Beadazzled by Elise came into being nearly 6 years ago.

I was making flower beads for my own use when my husband Mark suggested that other jewellery designers might like to buy beads like mine. Mark set me up an ebay shop where I successfully expanded my products and customer base.

Beadazzled by Elise moved to it’s own website in 2009 when the new fee structure made it impossible to sell beads in the format I had been.

I now make over 100 different polymer clay beads.

You can now join conversations with other Beadazzled by Elise customers by joining the Artisan Beads by Elise Canning fan page on facebook. Here you will see first hand the beads that have been made and what others are making with them.

I am a work at home mum, with 2 children Montanna & Riley. I have been married to my husband Mark for over 20 years. We support the Baby Loss Awareness charity after the loss of our middle child to Potters syndrome.

I make all beads in my studio area overlooking our garden in Derbyshire.

I have been featured in Bead magazine and Beads and Beyond magazine.
