It all started with a few beads.

Heather Donald-Reagh visited a bead shop with a friend on a whim a few years ago, and they each made a pair of earrings and a bracelet. She bought more beads and supplies, took them home…and left them in the closet for over a year. One day she dug them out and made a few bracelets—25 of them, to be exact. “I knew I had made more than I could ever wear, and then friends bought some, and friends of friends, and before I knew it, I was making jewellery and selling it at craft shows, at a kiosk at the Dickson Centre lobby, and people were loving it!” She quit her fulltime job to devote herself to making jewellery fulltime.

Heather works with seed beads, Swarovski crystals, leather, glass beads and anything else that catches her fancy. She offers a wide range of jewellery styles and items, and an equally wide range of price points. “My idea is to have something for everyone,” she says. She is very excited to be attending her first Saltscapes Expo, and we’re equally excited to have her join us.

“I didn’t start this business, it started me!” Heather laughs.
