I have been making jewellery for 20 years now, It is still as enjoyable today as it was all those years ago when I bought my first kit to make my first pair of earrings. I am as happy threading beads on beading thread or tiger tail wire to make a necklace as I am to crochet a chain or knit a choker with wire and beads. I was brought up with craft and I have always enjoyed knitting and crocheting. When I started making jewellery it was a continuation of my life with craft so of course I just continued to knit and crochet, but not just with wool I had a new material - wire. I love experimenting with ideas and so my designs are constantly changing as my ideas evolve. My work therefore has many styles although the over riding feature is the delicate nature of the designs regardless of whether I am stringing beads or knitting with them - I work with a variety of beads including freshwater pearls, semi- precious beads, Swarovski crystals…

My work therefore has many styles although the over riding feature is the delicate nature of the designs regardless of whether I am stringing beads or knitting with them - I work with a variety of beads including freshwater pearls, semi- precious beads, Swarovski crystals and any other beads that will add colour! Over the years my range of styles has developed and so you will see a large variety of items on here in due course. My greatest achievement to date is being a winner of the Small business Sunday on twitter by gaining a Re tweet on twitter from Theo Paphitis as @pearlysmith . Please take time to look at my items on here - if you like my jewellery but not necessarily the items currently in my shop, please contact me as I am happy to make to commission too!
