Hello and thank you for visiting my blog; the first one I have ever written. My name is Jane Weaver. I am Essex girl by birth but now I live in beautiful West Yorkshire on the edge of the Peak District. I have been making jewellery for around 17 years. It started as a hobby, and still is, to a certain extent. I began with simple bead stringing, which I still do sometimes (although I don’t sell strung jewellery in The British Craft House). But I soon progressed to other genres of jewellery making, including beadweaving, which is the process used to make all the jewellery I sell here. It has become something of an obsession. I was taught embroidery as a young child as several of my elderly relatives were keen embroideresses and beadweaving is not dissimilar in that the beads are sewn together to make a pattern. I market my beaded jewellery under the name ‘Beadseedz’. Another time I’ll explain where the name came from and also tell you a little more about beadweaving techniques and processes. If you think you might enjoy beadweaving too then watch this space as I’ll let you into a few beady secrets along the way.
