About Michelle Childerley & Memory Beads

How I Work

I take meaningful items and fuse them into glass. Each item will react differently to the glass depending on its individual make up. White and black flecks, soot and bubbles can be visible. Every piece is bespoke, and I take the highest level of care and respect whilst creating your memory beads. You do not see the fur or horsehair in the glass, but the reaction it creates when added, due to my beads being glass and not resin.

My Promise

If you would like to share any part of your story, I would love to hear whose honour this piece is being made for. Each bead is made individually in a clean environment, where the contents will not be mixed with others. I would be delighted to create a memory in glass for you, and if you have any questions please contact me.


The bead sizes are approximately:
  • Small - 8mm diameter
  • Medium - 10mm diameter
  • Large - 12mm diameter
The European style bead has a 5mm hole which will fit charm bracelets perfectly.
The regular beads have a 2.2mm hole. As a necklace or bracelet, this can be a silver plated chain or black cord. They all have 925 silver eyelets through them so the glass is not damaged.
I do not offer a warranty on accessories as they are free of charge.
Please do not wear the beads in water, as over time the rivets may come loose.
