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

Stylish Blog Award!!

I was awarded this lovely honour by Maxine Veronica...if you click on the 'Stylish Award' Logo you will be transported to her beautiful blog! I'm not sure I'd describe my blog as stylish but I hope some of my jewellery is. Anyway it is an honour...'Thank You Maxine'
I now have to carry out several tasks!
1. I must thank Maxine and link back to her blog.....Done.
2. Tell you all seven things about myself...hmmmm
  • I married later in life than most and have been very happily married to Mike for 16 years.
  • I'm the oldest of a family of six.
  • Animals have played a big part in my life although down to one lovely dog now.
  • I've been a piscetarian (mainly veggie but eats some fish!!) for over 30 years.
  • I love everything about the natural world and I don't take my beautiful environment for granted.
  • Music and the arts are very important to me and I've been secretary of Stonehaven Folk Club for nearly 25 years.
  • I have red hair (well out of a bottle nowadays) and I'm told I have the temper to go with it!

3. Find and read 15 blogs I'm not already following and give them this award. This has taken hours of research so no housework done today!!

I'm now following all of the above blogs so please visit when you can....it's always great to see what other people are doing...There are loads more lovely blogs out there I could have added!!!

4. Inform each nominee that I'm awarding this....Will do via the big blog thread (Have You Blogged Today?) on the Folksy Forum..


  1. Loving the background of your blog - is that where you live? It's absolutely gorgeous!

    Congrats on being "stylish"!

  2. Yay! Happy stylish blog award! And I agree with Lisa, your background is stunning!

    I would love to have red hair, once dyed it red for red nose day sponsorship, but it did not work, only looked red in certain lights, all the grey went nicely red though!
