Here at Purple Moon Beads we are really looking forward to joining in with the National Beading Week Events. We are planning to bead bomb our shop window with a seaside theme of beady fish, shells, seahorses and real or imaginary sea creatures.
Pop in from Saturday 25th and start making! If you don't fancy beading why not try 'Build a Boat from Chainmail'
Using aluminium and rubber rings and a little help from us you can make a boat to bob about in our window display and at the end of the week photos of sea creatures and boats will be displayed on our facebook page. See if you can spot yours! Daily demonstrations of beading and chainmail techniques will be held in the shop.
We want you to have fun with your creative hobbies and provide you with an inspiring collection of materials from semi-precious stones to glass creature and novelty acrylic beads.
Choose your clasps and findings from a variety of metal finishes. A selection of stringing threads, cord and wire, tools and equipment are available with suggestions from us to help your imagination take off but if you are new to jewellery making or unsure of a technique then why not try one of our workshops.
For chainmaille enthusiasts take a look at our large range of coloured jump rings in aluminium.
The books and kits sections are there to help you but if you need more to fire your creative juices then check out our gallery for further inspiration.
