I'm a big fan of charity shops and to add to my handmade ceramic beads I started looking for jewellery that I could break up and up-cycle into new jewellery designs. I also visited Purple Moon beads who are over in Ventnor. It is a small shop but they have some useful glass chips and seed beads at a reasonable price.
This is their website http://www.purplemoon-beads.co.uk/ they seem to specialise in chainmaile which I haven't tried yet.
Using some more of my ceramic beads and my up-cycled beads I have made some more creations, of which some I wear and some I am going to put for sale on this blog and in my Etsy store.
