Crafty people would all know this stage, I call it mix and match, its when you are starting something new and looking around a shop or online, you already have a basket full of possibilities but you are still needing that one item, or possibly two items, that will just tie it all together and make it one of those wonderful masterpieces. Anyone reading this been in that position? I’ve been in that situation many times.
Bead lovers will love this next business, it is certainly a wonderland for them and perhaps people making a quilt or bag and wanting to add a little extra to it. This business is one where you can walk in, or take a look on their website and within a matter of moments, have so many possibilities that you forget what you were looking for in the first place.
Selonj Beads & Craft is an Adelaide business located at 46A Churchill Road in Ovingham, if you have trouble finding the business, it is on the left side of the road as you head North on Churchill Road, about 400 meters from the Churchill and Torrens intersection and just before the corner of Clifton and Churchill Road. The building has above it in big white letters on a black background ‘Bush Ballad Collectables’ which is the business next to it. There you can find some lovely pearls if you are looking to make a pearl necklace, add them to a bag to give it a bit extra, glass beads or stardust beads, charms, drops and even pendants, books and so much more.
If you have maybe never done beading before then don’t panic, they hold classes for both the beginner and the professional beader, there are also regular classes in basic techniques so don’t worry if it has been awhile since you picked up some beads, you can slide on into one of these classes to refresh your memory 🙂
