Ley Vintage Beadery


My name is Ley Holloway, retired from full time work and now hoping to concentrate more on being a jewellery maker and designer.

I use sea glass and other beach finds with vintage and modern beads to create jewellery inspired by the sea and the local area. I also use other vintage materials including lace and old jewellery.

More recently I began experimenting with fusing silver to copper and occasionally brass. Also fusing silver wire to create fasteners and pendants.

All my pieces are unique since the materials are never the same when I use beach finds and the fusing process has something of a mind of it's own.

I'm happy to accept commissions using my own pieces of glass or semi precious stones or something provided by the client.
