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
Finally made a start on some sparklers for the party season. 'First Frost' was the first of these and it sold very quickly. Pat will have to get busy now and get some more up for sale in our Misi shop. Finding time is always difficult at this time of year. Commissions need to be thought about, ideas put to clients and then hopefully designing and making something they'll like!! Wish some wouldn't leave it until the last minute....No pressure!
PS. Mike has been photographing loads of Persian Carpets.......
