So when Goldmine Boutique held a bead party on facebook in early December I saw my chance to rectify my lack of red beads. I was lucky enough to get the chance to buy 2 gorgeous red beads and a lovely purple one, and when enquiring about payment methods (I'd bought from their website before but not chosen beads via their photos on facebook) the lovely people at Goldmine were keen to point out that I could choose a 4th bead free, in their buy 3 uniques get the 4th free promotion. So I chose another red bead, with glitter dots! (Glitter is getting to be quite a habit recently in my bead buying.)
I love getting parcels from Goldmine, they are always lovely. This one had a padded cushion in a box and even better had a FIFTH FREE BEAD, even more special was the fact it was a teal coloured bubble bead which is EXACTLY what I'd been looking at the week before but I had decided to be good(ish) and leave it for another day. It came as a surprise because even though they said they were putting in "presents" over the holiday period I had completely forgotten about this and I wasn't expecting another bead!
Lovely ooaks (uniques) all lined up... and I finally got to make a red and green bracelet I was happy with.
|I've used lighthouse as the focal point as we used to live by Roath Park Lake in Cardiff, Wales (UK) |
which has a lighthouse on the boating lake.
|My Penguin bead has found a new home too, next to red stripe!|
I love this bracelet and have been thinking of it as my "Christmas Bracelet" as that was the original intention, however driving home from work tonight it also struck me that the Welsh Flag has red and green in it's colours so until next December this may well get known as my "Welsh Bracelet"...
