Hello to All Bead and Jewelry Fanatics!

I taught myself the art beading after my grandmother passed away 10 years ago. She had left me with a large collection of costume jewelry. The individual beads were beautiful but the pieces were outdated. Looking at the beads and clasps, I decided to rework the pieces and got myself hooked on the design and the art of beading.

Fast forward a few years…and I am surrounded by an incredible collection of beads! As a bead enthusiast, I have continued my quest for vintage beads by perusing estate sales and flea markets. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning! I also collected many beads during the years I spent living in Africa. Many of my designs include vintage beads and clasps as well as sterling silver, Murano glass and artisan lampwork beads.

I had put my beads away for a few years but after losing my job, I decided to start beading again. I love the freedom that ETSY has brought…no more craft shows as being a mom to four kids is my priority now!

Have fun looking at my designs. I always welcome custom orders. I also can repair and renovate your jewelry pieces. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Cheers, Jennifer
