Lots of you have been requesting that we stock more semi-precious beads, so I have been busy finding new lines which I hope you will enjoy using in your designs.
Pictured left are some of the lovely new range we have in stock. Agate cut in a hexaganol rice shape in a minty green with white streaks comes in strings of 28 from only £8.50 a string.
The new range of semi precious chips are good quality decent sized chips on long strings of 36 inches. We have amethyst, chalk turquoise, dark citrine and carnelian among others. If you look at the picture above you will also see a fine smooth pipebead in turquiose and a pearly sodalite chip. So there is plenty to choose from and the range will be added to weekly.
Hopefully you will be inspired to get out your pliers, silver headpins and inspiration to get cracking making some gorgeous new pieces of jewellery.
Another lovely jewellery making kit is new on the site. This time in gorgeous aquamarine and turquoise using some of our lovely big beads!
This time we have combined our new big pearls with mouth blown hollow glass hearts and big turquoise beads. Susie is making us a matching stretchy bracelet kit to go with it.
I’ll put it on this blog as soon as it is finished.
Happy Jewellery Making.

Just in are some gorgeous new Turquoise beads, we have a pipe-bead, chunky nuggets and smooth ovals.
The nugget beads pictured left are 20-25 mm long and are supplied in strings of about 20.
Turquoise combines beautifully with Bali silver. To cut costs in your jewellery making but still get the same classic style use silver plated spacer beads for a similar look.

More new beads for Pandora Style Bracelets today. These are really lovely shiny chunky ones with pretty stones in several colourways.
We sell them in a set of 7 or individually.
They start from only £1.45 each. You don’t have to use them just on snake bracelets, try them on leather thong for a quickly made choker.
I have just put this new range of Pandora style beads on the Bluestreak Beads website. They are fitted with an integral ring to hang charms from.
They come in a fab assortment of colours, each bead is set with 8 crystal stones. We have jet, aqaumarine, rose, amethyst, crystal, purple velvet and ruby versions.
Use them on snake chain pandora or troll style bracelets or in the centre of a necklace with a removable pendant.
More new beads coming very soon
Wow! It’s been over a month since I updated this blog…..and the reason is that we have been moving to a lovely new business unit with tons more space for all of our fabulous beads and jewellery making kit!
There was so much to do getting it ready and moving all of our millions of beads that we’ve had little time for other stuff but I am back now and have just put some new stock on the site. There will be lots more coming on over the next few weeks. It’s been building up here waiting for our great big new space to be ready.
Pictures to follow very soon.
Have a great weekend everyone
