Welcome to Magpie Annie. I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful medieval town of Axbridge in Somerset, sharing the house with The Husband and The Dog.
This website shows the different styles of jewellery which I love to make, from chain maille to wire weaving and wire crochet. I’ll be adding more to the site as I learn new techniques so do please come back & visit regularly. New additions in August 2013 include Beaded Kumihimo and bead stitched spiral variations – check out the necklace pages for pictures !
Everything you see on the site is available for sale or I can make something specially for you. I work mainly in coloured aluminium, which is virtually weightless, and also in jewellers brass, copper, bronze and, mainly for the men, stainless steel. Sterling silver is also available upon request. Each metal & bead has its own individual personality, all of which add to the unique nature of each & every piece I make.
I can make any of the patterns you see, along with quite a few more, and am adding to my patterns every week. Colours, beads, metal type and ring sizes are all up to you – let your imagination run riot !
In case you’re wondering …. yes I can & do make earrings as well ! Just let me know which pattern or weave you like, choose a colour(s) and length and away we go !
