About

Someone asked me to make 500 turtles, then I made a shop!

Retr8bit began as Retro 8bit back in 2011 where I picked up the idea of creating Hama bead designs from another bead artist. After a few conventions, going around showcasing and selling my creations from a box I carried around, a different friend asked me to create 500 items based on his Mine Turtle character (youtube 'asdfmovie'). Just a few months later I had finished the order and had made enough to fund the business's start-up!

Then in 2012, after I'd finished my education, myself and my partner officially started trading at conventions as Retr8bit !!

Whilst I can't claim to have invented the idea, my unique selling point is the 3 dimensional creations, ranging from small chests with a curved head (which is incredibly difficult with normally intended-to-be-flat beads) all the way up to the 17,000 bead chest created on request for an engagement ring reveal box (complete with a heart container!).

I am happy to attempt just about anything! All you have to do is ask!

Welcome to Retr8bit!

I've been creating with Hama Beads for over 2 years now, having sold at several UK based conventions, ranging from International to local, as well as Online.

I only work in MINI beads (2.5mm diameter) placing them individually with tweezers. The work takes time but producing top rate products is what I am for and you will never get second best.

Items designed for constant use (e.g. Keychains, Bag clips, Earrings, etc.) are produced so that they are flatter and more resilient to breaking, many of our customers coming back after over a year wishing to add to their collection.

If you have any questions about custom items/ideas, please don't hesitate to message me here on Etsy or the facebook page http://www.facebook.com/retr8bit/

Thank you and I hope you enjoy my work!
