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,
(Jewellery Designer and full time beadaholic)
These are a few of my favorite things....
