Welcome to my stop on the Magical Carpet Ride! My name is Sarah and I live in the small but beautiful country of Wales, Land of Song & Rugby, unfortunately I cannot sing a note and we lost the match to England yesterday, boo hiss! If there is one thing we Welsh hate it's losing to England! Apart from being Welsh, I am also married with 1 son and I work part-time for a government department, I am lucky to have an interesting job that I enjoy and my work colleagues are all lovely so I don't begrudge the time it takes away from doing the thing that I love, beading. I have been beading for eight years and have tried many techniques including stringing wirework and chainmaille but beadweaving is my favourite. I love the colours and finishes of the tiny seed beads and the fact that you can make almost anything out of them if you have the patience!I hope you enjoy your visit here and I am looking forward to getting to know you all through visiting your blogs!

I am a bit of a hippy at heart, although I am a bit to young to have been a flower child (I was a New Romantic as a teenager). I love the individuality and colourfulness of the arty, hippy style and like to express that love of colour in my jewellery and I seem to be increasingly drawn to nature as inspiration for my beadwork.
