The Origins of The Beaded Chain...
The Beaded Chain is the final chapter in a journey that started many years ago. It started as a hobby scouring second hand shops collecting jewellery and rescuing pieces of jewellery in need of a little TLC.
Many hours have been spent detangling kilos of tangled jewellery and saving from landfill as many reusable components as possible. Boxes of jewellery started to accumulate and the amount of jewellery I was collecting started to become a storage problem. I don't personally wear a lot of jewellery.
Years later the concept of an online store was born, originally known as Flos Fancies. Flos Fancies was created in hast so that a dear friend could be witness to it before cancer took hold and her fight sadly ended. That friend was the Zing in Zip Dot Zing. A term she coined as representative of our different personalities. Pieces of jewellery that are not either beaded chains or reinvented pieces can be found in the Zip Dot Zing collection.
Now several years later the rescuing, restoring and reinventing of jewellery journey is reborn and the creating of gorgeous often one of a kind designs is now known as The Beaded Chain.
