Monthly Make - April

Ok a tiara can be quite a fiddly item to make so this month I am going to balance this with a very simple challenge.  This month I used my old lampwork beads to create a unique (because every one of my lampwork beads is unique) piece of wall art!
This is very easy to create.  All you need is a box frame and lots of your old unused beads.  You can be as creative as you like, colour coordinate your beads, add a beautiful watercolour background, use striking frames in colour contrast to the beads .....the list is endless!

If you don't work with beads you could use buttons, cotton reels, dried flowers, springs, nuts and bolts,  ... there are so many possibilities.  You could turn this simple idea into a work of art and I would love to see your interpretations.

  1. Love this idea Sarah. I put all my lampwork beads in a large jar on our welsh dresser. It reminds me of a jar of sweeties! When its full i think ill pop some in a frame like this. :-) xx

    1. Thank you! Mind you that sounds like a good idea too. I bet they look lovely! xx
