My name is Jackie and I am obsessed with gemstones, seed bead artistry, French beaded flowers and making jewellery! My favourite method is seed bead embroidery. I use mainly seed beads but also a variety of beads, crystals, semi-precious stones, polymer clay, ceramic, Swarovski crystals and charms, but my true love is semi precious gemstones – I just love them! Every time I discover a gemstone I haven’t heard of, I have to research it! Each creation on this site has been designed and hand crafted exclusively by me.
For my day job, I work for a charity called Alabare in Salisbury, Wiltshire but my dream is to make a living from what I love best – making jewellery!
I am very lucky to live and work in the beautiful city of Salisbury but dream of living on the Isles of Scilly. I have a son Joe who is serving in the British Army and of whom I am immensely proud. Soldiers and veterans charities are very close to my heart.
I am also a Trekkie!!!!!!! (feel free to mock!). I just love Star Trek and I have every episode ever made on DVD lol. Also every episode of Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe and X Files.
