Beadstorm Designs is run by local creatives Roxane and Sarah – two great friends who came together in 2010 to launch their jewellery business. Their work is a collaboration of ideas and styles inspired by their shared interests in wildlife and the great outdoors. Together they create fine silver jewellery featuring owls, foxes, hares and other British Wildlife. They also incorporate freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones and sterling silver into their pieces.
