MY TIME......B.C. (before cards!!)

I have no new card designs to show today, but i thought you may like to see what i used to get up to before paper took over!!
I attended some beading workshops, hosted by a lovely lady called Gillian Ashwell. The designs, patterns etc. are all copyright, devised by Gillian, who is one of the top bead designers in the country.These pieces are made entirely with needle, thread and lots & lots of seed beads in varying sizes.

I have to confess, i still have several unfinished pieces that hopefully i will complete, if not soon then one day in the future, i enjoy beading immensely and still have my bead case ready to go when i decide to take another workshop!

Thanks for popping in today, and i hope you have enjoyed seeing something a little different :)


  1. Ooh, pretty things! Great designs by Gillian. Great execution by you! :o)

  3. OOhh - talented or what??!! I'd have spent all my time picking up dropped beads - I do use seed beads now on my cards but not in that quantity!!!

  4. is there no end to your talents lady!
