I've been putting 2012 beady plans together, and in the meantime - forgot to update this blog for 6 weeks. Oops! I hope I am forgiven.
As promised, we've assembled some great designers for our new free bead projects, and also a really convenient way for you to receive them. Gone are the days of emails with attachments, or trying to read instructions off the blog while you bead - you can now access the project instantly, and download, or print off at your leisure!
So.. with no further ado - here's the first project. Designed by the lovely Janet Sherret and called...
Heart of Ice necklace
This multi strand design is suitable for beginners / improvers and shows off a great technique to make any large focal bead work as a pendant! Using a mix of 4mm Czech fire polish beads, spring cone caps and a matte frosted focal heart. All materials are available from www.madcowbeads.com
This design would also look amazing with a 20mm round flat focal and a mix of amber toned Czech beads.

This is the first in an ongoing series, drawing from the wealth of talent amongst our customers and friends.
Please let me know what you think :-)
