The (rather long) Story of The Bead Garden

I have been a jewellery making since 1989 and I opened The Bead Garden website in April 2004. Between 2004 and 2009 we were regulars at all the big UK Bead Shows, our favourite being our local show, in Harrow.
We specialised in Czech glass beads, Japanese seed beads, including Delicas, sterling silver findings and kits.
I had several designs featured in Bead Magazine and Quick & Crafty magazine. In June 2008 Bead magazine ran a feature about me and my work. I took a break from selling beads in 2009, to care for our young family.
When the kids had all started school I was ready to return to fulltime work. I opened Wish Knots jewellery on Etsy and started selling my handmade jewellery fulltime in 2017. It was always my intention to reopen The Bead Garden once Wish Knots was well established. We reopened The Bead Garden, on Etsy, in 2021. We also moved into a new office and bought lots of lovely new stock to fill the shop.
As before, we specialise in Czech glass & Japanese seed beads, which are in the shop now (I am writing this in August 2021). I regularly add new items to the shop and the Delicas, sterling silver & kits are on their way.
We have no plans to attend any Bead Shows at the moment but one aspect of the shows that I always loved was being able to offer jewellery making tips & advice. If you have any jewellery making or bead related questions, feel free to message me and I will do my best to help you. Jewellery making is a passion and its always nice to talk to other jewellery makers who feel the same way, so drop me a message.
