Handmade Glass Beads and Jewellery, paper mâché

Cowes, United Kingdom

Announcement    Hi, I’m Anna, I started to make my own glass beads in my ‘little house’ in my garden of my home on the Isle of Wight back in 2005. In 2017 saw my workshop transform into a brand new workspace with plenty of light and ventilation. I now offer classes in glass bead making for one or two people. If you are interested please convo me via Etsy, via Facebook - facebook.com/annahaywardglassbeads or email annahaywardglassbeads [!at] gmail.com for more details.

Each bead is individually created and formed in a flame. The beads are then annealed in a kiln, making them strong and resistant to cracking and breaking.

I particularly like experimenting with new shapes, colour , size and colour combinations.

My beads can be bought on their own to make striking, unusual and unique jewellery or as my own highly individual necklaces, bracelets, earrings and bag charms.

You may notice that in addition to my handmade beads there are now paper mâché figures in my shop. Whether a cat, dog, fox, princess or palace, each one is one of a kind. After all, real dogs, cats, foxes and princesses are all different!!!!

I will always do my best to get your purchase safely packaged and sent to you as soon as I possibly can.

A love of colour and an addiction to bead making

It all started with making jewellery with bought beads. There were two problems with this. First, living the Isle of Wight meant there was only one bead shop, so choice was a little limited. Secondly, ordering beads online was unpredictable to say the least. However, this all changed on a trip to a bead show in 2005.

I had originally gone to buy beads, but tucked up in the corner of the venue was an exhibitor demonstrating glass bead making. I knew I had to have a go, so I bought a basic kit and a 'how to' book and took it home. I wouldn’t say it was easy, but a fascination for bead making soon developed into a passion. In the following years, I learned more on courses and studied a variety of techniques. I joined GBUK and won first prize [2011] and runners up [2012]. I have demonstrated glass bead making at craft shows and groups . I enjoy being part of The Isle of Wight Open Studios each Summer which is a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate glass bead making to visitors in my garden workshop.

In March 2018 I was fortunate to have a new workshop which is bright, airy and perfect for bead making classes. Please see my website for more details https://www.annahaywardglassbeads.co.uk/workshops-classes/

I love making glass beads, but I also adore hand stitching, pottery, gardening and paper mache. I am now adding my paper mache figures to my Etsy Shop, so please do take a look and see what you think.

Every item in my shop has been entirely made by me with love and care. Beware, they may not be perfect, but they will be unique.

Hi, I’m Anna and I make my own lampwork glass beads in my garden studio workshop at home on the Isle of Wight. My beads can be bought on their own or as unique items of jewellery. I particularly like experimenting with pattern and colour. All my beads are fully annealed in a kiln.
I also create unique paper mache figures.
