What To do On a Teachers' Strike Day ?
The Brentwood Bead Shop. It therefore seemed an ideal opportunity to have a girlie day and make some lovely jewellery into the bargain. Kellie, Georgina (her daughter and Bethany's friend) Bethany and I arrived in an Aladdin's cave of beads, and all things bead-like and under the careful eye of Carol (and with some help & advice) we had a wonderful time designing and producing bracelets, necklaces and pendants.
Kellie made a stunning black and white set, Georgina a beautiful crystal rainbow set, and Bethany a rose quartz and crystal set. I cannot recommend the shop highly enough, there are enough beads and examples of work in there to keep you busy for many hours and I am already eagerly planning my next visit. All in all it was a lovely mother/daughter/friends day and we finished it off with a tasty Chinese meal :)
Come on teachers' more strike action please!
Will post some photos tomorrow x
