About TaraMay Designs

TaraMay Designs

I use Japanese glass seed beads to create colourful, tactile beadwork jewellery.


I am lucky enough to live and work in Pembrokeshire, South West Wales, UK. I have loved colours, patterns and tiny things for as long as I can remember. When I discovered bead weaving, it just clicked for me, as it combined all those things. Bead weaving basically means hand-sewing one bead to another, and another, until a 2- or 3D shape is formed.

Two aspects of my jewellery that cannot be conveyed by a photograph: the way they flash and glow in different lights, and the way beadwork feels when worn. It is very tactile; smooth and slinky.

Thank you for looking at my items. If you have any queries or requests, please feel free to get in touch. I very much enjoy making custom orders; it's so gratifying when I've got it just right and the customer is delighted!
