Beads and Bobs is an amazing shop on Etsy. Jill has had this shop on Etsy since June. She also has an amazing graphics shop which I posted about below!! Both are wonderful shops. Jill lives in Scotland!
I've been interested in creating for as long as I can remember. My mum used to run an after school craft club which I would go to, then once I was too old I started to help run it instead. The love of making things has stayed with me and when I recently found myself out of work I decided to start up my shop and make what I enjoy doing part of my living.
I used to live in the city but a few years ago I moved to the Highlands of Scotland and now I am surrounded by mountains and forests. I think this has helped reinforce my love for natural materials such as the wood beads I use in some of my necklaces - these are probably my favourite items right now in my shop as I love the feel and colour they can offer.
For now my beads occupy me (so many on offer and so many ideas to get through!) if I do get to the point where I get a chance to diversify I would love to make my own paper and see what products I could produce using that.
