I have had a bit of a thing for charm bracelets for a while now - not your typical charm bracelets but ones that are full of things - the more the merrier! I love the chunky feel and the rattle and clink as you move - makes you feel like you are really wearing jewellery!

I have played with lots of different materials on my charms - from simple glass beads, to shells, stones, and the more traditional shape charms. I love making them for kids as well - these bracelets are strong and tough enough to stand up to all sorts of abuse - even my girls!

Launch of mandysue designs!

Welcome to the opening of my blog and the launch of mandysue designs onto the internet. After a few years of making jewelery only to give it away of stuff it into the back of a cupboard I have decided to see if I can make any money out of it - hence mandysue designs.

I have experimented and played around with a lot of different mediums from glass beads to gemstones, modern to vintage, kids stuff to adult and slowly I think I am starting to develop my own style. But I will put up images here of all my stuff and would truly welcome your feedback - be gentle!!

I also have shop on etsy www. which is an US based site selling everything hand made, and a shop on - an Aussie version .

So please look, buy if you want to!!!! and let me know what you think!
