Anyway back to the reveal... I received my beads in the post a few weeks back and loved them immediately (sadly I didn't think to take a picture of the beads before I got to work). A quick trip to my local bead shop The Bead Base (in Basingstoke) resulted in me buying far too many beads as always!!
One thing I should have mentioned is that the beautiful beads came from Kaz Baildon - you can find more of her beautiful work here in her Etsy shop
Anyway here is the bracelet I created....
Be sure to check out what everyone else has created by following the links below....
Edited to add: If anyone is wondering how I made this bracelet check out the tutorial on Lesley's Gossiping Goddess blog - Tutorial
