My name is Anne, I am married to John, we have four children and live in Reading, England.
I started collecting beads when I was about three years old and never stopped! I had gone to Sir John Cass School of Art, Whitechapel London to do the full-time Jewellery and Silver-smithing course and picked up the trade.
I taught myself from an early age to restring beads and started to do more elaborate work when I was twelve.
I have worked in the Jewellery trade for at least forty years. I have worked for about thirty-five jewellers in Berkshire, London and beyond.
Here is a principle I put into my work "whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might". Ecclesiastes 9v10.
