The story so far...
I am Melissa and I started Albion Design in 2019. After searching high and low for a gemstone beaded necklace to spice up some of my white shirts I decided to design and make one instead, and so it began. I had graduated from The Surrey Institute of Art and Design in 1999 and had a yearning to return to my creative roots, one necklace later and I was hooked.
I now source beads from all over the world, and from the UK as much as possible. I sketch my designs out first of all and then pair the beads up together, ensuring the tones of colour and the weight of the beads work well together.
I am making new designs all the time so please sign up to my newsletter for updates now and again and join my journey.
