When I closed my website a few years ago I was not sure if it was to be forever or whether me and my Bead Trail just needed a rest, a break perhaps after ten years of extreme hard work.
During our time apart I met with other Artists and explored different creative mediums, and now we have come together again with a greater understanding of who we are and what and where we want to be.
So you will find that the site is familiar in many ways but our focus is now purely on beadweaving, bead embroidery and beads for knitting and crochet. Many of the seed beads are now sold in bigger packs and some are available to buy in bulk quantities.
I am passionate about sharing my love of beadwork so for those who are new to the craft I am creating a beginners section, here you will find information and knowledge about beads, threads, needles etc. and plenty of beading tips which I hope will help those new to beading.
I have also listened to those customers who like to shop by number and not colour, so you now have a choice to shop Delicas by colour or number.
Miyuki 15 and 11 seed beads are still listed in colour sections but also numerically within their sections, the number 9 has been dropped from all codes so that the colours are standardised with the Miyuki factory number, hopefully this will make it easier to search for a particular colour.
There is still a lot of work still to do, products to update and pictures to take so please keep checking back if you don't find what you are looking for the first time, otherwise please email me in our contact us section and I will do my best to help.
Thank you for reading and enjoy shopping!
