About Dragonfire Beads

Found in the heart of the KZN Midlands Meander is a delightful and passionate team of ladies under the guidance of Barbara Magrath who runs and operates Dragonfire Beads.

Situated only 3km away from the Howick Tweedie N3 offramp it is very easy to find and worth the stop over en route to JHB or Durban. Being one of the first stops on the famous Midlands Meander route there is no excuse to not explore this gem. 

Come and watch Barbara and her team make the most amazing Murano Glass beads and jewelry pieces. The magic happens behind the gas torches, also referred to as the Dragons Fire. Barbara and her team encourage visitors to watch whilst they make their next prized glass creation.  

Every piece of jewelry is hand crafted using the original Venetian glass lampwork technique and no two pieces are identical. Unique styles include elements of  our African Landscapes and South African seashores to name a few. Come in and see what Mermaids Eyes look like if ever you should swim into one.

The quaint sales office and combined workshop is part of the Tweedie Junction Shop network and offers a range of affordable and vibrant Murano Glass Jewelry pieces (which include bracelets, necklaces, earring sets, pendants and the very popular Annabella beads for your charm bracelet).

There is always such a relaxed vibe and with the permanent smell of freshly ground coffee hanging in the air from the adjacent neighbors sought after coffee grind, its the ideal place to stretch the legs, browse for a while and experience a special Meander moment.

 So come and visit!
