>We all know it’s Father’s day this Sunday and the girls at the Little Bead Shop are delighted to tell you that, just for this weekend, we are offering a fantastic 10% discount on silver fingerprint jewellery!

Arranging your silver fingerprint jewellery is easy – just pop in to see us or call us on 0131 228 5058 and tell us your requirements.

>Parties at the Little Bead Shop


We love a good party at the Little Bead Shop. Yesterday we had a little girl’s beading party in the shop and I thought I’d share some of the pictures with you!

This is one of several beautiful pieces made by the birthday girl herself!

Parties can be held in our shop, where they are fully supervised, or in your on home. We hold parties for children ages six and up and each party project is decided on after discussion with you and your child. We’re also happy to advise you on the most appropriate projects for your child’s age if you’re unsure.
As well as leaving with a piece of jewellery that they made at the party, everyone also gets a complimentary beady goody bag!
Please call in to see us, give us a ring on 0131 228 5058, or visit our website for more information.

>An update on our lovely new shop


Well, what a week it’s been. We’ve moved, we’re merrily unpacking and are all totally in love with our fantastic new shop!
We’ve still got a fair bit of reorganising to do (and shelves to put up!) but we’re all feeling rather impressed by how much we’ve got done in such a short space of time.
If you would like to see some pics of how the decorating is going, have a look at our pictures on Facebook
We’ve been running our classes as normal throughout (you may have seen us sitting at our lovely new beading table in the shop window if you’ve been strolling through Bruntsfield lately), and I just had to share this beautiful tiara that one of our students made at the weekend!
New dates for our tiara workshops will soon be on our website so we’ll keep you posted!

PS. As alway happens during any move, something has to go wrong, and unfortunately we’ve been having some problems with our phone line this week. We’re hoping to get this sorted out asap, but if you would like to speak to us, you can reach us in the mean time on 07593768127 or email us via our website.

>Fingerprint Jewellery Special Offer: The Perfect Gift for Mother’s Day

Mums. They work hard. They spend all day running around after us, and more often than not still somehow end up doing our laundry even after we’ve left home… I think it’s fair to say that our mums deserve a little TLC, and with Mother’s Day fast approaching on 14 March, we at the Little Bead Shop are here to help you show your appreciation.

In honour of mums everywhere, we are offering a 10% discount on all finger print jewellery ordered by Saturday 13 March.

We can offer you a range of personalised jewellery beyond a charm on a chain. Pair your charms with stunning swarovski crystals, or beautiful freshwater pearls to create a beautiful bracelet or necklace. Choose a texture for the front of your charm and have the fingerprint on the back for a unique reversible pendant, or have a name inscribed for that truly personal touch.

Arranging for your silver fingerprint jewellery is easy. Simply call us on 0131 228 5058 or visit our website for more information.

Mums, we salute you!
