Valerie Anderson, Jewellery Designer - Bedecked Beads

Bedecked Beads was launched in July 2009 with a brand new online jewellery shop. My name is Valerie Anderson, my passion is designing and creating unique jewellery. All jewellery is made at my home in Scotland, just outside Edinburgh. I love to experiment with different media and tend to vary my designs incorporating handmade polymer clay components and wire work.

I can design unusual contemporary, on trend fashion jewellery designs to classic one of a kind designs and you can be assured of the quality of the materials used to create our jewellery as I hand pick all materials used. Recently launched, are our new line of handmade polymerclay buttons. These are unique handmade buttons which are suitable for your sewing, craft and knitting projects, now available in our shop.I keep up to date with new techniques and materials by attending workshops in the UK

I have recently become the co ordinator for the British Polymer Clay Guild in Scotland and run regular workshops in Edinburgh
