Things 2 Do in London: Londons Bead Shop!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Earlier that day in London i was at Liberties eying some very pretty beaded braceletes with a blue eye bead in the middle, only when i flipped the price tag i found to my astonishement that they cost £70-100!!!

The bracelet was so NOT worth £20 let alone £70+! I let it go of course… later in the day as i was exploring a street in London i have never been to before i stumbled upon the London Bead Shop!

The place was AMAZING! So many beads to choose from… i went haywire inside, going from one little plexi tray to another… putting down beads and picking up beads… i finally settled on a blue eye bead like the one i had seen earlier bit in a different size and shape. Then it was time to choose the clasps and the thread… again i took my time thinking about the colors and types of thread… and which clasp would go best with it…

In the end? I bought my bracelet for… guess how much?!

£0.75! Yes… that’s right… 75 pence! All i have to do is put the pieces together and wear it and it would look better than Liberty’s bracelet 😀

I will take a picture once i put it together… simple yet very cute and to the point and i had a great time choosing it with uttermost care… o it will be unique b3d!!!
