We are mixing it up in the 2018 Bead Challenge!


Something a little different to inspire your creativity, with a lovely, basic collection of metal components, interesting Czech shaped beads and semi-precious hematite rounds added for extra shine and weight.


Let your imagination run wild as you bring a fabulous piece to life with your own choice of extra beads, colours, or findings using your own favourite techniques.
