Deep Reflection pattern and kit now available

It was the depth of colour and reflection of this Swarovski stone that inspired the name of my latest design. The pendant suspends from a spiral rope, but can easily be adapted to make a brooch. The techniques explained are spiral rope, circular netting, and embellished netting.

A downloadable pattern is available from The (Virtual) Beading Room (£4.50) or you can buy a full kit from for either the Aquamarine or Rose pendants (£16.50 per kit). In the main shop, we also have other colours of stones available so you can create your own colour scheme.

Happy beading,

New products - February 2017

Welcome to my first new product post for 2017. Guess what - it's mostly about Delicas! We will continue to increase our range and are always happy to include colours by request. Just let us know what you are searching for, and if we can get them, we will.

Our theme for 2017 is very much a continuation of our National Beading Week theme for 2016 - Beaded Tassels. The Clover Tassel Maker has been added to the accessories page and I hope to get the tassel threads and patterns online very soon.

Happy beading
