Welcome to Pandabee

Welcome to Pandabee, we sell lovingly hand painted jewellery & key chains - perfect for gifts or just a special treat for yourself. All items are shipped first class to be with you as soon as possible.

I take glass beads, and sketch designs directly onto the glass with a special fine line pen, with a 0.05mm tip. I then add colour and sparkle to the designs with nail polish, and sometimes loose glitter too. Each layer of colour is left for at least 8 hours to dry, so it can take several days to complete a complex design. The painted glass beads are then fixed into the jewellery and keychain settings, and sometimes a charm or Swarovski crystal or two is added to make the item extra special.

The tricky thing I've found is that you have to paint the design backwards, so you start with the top coat. I sometimes plan out the designs beforehand, layer by layer so that I don't miss a key aspect of the design - you can't just add pupils onto a penguin's eye, you have to do the black dot first and then the white eyeball on top, for example!

I have an impressive stash of nail polish and glitter to choose from when painting designs, and I'm really organised about it too - each one is swatched, numbered and entered into a spreadsheet, with the corresponding bottle numbered too.
