I decided to do the hugs and kisses bracelet in smaller beads.  I have used 6mm, 4mm, 8/0, 11/0 and 15/0.

Well it’s here the long-awaited new challenge…
BFF ( Beading friends forever!)
We are so excited to be able to bring you a brand new challenge blog aimed specifically at jewellery making. Jewellery making is becoming so popular yet there are very few places for people to share their creations so we hope to help inspire you all but also to be inspired by your creations. No matter what your preferred style you will all be able to take part in our challenge each month. There will be two parts each month to our challenge – a theme and a pattern/tutorial. The members of the design team use many different techniques and I hope between us we can offer some inspiration to you. We also want to show you how varied one pattern can be depending on the choice of beads and colours.
And what could be better than learning new techniques but to win a £15 voucher to spend at Beads Direct that will be picked at random, so you do not need to have been beading for long, most of us havent, and we are also learning along the way with you.
So onto our first challenge
1) February challenge - Hugs and Kisses
2) Anything Goes
