Thinking outside the box, is one of those odd phrases I’m never entirely sure what people mean when they say it. However I do believe I found myself “thinking outside the box” when the brand new SoftFlex Trios arrived. I wanted to do something a little different with them, my initial thought was to do some simple stringing with some of the colourful wires on show, however the small snippet of an image on the front of the trio set led me down a different path.
With the holiday season creeping up on us I’ve been getting crafty with our Christmas charms. We regularly make our Christmas charms into earrings for customers who want something to jazz up their outfit for their Christmas parties and they are always popular. But I wanted to use the charms to make something a little different.
Hello Steph here! Some of you may already know how much I love right angle weave (RAW), particularly if you’ve been on any of my workshops before. It’s such a versatile beading technique and one that looks more complicated than it really is. We’ve taught many people how to make a right angle weave bracelet on our basic jewellery making class and everyone is always surprised by how easy and relaxing it is to do.
