About Us

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

New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year
Don't know why I called this entry 'Resolutions' because I don't do resolutions! Maybe it's because I signed up to a Folksy daily listing club #ResolutionRevolutions!!
Two items up, so far so good.
Happy New Year is based on a signature bracelet called 'Happy Birthday'. I've made several of these over the years and managing to make each one unique is becoming quite a challenge!

My offering for day 2 is more to my personal taste, simple, one colour and looks good dressed up or dressed down. 
Seaflower was to be my next listing for Misi but I've decided not to list anything else there.
I guess it'll be hard to come up with something brand new on a daily basis so I'll likely remove items from Misi and relist on Folksy. Either that or I make loads of earrings!!

Copper Flower
I find it exceedingly difficult to make earrings for selling. I end up keeping most of them to myself. The pair pictured were made last night just before we went out to a party...big mistake.....I wore them!! They were much admired so I'm now telling myself I can offset the cost to advertising!


  1. Beautiful jewellery. Stunning beads.

  2. Ohhh I loved these creations!!! Great blog! :)

  3. I love those earrings! I would have worn them too!!!! ~Val

  4. I made another pair of those earrings...slightly shorter...and put them in my Folksy shop!!!
