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

Bits & Bobs & Hannah!!

15th November:

We had decided that we weren't going to breed from Hannah therefore an operation to have her speyed would be best. We didn't make this decision lightly. We've had much loved bitches in our family before and, without exception they've suffered from various disorders when older.
Anyway she's been 'done' as they say. First question I have is...Where's the awful plastic collar that needs to be worn until stitches are removed?? Not necessary says vet. Just give her a sharp verbal rebuke if she starts licking!!
Changed days....it's lovely to have her home, the house was so quiet without her.......

6th November:
This is Hannah the animal who had us worried sick last night....and not because it was her first 'Fireworks Night'. Hannah like most of her breed will eat anything and always has her nose stuck somewhere it shouldn't be. Whatever she was poking about in yesterday caused an acute allergic reaction...her face went up like a balloon in around 60 seconds!!! Madam is fine after having an anti inflamatory steroid injection....Her first year has been most  interesting. ( This photo was taken after her second attempt to catch a fish in our pond.)

Mike and I live in a lovely part of the world. We love the sea and the countryside and thankfully we have the time to enjoy both. A lot of what we see every day influences our work and we're both keen photographers.
