What a great shop ... I've bought from Beadz from Arts Centre days so really happy to see it's reopened in the fabulously historic New Regent st. ( seem she has one in Cranford St too) and now with the tram running from the museum to NRS more people will fall in love with the jewellery and Beadz ... next time I may even make something!

In July I was really fortunate to visit these two gorgeous shops in New Regent Street Christchurch. Quality, style, fun and creative are just a few adjectives that spring to mind. It was imperative I find something personal, relevant and affordable to honour someone special... me!
Rowena, the business owner introduced me to her specialty range of gold and/or silver range of the Christchurch Cathedral 'Rose' Window. To my delight I left with a divine 'rose' ring that I adore. New Regent Street is well worth your attention in a city not quite but almost bereft of shopping these days. Rowena Watson Designs were displaying an exquisite range of vintage cameo and marcasite with silver that was very difficult to resist. A little ray of sunshine in otherwise moon scape surroundings. I can't wait to return next time I'm in Christchurch.

I popped into New Regent Street early-ish on Saturday morning in order to kill a couple of birds with one stone; I wanted to checkout New Regent Street since it re-opened after the quake & also wanted to repair a couple of necklaces at Beadz Unlimited that had lain broken for far too long.

I was welcomed into the store by a lovely shop assistant, and the owner of the store soon joined us in the adjoining jewellery store. The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly, I felt immediately at ease, not at all feeling silly for the idiot like questions I was asking in regards to fixing my necklaces. Before long I found myself seated at a table in the store with a take out coffee by my side (which the owner had very kindly let me bring into the store), busy re threading my necklaces.

The light, bright, welcoming interior with all the gorgeous beads and wonderfully friendly staff made me want to stay for hours creating all sorts of lovely pieces. The service was excellent & I felt completely at ease asking the most basic questions about making earrings & necklaces etc.

I would highly recommend this as a place to visit & if you can, have some time up your sleeve as its such a great place to really take your time and enjoy the space. You can go already knowing what to make, or just with a vague idea and let inspiration (and the helpful staff) guide you once you're there. There are some lovely pieces already made up and I didn't even dare venture into the adjoining jewellery store as from where I was sitting it all looked far too lovely & I knew I would be very tempted to take a few pieces home.

It's high on my list to visit again some time soon!

Thank Anna L

Good to see this business reestablshed in New Regent Street. The quality and range of distinctive jewellery is great. Bought the Christchcurch cathedral pendants for my sisters. This visit I bought beautiful distinctive amber drop earrings fashioned as autumn leaves and sterling silver owl earrings. Well worth a visit for the jewellery and to support the reestablshment fof Christchurch businesses. Friendly service included for free!
