All About Us
Button and Bead is a true cottage industry nestled in the heart of the Pennines, owned and run by Penny Lucker and Sara Evans.
Button and Bead was originally founded by Penny, a busy mum of 2 and a practicing nurse. After many years of studying nursing Penny decided she wanted to step out and follow her dreams to learn how to make jewellery, completing a 2 year course in 3D jewellery design in 2012.
After spending several years making and designing jewellery for her family and friends and with the demand for her jewellery growing she decided to set up her own company, so in 2011 Button and Bead was born.
By September 2013 the little company had grown and Penny was joined by Sara Evans. Sara has a background in creative design and business management as well as being a skilled crafter. Since then the duo have gone from strength to strength developing and growing their business, with the demand for their bespoke and handcrafted jewellery growing nationally and internationally.
They currently operate from their kitchen tables, which are their (fully kitted out) work stations and office - where they both have views of the rolling Pennines. Penny and Sara live a hop, skip and a jump from each other and during busy times can be seen running between each other's homes in their slippers!
Although a true cottage industry, they like to assure customers that their heart and soul goes into every piece of jewellery they create. They hope you enjoy wearing it as much as they enjoy creating it! If you have any queries or questions please message, phone or e-mail them, they are looking forward to hearing from you.
