About

Beautifully Handcrafted

Hi, I'm Bonita, the brains behind Beaky. I started my shop in 2007. I had been designing and making for years and giving my creations as gifts. After having my second son and not enjoying working evenings at the bank. I decided it was about time I put my creativity to better use. Little did I know that I would go from working 3 evenings to 7!

I make and design all of my items and pride myself on them being of the highest quality. My aim is to bring beautifully handcrafted items in to every home. Most of my products are made in limited amounts making them truly unique. I love happy people and want my products to put smiles on faces and bring a little happiness into the world. Using bright colours and vintage finds make my items stand out from the crowd. I am currently making a few changes to Beaky. The plan is to make it more sophisticated and include beautiful Wedding products to help create the perfect Wedding Day.

I live in Leicestershire, England and work from the dining room table of my Victorian Terrace.

I remember Knitting a cute instersia (two colours) tank top when I was about 11 years old. I love to knit, sew, crochet and I am constantly trying out new crafts. My mum taught me to knit, although for years I knitted the pearl stitch incorrectly!! I have a textile GCSE and an Art A Level (obviously I have other qualifications too!) Everything else is self taught. I love the challenge of figuring out how to do things. About 5 years ago I bought a vintage crochet book and taught myself how to crochet. I love the instruction illustrations and want to design my own one day.

As a child I always wanted to be a fashion designer and had a portfolio of drawings. I even designed my own Wedding dress, which I still want to make one day. Etsy has given me the amazing opportunity to live out my dream.

The name for my shop came about from a nickname and is really just an anagram of my first Initial - B and my surname - Keay (pronounced Key).

I hope you enjoy browsing my little shop and if you have any questions or special requests please get in touch.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit about me.

P.s. I also sell my products wholesale and will email you my catalogue upon request.
