I need help! My mum is travelling to England next week, and I am going to ask her to pick me up either bead while she is in London. I know that I can get them online, but I think it would be nice to get one that was actually in England. Smile
There are two shops that I think will be closest to where my mum is staying. One is called John Lewis on Oxford Street, and the other one is The Amber Centre on St. Christopher's Place (which I have been to a few years ago). Has anyone been to these shops?
Does anyone have these beads IRL? I would love to see them from all angles to be able to decide which one I would like my mum to get me.

Tea Party down at the bottom. I think this is a very iconic bead but I don't use it very often.

Love Spoons at about 7 O'Clock. I find this a more useful bead and particularly like the other sides with interlace patterns on them.

I have the love spoons I really like it! It's easy to combine with all sorts of other beads, I like the more round ones Very Happy

The teaparty is a wonderful bead for using on top of a fantasychain. I have them both, love them both. If I had to choose, I couldn't. But. The lovespoons is easier to use (on a bracelet) , but the teaparty is a real piece of art.

I added a picture of the teaparty.

I like both also but I only have the love spoons. I thought I had a picture of it buy I can't find it. the design is really great and I think it would be a lovely sentiment for you and your mum. My mom gave me a real Welsh love spoon but it broke so I love the silver one because that will never break Smile

I love the Tea Party, but Love spoons is probably the most useful.

John Lewis is a big department store so I'm not sure what their stock of beads is like, it may be worth checking with them in advance Wink

I love tea party and use it a lot, I just adore the insaneness of the design.
