This is a 'live' diary post as I have just finished making this necklace!
Using semi precious turquoise pear shapes
and simply stringing them together with some small brown 'wooden look' beads.
I am really pleased because the brown beads
were part of my free gift from Bead Magazine and
the turquoise has been a difficult little bead
to find complimentary colours for.
I think the 'wood look' beads go quite nicely with the natural brown lines found on the turquoise.
I am so glad to have found some playmates for my little turquoise!
Bead Magazine are currently sending out goodie bags with every subscription.
In my experience 'free gifts' are usually proof of the saying ' you get what you pay for',
i.e a load of rubbish, BUT on this occasion I was utterly suprised and delighted with the free fare.
Just take a look at this little lot:
You receive an actual gift bag
jam packed full of beading goodies!
The organza gift bag contains:
20 Gold plated ear wires
20 Gold plated ribbon ends
3 x Ribbons
Pack of mixed glass leaves/hearts ready looped
Test tube of Autumn Glow bead mix
Test tube of brown round beads
Russet red beading thread
An enourmous string of glass hearts.
A big eye beading needle ....
and a discount at Beads Direct!
-Phew, I'm glad typing that little list is over!
Here's a few pics of some of my favourites:
|Thought I would share the discount voucher with you all !|
I couldn't believe a 'free gift' could be this good!
If you are thinking of subscribing to Bead Magazine now is a good time to do so!
