Full swing

Managed to get everything ready for August and even the photos and labels have been done - holiday well and truly earnt! This month's collection for Battle Bygones includes these stunning handmade lampwork pendants which have such detail, and are hung on adjustable hemp cord.
I love the lampwork beads for their individuality and how every bead has its own swirls and depth. Available as a glossy or matt finish, necklaces and bracelets, there is definitely something for everyone...

Summer 2019 - mixing up the recycled with the new

These beautiful strands of recycled glass heishi beads are the most amazing colours and I could probably happily just twist them around my wrist as is! 
However, I actually plan on mixing them in with the new collection of handmade lampwork beads, made by a good friend in Cambridge... look out for the new designs coming over the next couple of weeks!

Luscious Lampwork

I was recently on searching for the perfect beads for a custom order, and came across a fabulous business in the South of England who produce the most beautiful handmade glass lampwork beads. Every single bead I looked at was gorgeous! So, I bought the beads for my custom order and then immediately ordered some more...

Sadly, many of the beads are a little out of my usual price range, but I will be splashing out on a few of the pendants and larger beads which I will post on arrival. In the meantime, if you love your lampwork and want to discuss possibilities, just shout!

Summer fun

I adore these bracelets - the perfect way for mixing up some colours with a tassel for fun! 
The beads are so light, you hardly know you are wearing them, and you can double or even triple for maximum effect!

Feeling nutty about Tagua

I remember visiting the London Fashion Show a few years ago and seeing a table of Tagua nut jewellery and being blown away by the colours and textures! Its a fabulous bead to use, because they combine such vivid colours but with a completely natural, earthy texture and are very light, which is perfect for summer. The only downside? Patiently hand drilling all those holes...

All of the necklaces & bracelets here are currently available at Battle Bygones, in Battle and are priced at £16 necklace and £8 bracelet.
