Bead Magazine Bridal Jewellery Challenge

Beading Beads

Bead Magazine asked us to support the Bead Soup challenge in their upcoming Weddings Special (Issue 54, out on 16 April).  The Bead Soup challenge asks three beaders to create jewellery with the same base pack of beads and supplies, and put their individual spin on it.  If you plan to make your own jewellery for an upcoming wedding, or are a beader who makes jewellery for wedding parties, it’s well worth having a look at this issue.
