Lovely to be here and enjoying reading all the interesting posts. I was was hoping for advice.
About a year ago I started making chunky bead necklaces. I find it relaxing and my friends and I now have a lovely necklaces to wear. I'm struggling to find interesting glass or stone beads and growing a bit bored with the limited choice at Hobbycraft... Any idea's? I live in Bucks and have only limited mobility.
Here's an article I found with the kinds of beads I'm looking for, only problem is they don't sell loose beads: www.africanodyssey.co.uk/blog/gemstones-for-bead-necklaces
The image attached is one of my necklaces with my grand daughter modelling it.
