The creative and crafty bloggers at work!
Last Saturday, the Creative and Crafty Bloggers were in for a real treat.

We spent a few hours in The Bead Shop in Nottingham getting to grips with making beaded earrings. The Bead Shop has a fab mail order service too, so every blogger could stock up with additional product from the comfort of home.

Steph our teacher who runs many of the weekly workshops took us through the basics. We started with knowing what pliers to use when and then we started making the all important loop at the top of my earrings.

After a few goes to get our confidence, Steph told us to select a few beads to make matching earrings.
ta-daa! my vintage style earrings

 I choose these lovely vintage style pearls and pink glass ones. I'm a redhead so they were soft colours and would match my skin tone. We then attached the magic loops we've made onto earring findings and we were done! Fab, bespoke earrings and made by me!

And here is a quick selfie after the class of me with my new earrings! I have to say, once Steph had taught us the magic loop the rest was up to our creative ideas.

Really recommend the classes plus being above the bead shop, there is a chance to do a bit of shopping too.

The new workshop programme has just been released, sign up to the newsletter to get some great money saving discounts!

Happy Crafting,
