What's in a name?


Beads From The Art


Well, there are a couple of reasons...

I make Art Beads...which are like tiny works on art on a bead.

I get much of my inspiration from great artists like Matisse, Klimt and Van Gogh.

The other reason is slightly humorous.  

My maiden name is Hartley and originally I was going to call my business Beads From The Heart, but there were lots of businesses with that name, then I thought Beads From The Hart...but it just doesn't look right!  

Where I live in Rochdale, I grew up being called Andrea 'Artley.
 A lot of my school mates dropped their "H's"!!!.  

So then I came up with putting the Art Beads and the 'Artley together and use a heart as an apostrophe that's why it's
