Very good quality and smooth like silk! I just loved the combination of colours. For those that are looking for something different!

About

...'live people ignore the strange and unusual'

"I, myself, am strange and unusual."

Bored with the blah in the local shopping emporium? Yup, been there. Nothing worse than buying a (so you thought) 'unique' necklace, only to discover it elsewhere in a gazillion other colours. Bah!
So, in order to satisfy my thirst for jewellery that fit *my* style, I started making my own. And that's where 'Kitsch 'n' Kaboodle Beads' came in.

This shop was first set up back in 2010. It started out with me trying to get rid of the excess beads I had from my jewellery making, in a vain attempt to stop me being taken over by them.

It didn't work.

As sales picked up, more stock came in which meant I had more beads than I started with. It then became clear that the shop needed a focus. Realising that most of the beads on offer elsewhere weren't very exciting, I decided to start selling beads that were unusual and less run-of-the-mill.

My jewellery making days were still going, although I was vastly running out of space and couldn't possibly wear all the stuff I'd made (unless I wanted to look like I'd fallen in the jewellery box). So, the lightbulb moment of 'hey, why don't I sell some of my jewellery in the shop' suddenly dinged over my head.

And in a Twilight Zone-esque twist, 'Kitsch 'n' Kaboodle beads' morphed into 'Kitsch 'n' Kaboodle beads & jewellery'.

Wow, betcha didn't see *that* coming.

    Neo-rockabilly-80s throwback-cyber punk with gothic tendencies. I like to poke things with sticks. Failing that, make pretty things that sparkle and are a li'l bit on the 'huh?' side.
