Joanna Swan has a bead addiction!  She has been making unique, necklaces and earrings for 25 years as a passionate side job to her career as a singer and songwriter.  Her beautiful, colourful, one off pieces have gained a lot of local fans and as Joanna is very busy with singing engagements this year The Orangery will be her one and only outlet this year.

 I use all sorts of beads - I am not a snob, I like to mix all mediums, ranging from hand made kiln wound glass, to gemstones, pearls, plastic, wood and old vintage bits and bobs I have been storing in my nest. I get such a thrill seeing people out and about in my jewellery that I have to stop myself from running up to them and saying - "Hey I made that!  ... give it back"!  ... (the last bits a joke!)
