The Beady Gecko is a small, family run business that was started in Liverpool in Summer 2011 by Maria Murray, in a dull moment.

The success of The Beady Gecko has been a wonderful thing to behold - taking our inspiration from the world around us - nature, day to day happenings and events, we translate that into unusual and affordable pieces of handmade jewellery using glass or crystal beads, semi precious stones, tibetan silver charms and findings in a variety of metal finishes.

Our ethos is that that our treasures should be as affordable as they are unique. We use glass or crystal beads as these give a depth, clarity of colour and weight to the the finished piece that is difficult to match with acrylics; semi-precious stones are a joy to work with and believed to bring benefits to the wearer. We carefully choose tibetan silver charms that are lead and nickel safe, and we use a variety of plated metal findings, as this helps us keep our jewellery affordable.

You can purchase Beady Gecko Treasures here through our online store on Etsy, and we are delighted to have a selection of our sparkles available at Arts Hub 47 on Lark Lane, Liverpool, and at the National Wildflower Centre, Court Hey Park, Liverpool L16 3NA.
