Winner of the Summer of Independents 2019 Award!

With a huge vote from the public and overwhelmingly positive feedback from the mystery shopper Monty’s Beads topped the retail category. Equipped with a jewellery making studio, Monty’s Beads host regular workshops to help budding jewellery makers hone their skills – from traditional silversmithing to bead stringing and even stone setting. The workshops are a hit with customers as they can choose their jewels and stones and make a beautiful one-off piece of jewellery.

“The sheer number of votes from the public made Monty’s Beads stand out: the owners’ knowledge, passion and commitment to customer service also shone through.”
