Vintage purple

I have been having fun exploring the hoard in my bead cupboard and rediscovered some vintage glass crystals. I used one to make a bead embroidered pendant to go with a new dress. I had so much fun messing around with the beads so I’ve shared the full story on my Heatherbeads blog here just in case you’re tempted to mess around too. I’ve included a fun tip for how to back a clear focal stone.

I’m also parting with this hoard of vintage deliciousness, and have just a limited number of the very same clear purple crystals for sale in the supplies section here.
