Owner and manager of the UK based online bead shop
Owner and manager of Big Bead Little Bead, a UK Bead Shop, based solely on line. 

The company grew out of my desire to create a business that would provide me with a challenge, build on my skills in costume and theatre design, whilst also allowing me time to focus on my then two-year-old son Ellis . . . so Big Bead Little Bead was born. Ellis is now a lively five year old and both he and the company are flourishing!

Being based solely online, and given the size and tactile nature of beads this might seem a disadvantage, but conscious of this from the outset we have worked hard to make our site a well-presented, easy to use, and a visually welcoming shop window. I was keen to focus on providing the same friendly informative service that you would expect from a walk in bead shop, and so to this end before we took the first step forward we agreed everything from the clean and clear site design, to the presentation of our guides, information and glossaries, even going as far as choosing the ribbon and paper we wanted to use to package your purchases!

Admittedly, only we get the pleasure of actually handling the beads ahead of your order, but our primary aim is to convey as simply and accurately as possible the beads and components that you will receive. Having had a successful career working in the photographic world I have used this visually rich experience to ensure that our imagery, descriptions, and keywords fully complement the beads and components that we are showcasing for you our customers. Keen to offer vintage beads and findings from the start we were conscious that we needed to ensure that you could see the actual condition of the items prior to your purchase and that this image was backed up by an honest appraisal of each piece via our product descriptions. The aim being to ensure that what you see through our shop window is exactly what you receive when you eagerly unwrap your parcel. We know we will have succeeded if you still experience that heart pleasing ooh factor!

We source our beads from around the world, and are always in search of new and exciting additions to our wares, particularly if that search helps to fuel our own love for both vintage beads and unique handmade beads straight from the workshops of independent bead makers. As we continue to expand our stock we are more than happy to source items on your behalf, or indeed to discuss how you might become one of our talented beadmakers if you design and make your own beads.

Best Wishes,

With plans to extend our selection of Jewellery Chains we thought we had better understand the subject a little better and in doing so we've managed to put together what we hope is a useful blog resource for one and all!

If you get the weather it is definitely the best view in London . . . well worth the money as you can stay as long as you like once you are up there. Plenty of helpful and knowledgeable staff around and a good shop for the end of your visit. Would recommend timing your visit to capture daytime and dusk into night time for the full experience.
