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

Handwired Bracelets.

I used to make a lot of complex handwired bracelets. As soon as I had a photo in my catalogue they'd be gone! I make fewer now for the simple reason that not so many people can afford them....... I do still handwire bracelets but they tend to be less complex, taking less time to make and with fewer expensive handmade components. Here is a gallery of some of my handwired work..... Excuse some of the pictures as they will have been taken about 6 years ago!
