A craft studio in Congresbury is selling off exclusive jewellery to raise money for Weston Hospicecare.

Sue-Jane, who is retiring from Viva’s Beadbox in Congresbury, will hold her final open studio to sell off her jewellery in aid of the Weston charity.

Sue-Jane is renowned for her colourful and distinctive style and she has spent many years creating beaded jewellery at her studio.

The artist uses interesting and colourful semi-precious stone beads and all her creations are one-off pieces.

Weston Hospicecare has helped some of Sue-Jane’s close relatives and she is hoping to raise as much money as she can for the cause by holding a retirement sale.

Viva’s Beadbox sale will run in the studio from today (Thursday) until Sunday, from 10.30am-4pm each day.

Customers can pop along to Viva’s Beadbox, in Cadbury Square, to pick up some beautiful creations, which will be sold at discounted prices.
