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

Painted Silks Bracelet

Painted Silks Bracelet
 Did something I very rarely do last night. Uploaded a photograph in a hurry with no double check of quality. Have to say we were both a bit preoccupied because Hannah was going to the vet for an op today. Still no excuse for not doing the best I can with photos. Could hardly wait to change the photos I'd uploaded to MISI!! I think this is about the last of our 'Painted Silks' range for the moment. Mike has moved on to Persian carpets and after pouring over all of his photographs he has produced quite a lot (for him) of pillow beads. He hasn't buffed and polished these to a perfect finish as yet!! I was hoping to have some loose beads for sale on MISI...watch this space. Not sure we'll get too much done this week as we'll have an invalid labrador to take care of. Those of you who have/have had dogs might remember the joys of dog and big plastic funnel like collar!!!   Anyway these are the new photos I uploaded this morning. Much happier with these.........Pat

  1. That's really pretty. I like the photography as well with the informal arrangement on lace.

  2. they are such pretty beads - so clever

  3. Thank you girls. That's so kind..I sometimes think I spend more time taking a photograph than I spend making the piece!!
