A converted garage has been transformed into a treasure chest of handmade necklaces, bracelets and beads.
Chrystal Adcock, of Necton, has had a passion for jewellery since she was young and began making her own at the age of nine.
Now the 26-year-old has opened a new business in a 9ft by 9ft room at her Chapel Road home – appropriately called Chrystal’s Bead and Craft Cupboard.
Despite its tiny proportions, the shop is packed with unique and colourful pieces, with many made using glass lampwork beads that Miss Adcock has made herself.
She believes the shop, which specialises in beads and jewellery-making equipment, could be one of the smallest in Britain.
The business, run with the support of her mum Rose, opened on January 18 and has received a warm welcome so far.
Miss Adcock, who attended Norwich City College and De Montfort University in Leicester, also teaches and exhibits at craft shows around the country.
The shop is open from 10am to 4pm on Tuesday and Thursday.
