Our Beading Community's Creations
The Majestic Tree
" My biggest inspiration for beading is my love for crystals 💖 I love everything about them and their magical energies. To be able to work with crystals daily and combine them with making jewellery feels absolutely amazing. I really enjoy beading as I find it very therapeutic and there are so many different options of what you can make with them, the only limit is your imagination ❤️"

" I find a lot of different inspirations, but often within nature and seasons. I love to work with lots of different colours, but the time of year will often have an effect on the types of pieces I’ll make - in the summer I’ll focus on brighter colours and use different materials (like seashells for example), and autumn/winter will see more subtle uses of colour, more like light pastels, blues and whites, etc. I’m surrounded by nature where I’m based in Dorset, so it plays a large part within my design process. "
"My mother inspired me to make jewellery she was a lapidarist she collected and tumbled stones to make necklaces and rings back in the 70's. I live within 2 minutes of the beach and this inspired me in my creative process, the colours of the sea from spring through to winter.I enjoy using natural stones and beads in my jewellery, as it evokes emotions in my customers."
Oh Peach Please
What inspires you to bead? "I love to make anything! But beads are my go to craft for as long as I can remember. Colours inspire me mostly. I love making them clash or compliment each other. " What is it about beading that you enjoy? "I love the calm of beading. I can just tune into it and make something! Having all raw materials and then making into something ♥"

"I like designing different ranges of products for the different seasons, whether it be my Liberty of London fabric bracelets and keyrings, matching the different Liberty fabrics to the different charms or creating seed bead bracelets using bright summer colours or more muted winter winter tones"

We love how much creative freedom we get with beading and the endless possibilities that come with it; from designs to patterns to tiny details like writing and shapes. The unique pieces we can create and make ours are what really make it fun. The kandi community is very diverse and we look up to so many YouTube creators like Ginger Cand-e and Vicky Muffins who share their skills so everyone can start somewhere; they inspire us greatly.
"I was in a bad place when I moved to the UK. I had to quit my job and I had nothing to do and that was a very depressing time. And then I was fascinated by the Nature of England and all the colors. It is like magic every season here. That was the time I decided to do something colorful and started to search for what can I do. Then I reminded beads of nothing but colourful beads. Then I decided to make jewelry with them. At first, it was just a hobby and then I decided to create my small business. Since then I am doing it. Making beaded jewelry comforts me. It is like a meditation to me. Everything started with the colours of England's Nature. This is what inspires me 😇"
