I've been creating and embellishing people,places and things my whole life..I constantly feel the gush to create and to collect. I'm in love with beads, in fact, Beadaholic is a great word for me and most of the women that I know. Have I influenced any of them? I hope so! I enjoy decorating a neck,a dress, a person, enhancing their Aura, complimenting a complexion, matching a special piece of clothing. All this adds POWER to the Warrior Woman or the Business Professional. Does it add to an everyday person? Of course! But, I create for Drama. I want YOU to be noticed when you walk into a room. These pieces simply enhance who YOU are.
A necklace is like a personal poem,a wearable painting or just some atmosphere added to an ensemble. Simple and elegant or screaming a personality, all are fair game and are…

I've been selling my own creations for over 40 years, doing everything from wholesale trade shows to running my own stores in the East Village of Manhattan. I've even done sample necklaces for fashion Runways. They always need dramatic pieces. I've designed private label for some big guys! I even did 200 different sample pottery beads for a Mongolian company that has my beads all over commercial craft stores. Years of my own history but I keep growing and changing and getting better. I've enjoyed many different media: Lithography, Pottery, Clothing design, Leathercrafting, Painting and ALWAYS BEADS! Just creating a web site is new for me. Please bear with me, as I learn this new dimension and show you my treaures and my fertile creativity. I never run out of ideas. I only run out of enough hours in the day to create them. BTW, I usually design in gemstones, semiprecious stones and handblown glass, but these days due to the recession I've added plastic and resin pieces that are just as Unique and dramatic but very inexpensive ! So, my designs can be afforded by all.
Feather hair clips or Fascinators have been added to the site. I've had an extensive collection of feathers and in the 1960's and 1970's I created alot of feather earrings, hair clips, necklaces, chokers, headbands, halter. now the feathers are back and so I created with that tribal feeling once more. This makes my heart sing!
tribal, I said? well, the leathers were dear to my creative spirit, especially in the 80's and 90's untill my thumb got repetitive stress syndrome. I had to stop with leather clothing creation.. i was heartbroken. It was a media that SPOKE to me. Now I am selling all the samples that I kept! The designs went all over the world: to stores, other artist's, musicians, gallery owners and people that wanted a clothing style to reflect their creative side, not the cookie-cutter business suit, for the body, BUT for the MIND and the HEART! Enhance the spirit with outer garments, and jewelry and the spirit will grow WIDE!
Peace in all your Hearts! www.starrbeads.etsy.com
