The Bead Cove

How it all began.

My name is Melonie Jane, sole owner and founder of “The Bead Cove

My journey began back in 2015, following redundancy. I had been a primary school teaching assistant for 10 years, a job which I loved with a passion.

So, here I was, jobless !

My family & friends encouraged me to follow my passion of wire wrapping & jewellery making & open a shop !

“The Bead Cove” was born.

The bead Cove was my shop full of Beads, jewellery making supplies, tools, findings and a small selection of crystals.

My little piece of paradise, where I welcomed, taught & advised some amazing people. Having a passion to teach & share my knowledge, I ran evening Jewellery making workshops which were a great success!


Everything changed in April 2020, as I came to the end of my 5 year lease & COVID hit.


At this point my whole business changed! I didn’t renew my lease ( thankfully), the shop closed and I had a crazy idea of buying a van & transforming it into a shop.

Thankfully, I have a very clever son, who made this happen for me & that was when

 “The Bead Cove Mobile” was born.

“Wow, how my life changed at that point as I decided to introduce a larger range of crystals”

The Bead Cove is now a traveling supplier of a large range of Crystals, rocks & minerals , along with my stock of beads, jewellery making supplies & of course my own Jewellery designs.

I move around local craft, makers & farmers markets each weekend in rotation, where I have met some wonderful people, customers, fellow crafters & crystal lovers.

“Life is good & I Love crystals! “


So here I am, my next venture!

My Website!

A long time in the making but I’ve done it!
