Mel Wood started Beads & Bracelets ten years ago when she began experimenting with glass bead bracelets for herself. The business has grown and gone from strength to strength, now consisting of a unique handmade collection and a selection of contemporary jewellery from the UK's leading suppliers.
Mel sells her jewellery direct from home and at a number of outlets including: the Craft Coop - Maidenhead, Artisans Handmade UK, Reading and at local businesses, schools, fetes, fayres and pamper nights.
"What I love most about Beads & Bracelets is being able to attend events and actually meet my customers, it's really rewarding to help someone find the perfect unique piece of jewellery for themselves or as a gift. I still get a buzz out of knowing I have made something that people want to buy!"
