Where it all began
Burhouse Limited was founded in 1968 by chairman Clinton Burhouse while he was a student in London. The company initially started bulk breaking semi-precious gemstones and supplying the then-popular lapidary hobby market. In 1974, the market demanded a development into calibrated stones and jewellery components.
We have spent more than 50 years continuously developing our jewellery components, gemstone bead and cabochon lines.
Throughout the last decade, the business has seen many changes as it has been passed on to the next generation of the Burhouse family. And with the increasing demand for beading products, the company has focused on expanding further into sterling silver, gemstone and a unique plated cabochon settings line called BH Stampings.
What we do
We constantly source and develop new lines and regularly commission our customers’ ideas for production with our overseas suppliers or in our warehouse manufacturing facility.
In 2018, the business rebranded back to its original name of Burhouse Limited (after trading as Burhouse Beads for the previous 10 years). We undertook a renovation and move within the mill as sister company Rock Shop moved as a separate limited company to new premises in Meltham. Rock Shop continues to supply wholesale crystals, minerals, fossils and gemstone gift lines. Visit Rock Shop.
