Karen Jones NEAC
I’m Karen Jones, designer, maker, owner of Tartanruby Jewellery, welcome to my website


I am a beadweaver and bead embroiderer, born in Kilmarnock on the West Coast of Scotland and now living and working from my home studio in North Shields on the stunning North East Coast.

My jewellery is wearable Art made using only the best quality Japanese seed beads , combined with hand dyed silk, Swarovski crystals, vintage and semi precious stones.These are intricately interwoven into dramatic pieces incorporating organic themes and using vibrant but earthy colours.

My inspiration comes from many places: sometimes the beautiful coastline I live on, sometimes the colours and shapes of the beads before me.





For any enquiries or information please Contact Me –

I’ll be delighted to hear from you.
