Manda has been a bead maker since 2005. She began her career after an ‘Introduction to bead making” with Diana East earlier that year.

In 2007, she became one of the first in the UK to line glass beads with Sterling Silver. Mangobeads silver cored beads then known as ‘Buddies’, very soon became collectable in their own right.

Manda now has a unique collection of work and is well known for her eclectic use of colour. Her ‘Folklore Collection’ originally inspired by colours and designs found on the historic canals and waterways of Great Britain are her favourites and represent everything she aspired to when she first began making glass beads. Much of her work now is cabochon based and her Harlequin and Sundial designs sold as pendants and ring toppers have become very collectable.

In 2012 she demonstrated at Flame Off here in the UK, and since then has travelled at home and internationally as both instructor and presenter.

In 2014 she was invited to present her work at the ISGB Conference in Houston Texas.
The  classes and workshops she gives have awakened a passion for teaching  she never knew she had . The opportunity to share her skills with others perhaps just beginning their journey in lamp work is a constant reminder of how lucky she is to have discovered bead making and the joy it brings with it.
