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

Friendship Bracelet

Had hoped to have this set up on Misi earlier today. The dog was sick so plans interrupted!! Vet not sure what the problem is but poor Hannah looks like a walrus with her swollen face! Anyway it was pretty late before this piece was finished! The bracelet features some of Mike's 'Midnight on the Water' nautilus beads. Pat decided they'd look good on this gorgeous matching pure silk cord. Simply threaded with sterling silver beads to buffer each nautilus. The cord ends have been knotted, dipped in a fixing glue with silver powder and finished with matching glass silver lined beads. The knot is adjustable once the bracelet is on and should fit most wrists. The shells sit nicely on top of the wrist. I'd keep this one out of water to maintain the firmness of the silk cord. There's a pair of matching earrings wired with sterling silver with a dangle of blue opal Swarovski rounds. A very pretty set
