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
It's mid November and the weather has not been good this week. For this corner of North East Scotland that also means poor light with the increasingly shorter days. One of the big problems from now on will be photographing beads and jewellery. Pat spent hours today trying to photograph two pairs of earrings....the air was blue! She hates flash going off on crystal AB Swarovskis....didn't do too well with the ice blue Murano either!

On the plus side we have another set of polymer clay beads for sale on Misi. This set, 'Persian Carpet' was inspired by a series of photos Mike took at a friend's shop. John Briggs .http://johnawbriggs.blogspot.com/ imports the most gorgeous carpets and has shops in Stonehaven and Perth
