years Eve. 

Given response from Etsy on EUVAT - I will no longer be offering digital downloads of my tutorials in the New Year.

I will be exploring other third party options for my tutorials in my summer break.   It is likely that I will list only soutache kits and a selection of completed makes.  There is no plan to offer my tutorials in paper format - as I prefer the flexibility of PDF format - and the ability to enlarge text and photos.

Soutache Kits & Bespoke Orders

I had a brilliant few days at Brancepeth Castle last weekend - great to touch base with regular customers and catch up with friends.  I have listed the Soutache Starter Kits that were created for the event in my Etsy shop - they would make nice gifts for crafty friends.  

This weekend the fab Stow Bag I purchased at Brancepeth Castle was in action - great design - perfect size for mini ipad and all the weekend essentials.

Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop on Saturday with Jean Power at the The Bridge - organised by Michelle of Northern Beads.........next years date is already in my diary!  Today was spent working on a bespoke orders for Fibula Pin........never let wire go to waste - created a reject 'Jo' - 30 cm was not enough for long names!
