Bead Fair Reports – 4 more bumper shows!

Cornish Bead Fair, Wadebridge
Cornish Bead Fair, Wadebridge 2021Cornish Bead Fair, Wadebridge 2021A bit slower than the last Cornish show in Probus, just a month before. These two fairs are usually spaced out more, but the hall in Probus wasn’t available until July because of covid restrictions.

Berwick-Upon-Tweed Bead Fair
Berwick-Upon-Tweed Bead Fair 2021Our best Berwick ever! Lots of visitors, apart from our regulars. Two ladies even travelled by train and bus from Edinburgh. Beaders seek us out in the smallest of villages!

Scottish Bead Fair, Perth
Perth Bead FairScottish Bead Fair 2021A little quieter than expected at this beautiful hotel where Queen Victoria once stayed. Many thanks to Southampton Bead Shop for attending and Joanne’s excellent workshop.

See the short video of the show on our FaceBook page.

Harrogate Gem n Bead Fair
Harrogate Bead Fair 2021

Harrowgate Gem n Bead FairHarrogate Bead SellersA lot quieter than expected, with only a few of our regular visitors present. No idea why, especially as it’s over 18-months since this once-popular fair. Less exhibitors than usual too.

Top picture shows Michael from Bead Buyer with MiMi, and Michael in surprise after hearing we had a sale! Below picture is bead sellers at the Kestrel after a hard day at Harrogate Gem n Bead Fair – Southampton Bead Shop, Bead Buyer & MrBead.

See us back in Harrogate on 27th-28th November – a great show for your Christmas presents.

Earring Design

African EarringSome say earrings are the most important piece of jewellery – because they’re the first to be noticed meeting a lady.

They strand out and showcase a face, making an instant first impression. They should express the wearer’s personality.

Huge EarringEarrings are fashionable right now, and create a mood like no other jewellery. They’re also fun to design – think themes or individual designs that are different. Big and bold is the style of 2021.

Earring DisplayAlthough they can be simple buttons fitted close to the ear, or large long dangles framing half the face. Expensive statement earrings grab attention, while lower-priced designs make great add-on purchases. Combine as sets with necklaces and bracelets to make more money.

Crystal EarringUsually earrings are one-size-fits-all, so there is a lot of sales potential. If you don’t want to shape wire for individual designs, use ready made ear wires, hooks and other earring findings.

Icicle Beads Make Stunning Jewellery

Icicle Beads

Cobalt Blue Electroplated Crystal Large Icicle BeadsIcicles are hot! They’re not just for Christmas.

If you want your designs to stand out, use icicle beads to make dramatic jewellery.

Unusual Purple Mother-of-Pearl Icicle BeadsThese are also inexpensive, as each string has many because they’re slim and top-drilled. Use a few for a necklace and a couple for matching earrings.
