Laura started making jewellery when she was little, though it was mostly stringing beads and braided friendship bracelets, and people always bought her craft kits for birthday and Christmas presents.
She liked sewing and knitting so often included beads as embellishment for things she'd made. Then, when she started at Beads Direct, she began making lots more jewellery and learnt new techniques.
Laura's role at Beads Direct is Purchasing Assistant. On a daily basis, she sets up all the new lines and then writes their descriptions for the website. She creates the purchase orders for all the products so that we can book them in and sell them. She also organises the Purchasing Manager and keeps her happy with lots of cups of tea!!
