Flower / Petal Capped Beads

I am not a great one for New Year's Resolutions, but this year I had decided that I need to make better use of my poor, neglected, Etsy Shop.


Doing a Craft Fair every Saturday certainly keeps me busy with selling and making my jewellery and as a result, very little finds its way on to Etsy due to time constraints. After all, there are only so many beads I can make in a week - let alone make them all up into something special in the way of jewellery.


Thinking about this over the Christmas Holidays, I decided that my Etsy Shop would be better put to use as a place to sell solely beads.

So after much thought, I came to the conclusion that I could easily make 5 more beads each time I make enough for a necklace/bracelet/earrings etc for my Craft Fair and put these extras onto Etsy and hopefully people will love them as much as I do.

So here are my first two offerings.


The first are the Bronze Flower Capped beads, pictured above. As soon as I posted them on Etsy, they sold! Yay!! So I made another set and relisted them. They seem to have struck a cord with people and the photo on Flickr even made it onto Explore - I was just a bit excited!!!!

The second are Petal Capped Beads in a lovely shade of Aubergine with Ecru and palest green/yellow. I love these!!


So if you are looking for some unique and individual beads for your next project, please check them out!


I would love to hear what you think of them and if you would like to these these in any other colour ways.

Happy New Year to you all and Happy Creating!

I have been admiring these beads (and pinning them to pinterest!) would love to see what you make from them. Good idea to make extra beads, sounds manageable!!! Good luck finding time.

I love your beads! I would just love to have a bowl of assorted colours sitting on my coffee table as art!
