Somerset Beads - A Little Bit About Us

Hello, My name is Karen Burrow and I run Somerset Beads, an online bead shop in the UK. 

I would like to tell you a little bit about us, Somerset Beads.

This is me, I am a self confessed bead addict. I really, really love beads especially Czech Glass Beads and semi precious gemstones. 

I have more than 8 years experience selling beads online in the UK and many, many more years of experience of designing and making my own jewellery. 

Somerset Beads was born after I left a very regimented and unfulfilling job in the civil service with the intention of "doing something crafty". After a few months I made the decision to open an online beadshop and Somerset Beads came to life.

As well as running Somerset Beads, I currently design and make sea glass jewellery which I sell on Etsy. If you would like to see my designs here's a link to my Etsy shop Sea Treasures Boutique

Somerset Beads has been supplying beads for jewellery making to happy customers since 2012. .

Somerset Beads are UK bead suppliers, we only stock beads hand picked by us, if they are not good enough for us they certainly aren't good enough for our customers.

All our items, where relevant, comply with the EEC Nickel regulations.

Our love of beautiful beads is matched only by our commitment to excellent customer service. We have very high standards and absolutely will not sell anything that does not meet those standards. 

We want all our customers to love each and every bead as much as we do. Your satisfaction is paramount to us, however big or small your order, we want you to be 100% happy. If for some reason that doesn't happen, we're not happy and we will always work to ensure your complete satisfaction.

We offer a no quibble money back guarantee on any beads you don't like or simply don't want, all we ask is that they are returned in the same condition as  you received them. 

If you have any questions we are always happy to hear from you, if there is anything you would like us to stock just let us know and we'll do the best we can to get it.

Our aim for Somerset Beads is to provide a place to buy quality beads with a fast, friendly and secure service not to forget extremely competitive prices.
