Hi, and welcome to BeadfulStrings!

My name is Erin Chatterton. Here in my shop you will find various styles of handmade beaded jewelry for all ages. My goal is to take over the world, one bead at a time! Mwahahahahahaha.

In 1996 I had taken a trip to Seattle with my sister for an art show and saw some of the most gorgeous handmade jewelry, so intricate and beautiful. I decided I wanted to try my hand at beading. My first creation was an eyeglass chain for my sunglasses. I loved it, and I was hooked on beads. I beaded like a banshee (if banshee's did indeed bead) for a few years (it was great having gifts to give for any and every occasion), but after a while I found myself not knowing what to do about the massive amounts of jewelry I had…

My first creation was an eyeglass chain for my sunglasses. I loved it, and I was hooked on beads. I beaded like a banshee (if banshee's did indeed bead) for a few years (it was great having gifts to give for any and every occasion), but after a while I found myself not knowing what to do about the massive amounts of jewelry I had just lying around. I started selling in small boutiques and craft shows, and then met the new interest in my life...my husband. I packed up all of my beads and jewelry, got married and started raising a family. My beading days seemed to be over.

In 2010, when my youngest started pre-school and finding myself with a few free hours during the day, my husband suggested we create a work space to try my hand at beading again. My sister told me about this great place called, "Etsy". At first I just couldn't imagine trying to sell my wares to the world, but time warmed me up to the idea. That is how I came to be on Etsy. I have a renewed love of beading, and a place to share my creations with more than just my family.

I simply adore beads. I get excited by all the shimmering colors. When I get a new shipment it feels like Christmas, or like I am looking at exotic candy, or a kings treasure. There are so many colors, shimmering and wonderful, and sometimes it is really hard to choose which one to use next. I really love working with tiny beads as they tend to make a lighter, more delicate piece of jewelry, but I do try to have a little something for everyone.

If you find something that you like, but want it in a different color or size, feel free to contact me. If I am able, I will be more than happy to recreate something just for you.

Every piece is made with a lot of attention and love. I hope you love what you see, and I truly hope you have a wonderful day!
