This week is Jewellery Maker’s birthday celebration. Sadly, I’m not going to be able to take part in a show myself. Happily, though, my beads are going to be representing me! To be precise, Gemma Crow will be presenting a kit that I designed for the Beadsmith. The fabulous Leslie Rogalski, from the Beadsmith, is also making a special guest appearance. She will be showing some gorgeous designs by talented fellow Beadsmith Inspiration Squaddies.
On top of all that, another of my designs has been featured in a special booklet. This is going to be launched on Jewellery Maker’s actual birthday tomorrow (4th May). I can’t share the design. It’s a surprise! So, make sure you tune in to see it. You can find the full schedule for this week right here.
What will Gemma Crow be doing?
Before I tell you that, let me say a huge thank you to Gemma. It’s not easy demonstrating a kit that someone else has designed. However, if you know Gemma Crow, you will know how super-talented she is. So, I couldn’t ask for anyone better to do this.
Gemma is going to be showing my Superduo Duet bangle. I know she has been learning the tutorial for a while. I designed this project as part of my work for the Beadsmith Inspiration Squad. Confession time…this design was not one that ‘just worked’. So, I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with this bangle! I love it now.
This bangle has also taken on a little life of its own. It has also appeared on Jewel TV in the USA. So, you could say it’s gaining celebrity status!
More Fabulous Projects
When you see both my projects revealed, you will notice a bit of a ‘theme’. I’ve been making good use of the new Superduo Duets. If you’re wondering what these are, then take a look at my other projects. I have a kit, some patterns and the beads themselves. You can find them all right here! I know I will be making more jewellery with these beads. So, stay tuned! Plus, if you want to be the first to hear about new patterns, you can join my mailing list.
However, those weren’t the fabulous projects I wanted to talk about. I’ve also had a sneak peek at the designs that Leslie Rogalski is going to be showcasing. There’s some serious gorgeousness in there! I’m afraid I can’t spoil the surprise and share them with you now. So, all I’m going to say is…make sure you tune in tomorrow and Friday.
