Price reductions!!

Yes, that's right. Reductions.

It's not often you see genuine price reductions.
We have made some reductions on a few of our Delica beads. This is because a recent purchase of the beads has benefited from a better freight charge and exchange rate on the dollar. So we are passing the savings on to you!

Delica 11 DB1490 was £3.95 NOW £3.50 for 10g
Delica 11 DB041 was £4.50 NOW £3.75 for 10g
Delica 11 DB1507 was £3.95 NOW £3.50 for 10g
Fireline 6lb Smoke was £8.50 NOW £7.95 for 50 yd reel

These prices will remain at least until we buy some more!

Goodness knows what will happen then!

And last but not least for this session... accessories

Here are some beading accessories. Ideal as gift ideas for your beading friends.

In addition to the pens, pensils and key rings in our "Design your own" project parts range we have now added a needlecase key ring. This key ring has a larger barrel than our standard key ring and also has a secret - open the lid to reveal space for your stash of needles. Ideal for beaders on the go. For £5.95 the price includes a blank chart for your to design your cover in Delica 11s. The blank chart shows the number of beads needed for the the project and is a bonus feature for all of this range.

Savings galore!!

It is amazing what we accumulate in the way of odds and ends, end of range items and some we discovered "lurking at the back of a cupboard".

So much so that we have started a clearance / end of range section to the website. Some items are now less than half price!!

Go on and have a look. We might just have what you've been looking for.

Precious new kit now available

Kathryn Mather's bracelet was so admired at the Haydock Park Bead Fair in April that we have now produced it as a kit. We have called it precious because it uses the sterling silver plated Delicas (HD551 - £8.95 for 5g) which give a great outline to the 3 shades of purple. Priced at only £11.95, the Precious chevron bracelet kit contains full instructions and all the beads you need to make a bracelet up to 8" long.
