Lebeado, Jesmond







First , Nat has money to spend and we visit Lebeado , a magical sweetie shop dedicated to the bead and jewellery lover . Beads from all over the world line the shelves in gorgeous pots all beautifully labelled . A mosaic table in the middle of the shop is set out for customers to select their pots of beads , place them in the patterns they want , and then string them up . On Tuesday I watched as Nat designed and made a very colourful bracelet and also bought a ready made Pandora style charm bracelet . Today we returned as she had been given money by her Grandma in Belfast ( and her bracelets had been the subject of much fascination during her stay there the previous two days ) , and she made a further two . And , after sitting watching for fifteen minutes , I decided to have a go myself .... Go for it mum she said ... but half an hour later I wondered if she was quite so keen as I had chopped and changed my mind about mine six or seven times . She was however patience itself and keen for me to get it right and as I wanted it rather than rush to finish .
I have a feeling we will be back .
