Just released this month is my E A R R I N G S project book - why not treat yourself to a personal Valentine gift - it's available on both amazon dot co dot yewkay & dot com!


Even though this book is a compilation of projects from previous books, it's packed with design inspiration and new techniques, which in turn will hopefully act as a trigger for your own personal ideas ... Although the projects are all recipes for Earring designs, the photography and images reveal co-ordinated necklaces and bracelets. So there's something for everybody!

I will be demonstrating and promoting the book on BEAD.TV quite shortly,
showing how to create some of the earrings, such as:




CHARM
CASCADE



















CUPID
HEARTS






















EGYPTIAN
CHAIN
PYRAMIDS
























PINK
DAISIES


















FALLEN
LEAVES











So if you haven't subscribed to BEAD.TV yet ... now is the time to think about it!
I will also be demonstrating how to create your own unique ear wires,
plus different
techniques for making headpins, both plain and functional,
as well as decorative ...

Here's a little
'taster' of
the styles I
will be demon-
strating ...
















**************************************************************************************

Below are a few more of the projects included within the book -
I've tried to supplement as many variations and styles to please
all tastes and personalities!







FISHY FUN

Great to make for
a friend who has
a PISCES star sign ...



















FRAMED
BEAD
EARRINGS

These have a very 'retro/
vintage' feel, which makes
them perfectly
in
-trend for 2011!
















BIRTHSTONE
LADDERS

You don't have to
make them with
gemstone chips -
colourful beads
look stunning too!
Increase the
length to make
a matching bracelet!

















WIGGLY
WIRES

This simple
wiggly chain
link can be
filled with
wrapped beads
or left uncluttered
as shown.











TIMELESS
TASSELS

Not only do beaded
tassels make great
embellishments for
jewellery - clip them
on to handbags, zips,
cushion corners and
curtain tie-backs ...

  4. Many thanks, Charters! The Bead.TV filming is all over now - pheww! We managed all 5 earring projects and 'ear wire' plus 'head pin' techniques as well. I have also been asked to present on a monthly basis ... which is very exciting, but slightly daunting at the same time. 'Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway' as the saying goes ...
