Working from my small studio at home in the village of Grimsargh, on the edge of the Ribble Valley, I have been creating hand crafted jewellery since 2008. Since then I have had many pieces of work published in various on - line Jewellery Magazines.
I use only the most beautiful components, often with unique artisan beads and metalwork.. I am crazy about colour, and spend hours planning pieces that will emphasise the beauty of the beads I buy, so I hope you like them too.
Locally, however, I was fed up with expensive, cold and ill-planned craft fairs - with cheap imported junk masquerading as hand crafted,
So I set up my own creative group with 6 like minded friends. The Design Platform. It works, and we love it.
My business is named for my elder grandaughter, who is a frequent inspiration and has also inherited the 'beading bug'.
The addition of 'Precious' just felt right. I have a passion for sourcing the best and most exquisite artisan components for my creations.
I particularly love one-off creations in lampwork glass, ceramics or polymer clay and you can read about some of my favourite suppliers on the Links & Credits page.
