My new found hobby

I have a new hobby – jewellery making! I was at the library the other day when I stumbled across a couple of books on bead making, so I decided to give it a go.

It turns out to be rather addictive. I hunted down some bead shops in London and went and bought quite a few bits and pieces. I spent the rest of the day making them into necklaces, earrings and brooches and now have plans to do some more.

I’ve joked to my partner that I might have to start a company that sells jewellery so I can fund my new habit… because otherwise it might cost me a small fortune!

So, any ideas for a company name? And no, Carmen’s Creations is already taken!

    Welcome to the world of beading, Carmen. Yup, it is definitely addictive. My beady friends warned me that it’s like eating potato chips … you can’t stop at just one.

    As for a name, I had mine long before I really knew about beads & beaders & all that magical stuff … I liked the play on words and never thought I’d ever use it in any creative way. Then the Bead Bug bit 😉

    You might want to google “beaders”, “beading” and such and take a look at some of the options. Some beaders use their real names, some use a a more descriptive term.

    Have fun!
