Beadin' marvellous

I’m in love with the beaded collars currently adorning the blouses of the British high street - from H&M’s budget beauties to the studded stunners at Urban Outfitters, they’ve all been jostling for my attention, pleading to be bought for the Christmas party season.

But no! With my head held high, and only a slight pain in my hurt, I walked straight past them and caught the 109 bus home to seek solace in my bead box. Armed with an old Topshop chiffon blouse that had been relegated to the back of the drawer since an incident with an industrial tumble drier, I decided to create my own little touch of shimmery glamour.

The final bead was sewn firmly into place in front of Strictly (about 30 mins after we were due to be at my friend Euan’s birthday drinks), and my new beaded collar blouse made its debut that evening. I have a feeling that’s not the last we’ll be seeing of my new beaded beauty before the party season is out.
