Handmade on Arran

Welcome to my world…

Who am I?

My name is Christine Lyle and I live on the beautiful Isle of Arran on the west coast of Scotland.

My working life started in the theatre where I trained to become a wardrobe mistress. I learned how to make costumes, how to dress people up. If you could imagine it, I learned to make it. Although in the course of time I have gone on to do many things, my creativity has always stayed with me. The result is now visible in the beadwork I love to make. I create a very wide range of items from jewellery in all its forms to decorated baubles and more. I believe we all need a little sparkle in our lives at some time and this often shows in the items I produce. I try to make each component unique by using different colours of beads and crystals so that each piece of beadwork is individual. Whether you prefer a completed article, or place an order for your own special item, you can be assured that my beadwork is well made, distinctive, colourful and probably sparkling.
