July 2017 - Celebrating 33 years of Spellbound!

This month we are celebrating our 33rd birthday at Spellbound with a few freebies and some new stuff – this is what is going on right now, there will be more coming along later in the month.

For Everyone:- There are sweeties for all this month – call into the shop, or place an order online, and sweeties will find their way into your package.

For the lucky one (or two) a day:- Also, for one shop customer and one mail order customer each day there will be another little surprise making its way into your package – we have a bumper package of Preciosa goodies that we will be giving away over the course of the month including beady pens, sparkly pencils, stylus’ and an assortment of jewellery made using Preciosa specialist beads.

For Everyone:- New Free Download – Fabulous Florals.  Julie has once again been playing with beads, this time taking a pack each of floral mix and leaf mix and making an abundance of floral jewellery.  There are plenty of ideas on the download including

1 bunch of necklaces web

these beautiful necklaces.  You can buy a pack that contains all the beads and findings you need to make up to 25 necklaces and bracelets and 10 pairs of earrings; buy a pack each of the leaf mix and the flower mix and add seed beads and findings from your stash, or use the designs to inspire you to dig into your beading stash and make a whole new summery jewellery wardrobe.

Free Download Number Two
The Crest of a Wave Necklace - just added to our Marina Collection, a selection of free project downloads in holiday shades.  Soft teals and blues, shell and wood, and you'll also find a very bright and funky set perfect for a beach in Hawaii in there too!

Two lucky winners:- buy in the shop, or mail order this month and you will go into a prize draw to win one of two £35 Spellbound gift vouchers.  We will pick the winners at the beginning of August – one shop customer, and one mail order customer.

Free Download Numbers three, four, five ... A Whole New Collection!
Inspired by the sumptuous textures of fine fabrics and the rich colours of spices and coloured silks we bring you The Silk Route the perfect collection of jewellery for balmy summer evenings.  Add a dash of colour to a simple outfit or team with a posh frock for maximum impact.  Click here to see the following designs and lots more.


Visiting the Shop?:- The free beads bucket has returned, there are all sorts of beads and findings in the mix, and for every £15 you spend you can choose a bag from the mix.  *Shop customers only, while stocks last.

Completely Random:- There will be giveaways popping up here and there during the month, we have already given away 2 packs of blossom beads, five pots of twin beads and two project bead packs, four mixes and two Pam's Poppy patterns, and this week there are four kits up for grabs ... and who knows what next so keep your eyes open and you may just be a winner.

Good luck everyone!
