Closing down sale is now on, so if you want to pick up some bargains before it shuts down completely, better get down there fast.

What a beautiful shop! You can't help walking in and touching all the beads and charms that they sell....but head downstairs if your a lover of jewellery making. Its brilliant! you can buy all the stones and accessories to make you own glam necklace, the staff even helped me amend a anklet by extending it for me and adding an extra clasp. Very helpful and good prices too.


I have spent many many many hours in this shop, it is a real aladdin's cave of sparkly treasures. Avoid at week ends and avoid like the plague during half terms and school holidays if possible as it is crammed. They also stock findings and tools to to help you make the jewellery that your heard desires. If you are new to the process or just a bit overwhelmed by it all they sell kits that have everything you need in. If you are bulk buying it is always cheaper to do it online. That said there is something lovely and satisfying about the tactile experience of hand picking your beads and matching them together to create something unique and personal.
