Touchy Feely Texture!

That title just popped into my head there..hehe. I liked it. As you may or may not guess from that, this post is all about my new textured beads!
I've recently started making a new style of clay beads and I thought now would be a great time to show them off. I spent quite a while trying to find a good way of texturing my beads and i'm fairly happy with my current method at the moment. Who knows when i'll get an urge to mix it up again and try something new though :p

Currently, I'm working with earthy/muted colours. So, no neon or pastels from me for a while!! Throughout my shop, all you'll see soon will be tribal inspired jewellery in a variety of natural colours. Of course, my handmade clay beads will feature heavily in a lot of items, but I'm also integrating some other types of natural beads. These include wood, bone and horn. Don't worry though...all materials are reliably sourced and all the beads I use will be made ethically :D

The bracelet shown at the top of this post(and below) is the first of my new style of adjustable bracelets. There's some great tutorials available online for braided jewellery. I'm always looking for new ones but i'm hoping to post my own one day as a way of giving back for all the helpful hints and tips I've picked up online over the years. There's some very talented crafters out there and i'm proud to be a part of the community.

This, and many other bracelets and necklaces, will be available from my Etsy shop from the end of Feb! Keep checking back on the blog, or on Facebook or Twitter, to keep up to date with what's happening so you don't miss out. Don't forget, although it's possible for me to make multiple items that are similar, it's almost impossible to recreate any piece exactly so they are all one of a kind items!!

Lastly, the UBER CLEARANCE SALE is still on over at Etsy in order for me to clear out my shop to make way for all the new fab tribal jewellery that'll be popping up in Feb!! The sale items will never be listed again so grab them before they go!

That's all for now, thanks for reading :)
