Icatcha Jewellery designed and made by Andrea Martineau
How it all began.
Andrea Martineau began her beading jewellery career at the age of seven, sitting on top of a step ladder in the garden making necklaces from beads for her dollies. Early visits to the Natural History Museum and Science museum with her father began a love affair with natural rocks and semi-precious gemstones. These are often now used in her handmade beaded jewellery, available on this website and in several retailers across SW Wales.
Andrea is also happy to receive personal enquiries at home (Telephone 01348 874886) and is pleased to take special commissions.
Enjoying art and craft at college, and the creativity of working with children with learning difficulties, Andrea then spent many years of discovery with modern and traditional needlework commissions and water-colour painting. A love of botanic and landscape art, combined with living in the midst of the most beautiful Welsh coastal countryside, endows her handmade beaded jewellery work with coordinated and original design.
Her mother’s heirloom pearl necklace which was worn on both mother’s and Andrea’s wedding days snapped. The need to repair it was the inspiration which led to the ICATCHA enterprise.
