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

Decided that I needed to cheer myself up so have been trawling through hundreds of my jewellery photographs to find some favourites and maybe boost my inspiration a bit!! Although I've only been selling for a few years I've made jewellery for as long as I can remember. Since '04 I reckon I've photographed most pieces...a lot of pictures!! I should make back up copies but never seem to get around to it. Should have learned my lesson when we lost the contents of a hard drive a few years ago! Any way my favourites, at least today, seem to be my pearly bracelets and the beautiful ones made with artisan lampwork. I've put up a few of the pearly pics and I'll keep the lampwork bracelets for another day..when I've looked up and remembered the names of all the talented glass artists!! (There are some on the 'Gallery Page')
