Welcome to my new blog! I thought it was about time to get back into blogging as I used to enjoy it so much.
As the title of the blog suggests, my name is Sarah and I’m a beader from South Wales, UK. I love seed beads and all the wonderful colours they come in, I enjoy making bead soup and using them in bead embroidery and I have recently completely fallen in love with the versatility of CRAW and the structures that can be created with it.
To kick off, here’s a pic of my Battle of the Beadsmith piece, Architecture Cuff: Atlantis. I had a right mare with this years BOTB design, my muse just was not cooperating at all. This was my 6th design attempt started just 2 weeks before the deadline! The bracelet base started with a vague notion of Celtic interlaced designs and I then incorporated ideas from my first craft of 3D decoupage to build up the layers.
I really loved making this piece and am looking forward to working with CRAW more in the future.
