Shoogly Beads is a husband and wife design team based beside the sea in Stonehaven on the lovely Northeast coast of Scotland. Mike is responsible for the gorgeous polymer clay beads and Pat is responsible for the jewellery design. The 'Shoogly' part of our name comes from a good Scots word meaning shaky, wobbly, swinging......just what beads and charms should do when you hang them off things.......a charm bracelet should be very shoogly as should dangly earrings!
We also make and sell exclusive beads, pendants, charms, buttons and other bits and pieces in polymer clay. These can be used for your own creations!
Pat has also re-discovered her love of painting and other crafts and some of these have been added to our shops.
Currently we are selling our contemporary jewellery, polymer clay, art work and knitting via Folksy and Etsy
We really enjoy working as a team designing pieces together and it's great seeing these items sell. So far we seem to do better at selling finished jewellry pieces rather than selling some of the unique beads we make. Today we sold two sets of our beads to (we think) a fellow Misi designer. This is a tremendous boost for us and assures us that we were right to pick a site like Misi where there are so many talented people. Hopefully we'll see our beads again for sale on Misi but in somebody else's designs!!
