On classes wise, we are conducting "Beaded Beads" on 1 May and "Tiffany Earrings" on 30 May. Many students are already asking me about the June classes. I have decided to conduct the "Intricate Oval Links Bracelet". This is a 2-session class and more details will be available by early May. I have brought in some new colours of the permanent finish seed beads which I hope to use for the class.
New jewellery will be added at Beads Coffret and new project kits at Beads Cage in May.
So, please be patient with me while I try to get all ready by May!

I am selling them at a low price because the sizes of these rings are larger, starts from Size 7 1/2 (when the ends are closed up). For me, only my middle finger is large enough to fit the ring. There are only 10 of each colour.

If you have not tried our Pearly Netted Bangle project before, you are required to purchase both manuals (additional S$10 for the bangle manual, materials at extra costs if you need) to familiarise yourself with the technique.
What is in the Kit?
(It is actually sufficient to make an extra bangle.)
~ Illustrated Manual
~ 2 strands of 4mm, 6mm & 8mm each*
~ 20gm of TOHO Permanent Galvanised Silver/Gold Size 11 seed beads**
~ 10gm of TOHO Permanent Galvanised Silver/Gold Size 11 seed beads
~ 10gm of TOHO Galvanised Silver/Gold Size 15 seed beads
~ 1 #12 Beading Needle
*The gemstones included in these kits are natural stones and not of the highest quality. As such, irregularities are to be expected which add characteristics to the piece.
**You may substitute the colours of the seed beads of your choice (from our online shop) but there will be no change to the prices.
***Manual only is S$10 (special price) if you do not wish to purchase the materials.
Lilac Gemstones Kit - S$36
These natural Lilac stones have a pale lilac tone on them. Honestly, the first look at the strand itself may be disappointing because the colour looks dull. However, after they were stitched onto the necklace, they give a very natural appeal.
I have used Size 11 Czech Rep. Opaque Purple seed beads for the project. As the bead holes are smaller, stitching with double threads can be quite challenging. I actually broke 4 needles. Thus, for the project kit, the seed beads will be replaced with the permanent galvanised silver seed beads. However, if you like to work with the purple seed beads, let me know and I will put together the materials for you.
Mahogany Obsidian - S$40
The Mahogany Obsidian gemstones are a mixture of brown and black. I have paired them with gold seed beads.
Green Serpentine - S$34
The Green Serpentine gemstones look like olive green. I have paired them with silver seed beads.
My first necklace was made with Amazonite gemstones. They are in sizes from 3mm to 8mm. They are only available with special order only. Each kit costs S$76.
If you wish to work with Swarovski crystal pearls, the investment is approximately S$70 (based on market selling price of the pearls).
