Auntie's Beads ~ Product Review


Auntie's Beads

I have been lucky enough to receive a voucher
to put towards purchasing some items from
Auntie's Beads.

The first thing I needed to decide was what I wanted to make.
This is where Auntie's Beads excels most sites.
They have a design centre where you are either
given written instructions on how to make the design or there
are videos you can follow.
As quite a new jewellery maker this was invaluable.
I decided to make :
Hidden Treasure Beaded Bracelet | Auntie's Beads

I decided to make mine slightly different as I love owls
and I thought their design would go brilliantly with one
of their glass owls. 

When you get the instructions for the design
all the items you will need are linked below
so it's easy to purchase the items without
having to search for them.

Once you have purchased you items and gone through
checkout you will find the postage is very reasonable.
I was worried with being in the UK but was pleasantly surprised
at the cost of postage and packaging.


First you take 2 wires 
Beadalon 19-strand Wire, 30 ft., .015, Metallic Satin Gold


And then feed on the fresh water pearls


And here is the owl I added :-)
Lampwork Owl Bead, White, 14x16mm | Auntie's Beads


It was a beautiful and easy bracelet to make.
The instructions were easy to follow.


And I hope you'll agree it looks beautiful

Auntie's Beads site is amazing.
It has such a variety of items and the prices
are fantastic. 

I ended up buying lots more so I can make
more beautiful items of Jewellery

As you can see I got an amazing array of different items from the site.
The delivery was quick and the customer service were very helpful.
They send you an email so you can easily track your items.

I've already started making another item.

I love the fact that you can either buy items you want
or follow designs and make yourself some beautiful jewellery.
I'm also thinking of adding some of my beads to
my crochet designs.

Why don't you check out some of the designs you can make
at their design centre.
