In the Spotlight - Brilliant Beads and Bling AND Little Tee Tee Trims

3 Days to Go!!!

The next to 'spotlights' hold a common thread.  Both the ladies behind these businesses not only LOVE creating things themselves but they also love to help others get creative!

Brilliant Beads and Bling is a family run business based in Saratoga.  After being a community worker for the last 20 years, working in the areas of child abuse and domestic violence, Leanne found that jewellery making provided a welcome respite from that part of my life.  She now works full time in her business and specialises in handmade beaded, crystal and gemstone jewellery. 

 
Leanne offers jewellery parties on the Central Coast & hosts 'Bead and Chat' each Wednesday 10am to 12.30pm in Saratoga. The friendly & relaxed group works on different projects each week & no prior beading experience is needed.

Speak to Brilliant Beads and Bling on Sunday and get creating!!!  Leanne can also be contacted through her facebook page HERE.

...................
The next stallholder has been a regular face at the Handmade Craft Market for over a year near & you have probably watched her business grow each market.

Little Tee Tee started out as a boutique for special-occasion dresses for little girls. After scouring the world for gorgeous embellishments for her clothing range, Suzan decided to share her 'finds' with the crafting community.  Little Tee Tee is now renown for their doilies, gem-stoned appliques, fabric embellishments, rhinestone buttons & laces.

Visit the Little Tee Tee stall on Sunday to pick up a bag full of goodies to help you complete whatever sewing/crafting project you have in mind.  Start your shopping list by popping over to facebook here.
