Made by me! was created in 2007, I moved from the UK where I worked in a bank and was missing family. I got pregnant and found beading. It was easy to get hooked and inspired with all the colours, vibes and new things we were exploring in New Zealand . My business was home based back bedroom created. The earthquake hit in 2010 and I wanted to be bigger and bolder. I gained my studio in November 2010. I had no insurance and a table of beads. I created my workshops, gift wear, birthday parties and all things beaded.
I have grown so much with three wonderful staff members and we are always open 24/7 through on our website and visit us in person at the shop Monday to Friday 10am-4.30pm Saturday 9.30am to 12.30pm. 817 jones Road.
