Merry Christmas 

Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and creative Christmas xx  This is our table all set ready for lunch! Did I mention that we are having a sprout themed Christmas?! The wreath is made from real sprouts, but see my previous post for my other awesome sprout decorations. 

Maternity Leave

Aka: unlimited crochet time until baby arrives!! Just to let you all know that I am now on maternity leave and I am halting my restringing work until the arrival of baby C.  Once I am in the swing of this looking after a baby thing, I will resume my restringing which I hope will …

I’m back!!

To start with an apology. I am sorry that I have been AWOL a lot recently! Things have been manic! I have still been here in the background and answered all your emails - just posting anything seemed to get away me! To summarise...we sold our flat and moved into my parents’ house for a …

Comic Con Crazy

I decided to treat myself to new nails for Christmas! I have wanted long almond nails for ages (ask anyone on my Pinterest feed!!) so I did it! I got up one morning and squeezed into a last-minute cancellation. It never once even crossed my mind that I would physically struggle to pick up any …

About Me

Hi I don't really have a job title as such but "Pearl Restringer" seems to fit well enough. I am self-employed and have been doing what I do for a living for about three years now. Before then playing with beads was just a hobby - now I get paid for doing what I love! I …
