Hello World...

Hello fellow bloggers and general web surfers,

My name is Rachel and I'm from "sunny" Dundee in Scotland. I have always been a creative person, and love to make beautiful handmade jewellery. I first studied Jewellery Design when I was in high school and have been absolutely fascinated ever since. I just love plucking a design from my imagination and making it real. Its become somewhat of an addiction. And I seem to get my inspiration from the most unusual places!

At the moment I use glass beads, swarovski crystals, natural gemstones and silver plate findings. However I do intend to introduce Sterling Silver in to my work in the near future, so watch this space.

I have also set up my own lampwork home studio, after finding it hard to find the exact beads that I wanted to use for my designs, where I am currently learning to make lampwork glass beads, so I am hoping to begin using my own unique beads in my work, which is very exciting!

My jewellery making started out as a hobby, and has quickly taken over everything! I have recently began selling my creations so you can purchase my Jewellery at

Anyhow this is my first attempt at blogging so you will have to bare with me as I am a newbie. I just thought it would be a good idea to start keeping track of my journey especially if it helps other people who want to start out.

Thanks for listening to my Ramblings,

Rachel B
(Jewellery Designer and full time beadaholic)

  1. Hi Rachel and fellow newbie blogger! It's nice to find somebody north of the border - I'm in Ayrshire! Anyway just to say your necklaces you made for Mother's Day are very pretty, so I'm off to have a look at your Folksy site, thanks for sharing your handiwork. Have a look at my goodies if you like, I look forward to following your work. Jo x
