Hello, my name is Jan and I own Glitterwitch. Ever since I was little (I am not so tall now, but older and maybe wiser), I have loved playing with beads.  I used to collect them and spend hours sorting them by colour or size, and then storing them in pretty boxes and tins. When friends came round we would swap beads, but I was always sad to say goodbye to my favourites and would swap them back as soon as I could!

These days I still love playing with beads, only now I import them from across Europe so that you can play with them too.  My website has grown to include all sorts of interesting craft supplies and I hope you will enjoy browsing through and maybe find inspiration for your next crafting project.

In September 2015, Kent Life Magazine published an article about me under the heading Silver Entrepeneurs – well that gives you an idea of my age now!

In November 2015 I was lucky enough to be interviewed by the FT (yes that FT!) for another article about Silver Entrepreneurs.

2017 started well when I was crowned “Queen of Inspiring Creativity” on twitter in February. So, who knows when else this year will bring, but you can be sure there will be lots of new and interesting products to inspire you!
