Meet Chris :-
I started beading about eight years ago, and have been hooked ever since.
I love the way that I am able to transform a pile of beads into a unique piece of jewellery. Each bead is individually stitched into place to complete a pattern. By using different sized, shaped or coloured beads can make the end item look completely different.
As each item often takes numerous hours to make I feel that it is important to use top quality beads, as well as sterling silver clasps for necklaces and bracelets, and ear wires for the earrings.
I enjoy choosing the beads to use for each project, there are hundreds of different shades of each colour, as well as the different finishes on the beads, so the choice is endless. I am able to make jewellery in any colour or design of your choice, and to match any outfit.
I also enjoy crocheting, and make mug and cafetiere covers and tea cosies, as well as some crocheted flower brooches. These make both lovely and useful presents. I am happy to make bespoke items.
