Always the best place to start I think!

Whenever I read books, articles, blogs and even trashy magazines, I always find myself wondering just who wrote them? I mean, what do they look like? where did they write? what inspired them? Mostly this is just me being nosey, but I also think it's nice to get a bit more of an insight into the words you read. It helps you to understand, form opinions, maybe even learn something.

So on that note, welcome to Lebeado...


An Aladdin's Cave, old fashioned sweet shop (but with beads!) jewellery store, bead shop... whatever you'd like to call it. This is my home for 5 days a week, and what a lovely home it is.


Most of my time is spent here, not quite as impressive as our Moroccan beading table (which interestingly, used to be a lightshade) but just as comfy. Here I work on our website, press, organise stock and see to any other little jobs that crop up. The brains behind the beads maybe? Ask my manager.

I share the basement with lots of beautiful beads and jewellery, from every corner of the world (and on the odd day, our cheeky labrador Jemimah)

I may not have a window, fancy office, coffee machine or colleagues to chat to, but I do get to dress up in diamonds and pearls anytime I want, surely that's any girls dream job?!

Tell me more about you, where you write and how it helps or hinders you.
