UK Beaders

4th Anniversary Project (2010)

To celebrate the 5th anniversary of UK Beaders, and it's forum's 4th anniversary our members decided to join in a keyring/bag charm project this year to raise funds to continue the development of the UK Beaders site and forum, and to raise money for our chosen charity: WaterAid.

All members joining in received as many bag charms/keyrings as they themselves sent in, and were free to make whatever style, in any materials they wanted to!
Our inspiration was simply sharing beautiful beaded creations with our friend in the UK Beaders community!

3rd Anniversary Bracelet Project 2009

To celebrate the 4th anniversary of UK Beaders, and it's forum's 3rd anniversary our members have decided to work on a group project to create a charm bracelet to raise funds to continue the development of the UK Beaders site and forum, and to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Our theme/inspiration for the bracelet is purple (with) silver.

We have had such a great response to this project that we have been able to create two beautiful bracelets. They both feature a wide range of charms each individually handcrafted and donated by one of our talented members.
Both bracelets are sterling silver Figaro chains with sterling silver bolt ring clasps, tags (and findings).To find out more about the charms featured in this bracelet and their creators, and to view the completed bracelets please see below.

Anniversary Bracelet Project April-June 2007

To celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the formation of UK Beaders, and the 1st anniversary of it's forum the members of UK Beaders decided to work on a group project. We decided to create and raffle a charm bracelet to raise funds to continue the development of the UK Beaders site and forum, and to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Each component was individually handcrafted and donated by one of our talented members. It is a testament to the creativity and generosity of the members of the UK Beaders forum that we ended up producing two beautiful bracelets due to the wealth of charms that were donated.

Our theme/inspiration was flower gardens, in pink and silver. The bracelets feature sterling silver, fine silver, gemstone, crystal, lampwork, glass, seed bead, and polymer clay charms. To find out more about the charms featured in this bracelet and their creators please see below.
