Pearls Back In Fashion In 2022

PearlsIn 2022, pearls are returning. This time more playful in a contemporary market. Jewellery designers are creating pearls to appeal to a younger market. They’re also selling well in menswear this year. So, now’s the time to make more pearl jewellery!

Pearl BeadsOn the catwalks, models are sporting a single pearl earring, and mismatching earrings. Odd-shaped, baroque pearls are popular – where every pearl becomes unique. Smaller perfect round pearls aren’t as fashionable now, but coloured pearls are in.

Pearl NecklaceThe fashion world are also putting pearls all over faces, hair, clothes, shoes, bags, and everywhere they can. Try making sets of a pearl choker necklace, bracelet and earrings.

Pearl DiscountPearls are the gemstone for June: so now’s the time to make June jewellery! Grace Kelly once said ‘pearls are the queen of gems and the gems of queens’

For 20% off any of our pearls (only), key P20 in box at checkout – 3-days only.

Spring Beads

Spring BeadsSpring is a time of resurrection and birth – this means yellow, green and light colours, and flower beads.

Make a bright and matching spring necklace, bracelet & earrings. Use small beads with subtle silver spacers for style. Sell them in a white or light-blue box.

Green BeadsGreen beads are good for spring jewellery – other colours to look for are yellow citrine, light green chrysoprase, chrysocolla, chalcedony and chalcedony.

Aquamarine BeadsAquamarine is March’s stone and ideal for spring jewellery. It lifts spirit, and is excellent for meditation, bringing peace and serenity. Some even say it helps married couples solve their problems!

Chalcedony is also a good gemstone for graceful spring jewellery. Its delicate, light-blue colour reminds of early morning mountain sky. Chalcedony is a feminine stone, full of yin energy. Thought to balance the emotions, bring stamina, and promote kindness and charity.

Bead Fair Reports

Norwich Bead Fair
Norwich Bead Fair March 2022This was our best Norwich show ever – with record attendance and takings! The hall was so busy the first few hours, visitors had to queue.

Everyone had a great time. We’ll be back in Norwich on Sunday 10th July.

Newark Gem n Bead Fair
Newark Gem n Bead FairLike most Gem n Bead fairs, bead visitors were down, a lot. Newark Gem n Bead FairNewark Gem n Bead FairEspecially on the Sunday – wish these shows were just one day. We setup on the Friday: so it’s three days for exhibitors. Picture above: Nigel with Michael from Bead Buyer.

If Newark isn’t better in September, next year we won’t attend. We had a lot of fun: but it is business!

Beads Up North

Beads Up NorthOnly four more weeks for the Big One at Haydock Racecourse. We’ve sold a lot of pre-paid tickets already – so expect the show to be booming!

Many exhibitors selling beads, lace, textiles and all things craft. Beautiful venue close to the M6 and about 20-miles from Liverpool and Manchester. Don’t miss this long-standing show!
