Fran shares with us her love of beading to create jewellry, gifts, embellished bags and more.
Beading has been a passion for Fran for a number of years now and she shares this with her local beading group in Lincolnshire.
Over the years numerous patterns have been created (and tested) and Fran has now combined these into several books which are available from us, here in the shop, as well as several small jewelly kits to get you started (again the shop).
Project 1 book is entitled Nice & Easy – which does what it says, and Project 2 Book has the subtitled – Multi Tasking, in which Fran combines the taught techniques.
In the video we talk about a delightful bracelet which is a work-in-progress as far as the pattern is concerned – so watch this space!
She also has the delightful little book entitled – Frans Little Bags (also in the shop) – together with a little workshop when we caught up with her at the Textiles in Focus exhibition in Cottenham.
To enjoy all these – quick search ‘beading’.
If you are interested in having Fran come to give a talk or workshop you can contact her directly at
and she will be demonstating the the Textiles in Focus exhibition 2014 in Cottenham Village, Cambs in February.
