Purple Moon Beads has been in business since 2005 originally based in Berkshire and run by best friends Ana and Pauline. Geoff then came on board in 2007 with his flair for all things chainmaille adding a new dimension to the designing side.
Combining their shared passion for jewellery the business has continued to grow. Purple Moon Beads attend as many bead fairs in the South as they can which provides the opportunity to chat to bead enthusiasts alongside craft fairs where they sell their range of Knight & Day chainmaille jewellery.
In 2008 Purple Moon Beads moved to the Isle of Wight the artistic environment that exists on the island has benefited the business and after a settling in period plans progressed to expand the retail side and introduce courses in jewellery and chainmaille making.
On 1st May 2010 Purple Moon Beads moved into their first retail premises in Ventnor and are now able to stock a much larger variety of beads and bead related items. Workshops in bead and chainmaille jewellery are up and running as well as demonstration days for special events and birthday parties for both children and adults.
The first few months of 2011 have seen the Purple Moon Beads look updated and the launch of a brand new online retail shop. We are currently working towards expanding our range of kits in both bead and chainmaille making and adding more workshops.
Our priority as always is to ensure you the customer receive excellent service, friendly help and advice and continue to have fun.
