Mike was also one of the guest artists invited to demonstrate his beadmaking skills at the very successful and well-attended first UK Flame-Off in 2008 organised by Tuffnell Glass.

All of the beads for sale are made with Italian, German or British glass from companies such as Moretti, Effetre and Reichenbach. Each bead is annealed and then cleaned before being put up for sale in the shop. Mike's work ranges from small bead sets to silver-riveted beads suitable for the various 'charm bracelet' systems such as Troll, Biagi, Pandora and the rest and on to large single focal beads.

All jewellery is made using the best materials available as accents to Mike's beads and every piece of jewellery is carefully described to include every component.

We ship internationally at flat rate prices, you see the cost before you buy. All beads and jewellery pieces are shipped carefully packed in bubble wrap and a cardboard box mailer for maximum protection of your purchase. We accept Paypal and all major credit cards. Payment by credit card can be over the phone using our secure processing system, the UK-based Streamline credit card company. If you prefer to pay online via a secure credit card processing system, we can also set up a payment gateway which will link you to our online WorldPay processing system.
