Aww that's lovely Dawn ;D I'm so tempted to do the walk myself but don't know if I'd have the bottle! Will have a proper mulling over of it after the Beadathon

I'm really tempted too! Going to speak to BF about it next weekend  :) The only thing that worries me is raising enough money!

Howdy Sarah,  for this project BCCA need matched pairs of beads in hot oranges reds and yellows (with or without a touch of black). The beads do not have to be identical, just similar in size and decoration so that they are obviously a pair. Choice of decoration is up to you (goldstone would be fine). Any size mandrel is fine too, though 2mm's work well. All beads need to be annealed and cleaned.
