Essex jeweller, Ann, is the maker behind Annie’s Beads. You can purchase some of Ann’s jewellery in our online shop on this website. https://www.wearehandmade.co.uk/product-category/jewellery/
Ann loves getting her stash of beads out and creating something which is unique and the only one of its kind. She enjoys choosing what colours, bead shapes and fixings to use and once they are laid out on a bead board the design can change many times!
“At first I would string my beads on beading wire or beading elastic but more recently I have started making beadwork bracelets and earrings which involve sewing different size and style beads together following a pattern to create a different appearance when completed, these are much more time consuming but are so worth the extra effort, the only problem is I have had to have much stronger lenses in my glasses, the beads can be very small!”
