Chasing Beads has had a revamp...

Hi all,

Yesterday I gave my Folksy shop a bit of a revamp.  I've had my banner and avatar tweeked so my logo actually shows in full and uses all the space it should do.  Actually you'll notice it on my blog too (look up).

I'm also in the process of updating my descriptions, making sure all the relevant keywords are being used so it makes it easier for you to search for my jewellery when I list new pieces and find me on Google.  I did this with the help of Folksy using this fabulous article,

Take a peek at my new look and let me know what you think,

Also, if you've got time, why not let me know what other items you would like to see in my shop and I'll see what I can do.

That's it for now...speak soon x

Folksy Friday: An array of beautiful handmade items

Hi everyone,

It's been a week since I've blogged and I haven't blogged for the A-teamers this week, so I'm not going to have a theme this week, I'm going to pick some of my most favourite items from the A-Team over the last week.  Firstly, here are some of the items I've listed...a bit of a chain maille theme this week:

So that's me, here are some other items from the A-Team:

I hope you have enjoyed seeing these beautiful items as much as I have

Folksy Friday: Old MacDonald Had a Farm.....

Don't panic!  You're not going mad, it is infact only Thursday but I'm off out early tomorrow so I'm getting everything ready tonight.

Well the title is a little misleading as I'm actually I'm off to London Zoo rather than Old MacDonald's Farm with my friend and her kids, so my theme for this week is going to be hats.....only joking, it's obviously about animals so here are some fabulous items to do with just that:

As always, just click on the link to take you straight through their shops. 

Have a great day!

The August A Teamers!

So, for the month of August I've given myself the challenge of joining the August A Teamers, which is to basically make and list a new item every you can imagine this is going to be quite challenging....especially as I'm moving house 2 weeks tomorrow and have the lucky job of packing up my house - ha ha

This is my contribution so far:

And here are some of my favs from some of the other Folksy sellers:
