Wire beads and more
We had better start the post by saying well done to Pen, who has won a bit bag of die cut bows to play with - and then Patricia who has won the lovely canvas which was made by Katie. Those will be winging their way to you.
Here at Hochanda, we are trying to bring you diversity, both in products, but also for peoples skill set. A kit that we can highly recommend for beginners is brought to us by the Crazy Wire Company. They have put a nice little kit together for us to create a Wire Bead bracelet. When you first see this, you may think it looks quite tricky - you could not be more wrong.
I had a play with it this afternoon, and within minutes I had the knack - and then started experimenting, adding my own beads to see what it looked like. I'm quite happy with the results:

You can see from this photograph, I used a pretty shambhala bead in the centre of this pretty blue wire
And in the centre of the lilac ribbon, I had an iridescent sparkly bead
And here I threaded on some little seed beads.
I really enjoyed working with this kit. Do look out for the Crazy Wire Company joining you on your TV screens.
Obviously the craft world is being dominated with the CHA show, currently in full swing in the USA. We have Jamie and Paul out there, looking for the new trends that we can expect to hit our shores in 2016.
There are a lot of familiar crafty faces out there, including the lovely Sarah Hurley....good luck Sarah, we hope you have a great CHA :)
