Lara was really responsive and helpful in letting me make a custom order. She accommodated a large custom order in a short amount of time because I'm on a time crunch, and the items were even better in person than in the photos. Extreme pleasure to work with, thank you!

About

Ever evolving family creativity

Years ago, I took an earring design class while on vacation in Vermont. I loved it so much, I involved my young twin daughters for a fun activity we could enjoy together. We ended up creating so many things we knew we needed to make a small business out of it. Our first craft fair took place that Fall where I met a fellow artist who told me about Etsy. That is how our Etsy adventure began.

My girls created our name -- 3 Bead Designs -- because we were the "3 beaders". We have evolved from beading to more vintage inspired creations and metal working. Each piece is designed and created by us in our home studio. My girls are now teenagers and my models in all my photos:) My son has recently started with texturizing some metal pieces and helping with shows. He is the "Hammer Master."

We like to support our fellow Etsians so most of our materials come from US based Etsy supply shops. We use the highest quality materials we can find and aim to keep our designs affordable, long lasting, and safe for sensitive skin.

We enjoy having a creative outlet and are constantly trying new techniques and materials. We are particularly inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains where we live. Flowers, trees, and mountains are a common theme for our creations.

We love and appreciate handcrafted items and thank you for supporting independent, handmade shops!

Frequently asked questions

How are my items packaged?

My necklaces and rings arrive in a gift box, tissue paper, and ribbon ready for gifting. My bracelets, earrings, and keychains are packaged in a soft hand stamped cotton muslin drawstring bag.
All items are shipped in a padded mailer.
**I will gladly include a personal note--just put it in your "notes to seller" upon checkout.
**I do not include a receipt unless requested.

How do I care for my jewelry?

*Aluminum bracelets should be rolled over the wrist not bent opened and closed, repeated bending may weaken the metal and lead to breakage.
*Sterling silver and silver plating will tarnish over time. Keep items in a plastic bag while not being worn to slow tarnishing. Some have skin reactions to silver that can cause skin discoloration. It is rare, but possible. Applying a thin coating of clear finger nail polish can help prevent this.
*Brass and copper will tarnish. Both of these metals have the ability to turn the skin green, especially when exposed to water.
*Do not bath, swim, or excessively hand wash while wearing your jewelry.
*Resin: Do not get resin pieces wet. Clean resin with a soft cloth. Keep out of sunlight.

Can I make a custom request?

I do not offer custom jewelry stamping or engraving. I can not insert photos into lockets but will include a paper template to make it easy for you to trace a photo.
I will gladly include a personal message for gift orders. Please include details in Notes to Seller.

Can I buy in bulk/wholesale?

I welcome wholesale inquiries. Please contact me via convos or at 3beaddesigns@stonypoint.com to discuss terms.
