Hello and welcome to my new Etsy store. I’m Nathalie. I have a background in fine art and in jewelry design and I am a “thing maker” by nature. This supply shop started 7 years ago as a de-stash from my vast collection of beads and supplies and grew from there into a full-time business. I want to thank you for allowing me to spend my days playing with the things I love most.

When I was younger, I remember my aunt saying: “your time and handwork is worth the best materials you can find” and I have taken that to heart.

Hello and welcome to my new Etsy store. I’m Nathalie. I have a background in fine art and in jewelry design and I am a “thing maker” by nature. This supply shop started 7 years ago as a de-stash from my vast collection of beads and supplies and grew from there into a full-time business. I want to thank you for allowing me to spend my days playing with the things I love most.

When I was designing full-time, I was frustrated that I could not readily find the beads and findings that brought old collectible jewelry and clothing to life, and so I started on a quest to find them.

I see it as my job (and my pleasure!) to search out the very best in materials and supplies for your hand made creations. I travel the world seeking out the most glamorous, delicate, intricate, and unique beads, baubles and trims that I can find. I spend my days happily crawling around dusty warehouse floors and other such glamorous spots in search of forgotten treasures and I am so excited to bring them to you.

All the vintage and antique items that come to you have been cleaned and sorted. Many of the rhinestone crystal sew-on beads are assembled in my studio using vintage parts and new parts that I have made to my specifications and they are ready for you to incorporate into your designs. In addition to vintage and antique finds, I do offer a selection of new items that I think are fantastic, useful, and lovely.

I hope that this shop inspires you to make something beautiful. I am convo-friendly. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
