With years of experience in education and a passion for all things creative, Mrs Bead [aka Rachael Brennan] came to life when I decided to combine my love of teaching and learning with my fun jewellery-making hobby – it was a natural progression that was just meant to be!

I have a large range of specialist jewellery-making tools and 1000s of sparkling beads and I am really excited about helping you to create some amazing pieces of jewellery of your own!
