2014 – The Start of Another Year

Happy New Year to you all

I am kicking off the New Year with a Clearance Sale in my Etsy store.  I have cut the prices on lots of items over 50%, I really want to sell these pieces so that I can clear the bead workshop and find the space and time to focus on new creations and designs in 2014.

The sale starts at 12noon GMT today – January 1st and will run until 3 January 12noon.  You can visit my store here


Aside from the sale I am currently planning two large competition pieces, a tutorial for a UK magazine and hopefully my first US magazine tutorial as well.  Nothing quite like deadlines to keep the momentum going.

Later this month my Peacock Cabochon Necklace tutorial will be coming out via the Beadworkers Guild Journal, you can join the guild and get your copy of journal – link http://www.beadworkersguild.org.uk/.

I have been a member of the guild since I started beading, the journals are fabulous and the guild is run entirely by volunteers!  A photo of a similar piece is below, I have used a slightly different cabochon image in the BWG tutorial.  You can order your cabochons from my cab shop on Etsy – I will be listing more peacock cabs shortly – www.etsy.com/shop/wingsmith2012



So onwards into 2014 I go, I wish you all good health, wealth and happiness for the forthcoming days.
