We are very lucky to receive such lovely comments about the service here at Montys Beads.

Here is what our customers have to say…


I just wanted to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH for making my rings! I was thrilled when you told me you can make them (the ‘unusual’ request to set the blue sapphire and a garnet into rings), and the way you have created them, you have exceeded my expectations. I love everything about the design, and the stones now look
accentuated and bigger. I am also very happy with the price.
I would also like to thank the whole team, who have been friendly, professional and very accommodating. It is great to see that you all care about and enjoy what you do. I have already shared the info about your forthcoming workshops, and I will be happy to continue recommending you.
Thank you again and best wishes to you all!
No doubt, I will see you again (Aleksandra Kendel)


Thank you Andrew @montysbeads yet again for your patience but above all sharing your knowledge and expertise. Brilliant Day. Roll on the next one … This has been a long time dream and I’m finally accomplishing it. Andrew @montysbeads is brilliant. I’ve been on a number of courses and everyone is so impressed and says he is the best teacher they’ve had and the bonus is we take something home at the end of the day (Quoted from @countymousechronicles via Instagram)


Brilliant service from Becky at Monty’s! All done via messenger as I’m In US currently and they were so helpful – sending photos of different designs and beads – so that we ended up with a beautiful necklace and matching bracelet that my mother loves. They were happy to post direct to her too. Great value and wonderful quality semi-precious stones all made to order – can’t fail to be impressed. (Hannah Price via Facebook)


Have been to Montys at various fairs around the country and finally made it to the shop. Lovely friendly staff and got a guided tour. It’s a great place to pop in and be inspired (Fiona Shearer via Facebook)


So I’ve been popping into the shop on my lunch break for a while now and everyone is always warm and friendly and really helpful. I’ve done two courses now, wire wrapping and intermediate stringing. I can’t recommend them strongly enough! Both courses were great fun, well structured and easy to follow. I learned lots of new techniques and handy tips which is great. Can’t wait to try the next new technique (Sarah Blyth via Facebook)


Best class I’ve ever done. I learnt so much and Maddy is a great teacher. Highly recommend! (Christy Tolliday via Facebook)


5 stars all the way! Had such a great time learning how to make our rings and ended up with such a beautiful product at the end! Andrew and the team were so lovely and took great care and pride in making sure we ended up with something that looked so professional! Thank you! We will definitely be back (Karen Gascoigne via Facebook)


Doing the Silver Clay taster day is a MUST …. done it yesterday and had such a fabulous day , it was friendly and so informative . Excellent tutors and I cannot recommend it enough , I’m going to book the intermediate day soon , and lovely coffee too !!… Thank you Montys Beads X (Jan Beer via Facebook)


Great day today on the silver clay workshop with Madeline and Becky too. I’ve wanted to do this for ages and I really enjoyed it. I took home a lovely toggle clasp and had enough over for some tiny little leafy drops which I’m sure I will find a good use for. The beads are highly recommended too especially if you want semi precious and quality crystals. Thank you ladies (Sue Truesdale via Facebook)


Spent a lovely morning making 1 necklace and 2 beaded bracelets.
Sooo many beads to choose from. Great workshop. Andrew’s tuition was fabulous.
I took my very pregnant daughter for a treat before baby arrives. We both had a fabulous time. We were welcomed with offers of tea or coffees. This was my first workshop at Monty’s Beads. It certainly will not be mt last. Looking forward to working my way through their workshops. Thanks to everyone. A brilliant way to spend a few hours. (Janice Nunn via Facebook)


Thank you for the fantastic work repairing my Moldavite pendant. It’s perfect and I like the style you created more than what it was originally.
The repair was done quickly and in a few days i had it back. Excellent service I will be recommending you to all my family and friends. Very helpful and friendly shop/staff. 10/10 (Hayley Moll via Facebook)


The silver ring course was absolutely lovely. Great teacher, friendly staff and a wonderful experience. Really fascinating! : ) Thank you! Will definitely come again! (Rebecca Gaite via Facebook)


So far to date I’ve been to Monty’s Beads and undertaken the Silver Clay and the silver findings workshops. Both workshops were taught to a very high standard with extremely knowledgeable staff. It’s truly inspired me to take my jewellery making to another level. With that said, I am in the process of gathering all of my tools to run with these new skills. Today my steel block, puck, fire bricks & hammer have arrived. I’m loving the postman atm
Monty’s I will return for materials, and more knowledge in the future. For now, it’s play time thank you all so very much! (Lisa Russell-Smith via Facebook)


I discovered the shop last year and thought I’d found heaven with the selection in there (semi – precious gemstones are my favourites) then I found even more awesomeness in the form of Mel’s silversmithing workshop, had an amazing day yesterday, I learned so much and have come away feeling very inspired, big thank you (Becky Eastman via Facebook)


Great morning doing the beginners stringing lesson. Spoilt for choice on beads to use and came home with two bracelets and a necklace. Would recommend to anyone (Laura Aspinall via Facebook)


Thank you so so much for a wonderful morning making stacking rings. I am really excited at the thought of what I have accomplished and what will come next! (Natalie Stevens via Facebook)


A well deserving 5 stars.I had such a fantastic time today on the gem set ring course Would highly recommend to everyone really helpful lovely people
Thank you so much (Claire Stuart via Facebook)


Spent the day with 3 friends having silversmith tuition from expert silversmith Melanie at Montys Beads yesterday. We all had an absolutely fabulous day and under her amazing, friendly and supportive guidance, we all came away with some beautiful sterling silver jewellery that we had made. Thank you for a super day! (Frankie Dowling via Facebook)


I have just finished a precious metal clay class and produced a pendant and pair of earrings.
Even without any experience, it was
