Sarah Millsop’s Bicone Cluster Necklace

Ambassadors, Jewellery, Sarah Millsop

“These Bicone Clusters are quick and simple to make, and a great way to add glamour and glitz to an outfit. You can make as many of them as you like and thread onto cords or ribbons to decorate. I’ve made three for this necklace and used left over bicones from previous projects! You only need 12 bicones per beaded cluster and 8 seed beads, so it can be an inexpensive make and perfect for beginners.” – Sarah Millsop

Are You Ready for International Waffle Day?

Baking, Occasions

The story behind International Waffle Day is a rather amusing one. The tradition began in Sweden (where the day is mostly celebrated) and is honoured every year on 25th March. On the same day, the Swedish celebrate ‘Our Lady’s Day’, or the Feast of the Annunciation. In vernacular Swedish, ‘Our Lady’s Day’ translates as Vårfrudagen, which, funnily enough, sounds very similar to Våffeldagen – meaning ‘Waffle Day’. Luckily for us, this confusion lead to the creation of a day that honours one of our favourite breakfast treats: the waffle. To join our European friends in commemoration of this day, we’ve created 4 waffle recipes for you!
