Beads N’ Birds #Giveaway

I love handcrafted products! The attention to detail, the unique designs and the love that has been put into each product shines through making each item so special.
I was recently introduced to a  company called, Beads N’ Birds that produces unique handcrafted sun catchers, jewellery (and so much more!) all centered around their love of birds. The company is run by Kay and Pam – who design and create the wire birds, sun catchers and jewellery themselves. They use a variety of mediums which include: wire, beads, glass beads and stones. My favourite designs include the red and turquoise beads! The colours are vibrant and just pop right out at you.
Here are a few examples of their work:



I completely fell in love with their story of how their company was founded. Beads N’ Birds was founded when Pam’s budgie (Uncles Les) flew to Kay while she was leaving the house. The door had opened and he flew out and off – he never returned! Which is heart breaking for anyone who is a pet owner. She has a new budgie now and they are building their own bond. Budgies are intelligent birds and were the only type of pets my parents allowed us to have as children. Their home was in our living room and it was always fun to listen to their singing.
You can truly see how much love they have for birds and their work is proof of their passion in their products. You can find more examples of their work on Facebook or follow them on Twitter. To purchase an item visit them on their page.

Beads N’ Birds are giving away one of their Sun Catchers! You can enter via the Rafflecopter form below.
