Annie Wealleans, AKA The Black Dragon Herself.
“I was born in Sussex and after several extraordinary adventures, I moved to Wales in 1974 to establish a business and raise a family.
I produced leathergoods and beaded jewellery, then an unusual commission introduced me to Celtic designs and the rest is history. I designed my first Celtic bead in 1990 and within 12 months I had won a ‘Best New Product’ award for my first range of Celtic beaded jewellery.
I design, cast and hand finish everything myself, in my Beadoir on a quiet green hillside in rural Carmarthenshire.
I now have over 30 solid lead-free pewter bead, button and charm styles, each one engraved with an intricate and original Celtic knot pattern. I sell them on their own for others to use, trade and enjoy but I also thread them into several different ranges of totally timeless jewellery with stunning gemstones and lots of love.
I have something for everyone, to suit all pockets too!
Beware of imitations!”
