Making Your Head Spin … with ideas!

I don’t know about you, but my level of bead obsession means that I want choices. I want to loom, do bead embroidery, try my hand at precision-driven, delica-imperative bead boxes and other 3D patterns … and now, I’ll be able to save loads of time when making French beaded flowers, gluing beads on objects, kumihimo, looming, and multi-strand necklaces!

Our newest tool? The bead spinner!

This gizmo is quite lovely – perfect for bookshelf display.

Powered by a spin of the hand, it’s small size means that you don’t need a large quantity of beads for it to work efficiently.

Well crafted, it facilitates bead pick up at any speed … but not too fast (!) or the beads may go flying!

If you do any seed bead projects where you need lots of the same colour bead, the spinner is a marvel. Beads simply glide onto the needle! Can you imagine how fast some of your projects could have been if you hadn’t had to string on One. Tiny. Bead. At a time?

Check out these these replacement curved big eye needles and these insertable trays, which allow you to switch out a tray for a pattern of alternating colours.

BTW, we also stock the kumihimo starter pack, in case you’re curious!

I hope your head is spinning with the possibilities!

Your beads on the brain bud, Cathy
