Nestled amongst the petals...

Actually, its not just petals in Bella Fleur, but all manner of marvellous things, including some very beautiful beads! If you can look past the fabulous scarves, handbags and flowers, there are some new items of jewellery waiting for you, whether you prefer your necklaces with semi precious stones, sparkles or pendants!

Getting ready for February...

February may still be a month of winter, but you cannot help but look towards spring; just like the daffodils scattered across the grass, a few yellow beads go a long way and who doesn't feel a little bit warmer with yellow, even if its not actually the sun's rays!

Add some blue and a dash of yellow... spring is in the making! xx
