Rockin' Beads is manned by four staff - Donna, Garry, Julie and Beth.
Donna just wants to melt glass!! She discovered the joy of making her own jewellery 2004, after her best friend, Karen, sent her a necklace she had made. This spurred Donna into having a go. If it hadn't been for Karen there would be no bead shop in Okehamton.
Garry just wants peace and quiet!! Not so easy in a busy little stannary town in Devon where more and more people are discovering the rewards of making their own jewellery. From a background in retail management, Garry was best placed to design our lovely bright spacious shop and online store.
Julie found us. She joined Donna's favourite forum (www.frit-happens.co.uk) literally days before Donna told her Frit Happens friends about their plans to open a bead shop in Tavistock, Devon. She got in touch, we all met for coffee and the job was hers. Julie has many strengths, fortunately for us, and is without doubt the 'Kit Queen' as she designs and builds all of the lovely kits that we sell - no mass produced kits for us.
Beth joined us fairly recently and is an absolute boon with her talent for seed bead patterns. She is responsible for our Beaded Baubles Workshop which are very popular with customers.
