With 2013 drawing to a close, we’re looking forward to Spring 2014, and of course, wedding season!

(Bridesmaid dresses by Two Birds)
Just arrived at BDi are the stunning glass pearl beads in soft coral. We now offer 14 colours and 2 sizes in these superb quality pearls, which are perfect for bracelets and necklaces as well as hair accessories. Also sticking to the coral theme, we have some pretty pale peach rose beads, with which you could make sweet flower girl or bridesmaid’s jewellery. Try wiring some of the roses to our filigree hairclips (item 4 above) for a quick, cute and girly hair accessory or wire wrap on to one of our hair combs or hair pins.
To set off the soft coral shades of the bridesmaid dresses, why not add a touch of silver and a dash of sparkle? At BDi we have a gorgeous range of diamante brooches that could be pinned to the waist of the dress for a vintage look. Try using brooches on hair accessories, pin on to your chair sashes, make brooch bouquets or maybe pin on to your thank you cards so your cards come with a built in gift! The brooch shown above (item number 2) is 5½cm wide and has both a pin and a loop, a perfect versatile gift or wedding favour.
Top row l-r: Faceted crystal bicones in champagne, peach rose beads, diamante brooch/pendant, 6mm pearl beads in soft coral.
Bottom Row l-r: Fancy filigree barrette, faceted crystal bicones in light rose, Swarovski 5301 peach bicones, diamante cross brooch.
