For those of you wanting a bit of creative springtime inspiration why not catch Karen Mather down at the ARC Craft Fair at the ARC in Caterham, Surrey. She will be exhibiting at the show on Saturday the 6th of April. You can find her selling a selection of her handmade jewellery as well as doing demonstrations. You will be able to see just what goes into each piece made by Karen for Fruttituttibeadcandy.
There will also be a cafe at the venue so you can grab yourself a coffee and a slice of cake while you are learning something new. Check out the link for the Arc and the Craft Fair here: http://www.the-arc-caterham.co.uk/index.html#/arc–craft-fair-april/
However in the meantime Karen has been busy creating new pieces for Fruttituttibeadcandy:
Pearls are traditionally known for being the birthstone for June, but that’s no reason that anyone can’t wear them all year round. They have that lovely iridescent surface quality to them, pearls are so special when worn alone as a delicate strand of beads. But they can be just as beautiful when worn with other beads or metals. Want something a little on the unusual side? The pearl beads of this bracelet are held securely in place by a wire structure. Almost like little moons on your wrist, this bracelet is serenely beautiful as well as contemporary in it’s design.
The metal beads on this necklace are genuine vintage! The silver beads are fixed with some pretty midnight blue seed seperating beads. The graduating sizes found in this necklace give it that real vintage ‘Mad Men’ effect. It’s the ideal necklace to go with your summer shift dress, or even that prom gown for later this year.
Keep an eye on the Fruttituttibeadcandy Etsy shop for more stunning new designs as they are added.
