Bongo Beads is a handmade jewellery brand, set up by me (Melissa Dixon) from my home in Barnes SW13. Each piece is designed and made to order by me.

I’ve always had a bit of a thing for kitsch style. I started beading just before the pandemic with my niece as a shared interest.

Before Bongo Beads, I had a career in digital marketing, working for an agency for 13 years where lead a digital marketing team 🤓👩🏼‍💻✨

Wearing bright jewellery is one of my happy tools. I’m a big believer in when you look good, you feel good and so you’re more likely to go out into the world and do good!💘🙌🏻

I want people to feel good when they wear Bongo Beads, that’s my mission! 🌈✨🙏🏻

My aim is to create fun and colourful jewellery that can be worn together with your other favourite gold or silver jewellery 🧡💙💜💚💛
