An excerpt:

"It is not at all surprising that the vogue of making beaded bags is so great, when one can realize the possibility of creating things of exquisite beauty with a few beads and some silk thread...With this little book as a guide it is merely a pleasant divergence to blend sparkling beads with silk, and also enables one to possess that beautiful adjunct that is so necessary to complete Milady's costume..."

Thank you my wonderful customers!

Just an FYI that I'll have go on vacation mode due to upcoming surgery on my eyes. :p No fun but no choice anymore.

Surgery date is February 9th, 2016 and I most likely will start the vacation mode a few days earlier. My Ophthalmologist tells me 4 weeks but if I can I'll open up sooner (I'm kinda like that, wanting to be able to pay the doctor bills means pushing myself as much as I can).

Thank you for understanding and best regards,
