Every Design Tells A Story
To my customers...........
When leaving a REVIEW: Please mark all 5 stars if you are Happy, if you are not happy I expect to hear from you as I take care of business and that means my customers are Happy! If you are not happy return within 7 days for full refund.
I ship fast and I communicate. The item MUST be returned in order to receive a refund. all measurements are approx !


At first glance, the Mexican custom of El Día de los Muertos — the Day of the Dead — may sound much like the U.S. custom of Halloween. After all, the celebration traditionally starts at midnight the night of Oct. 31, and the festivities are abundant in images related to death.
But the customs have different origins, and their attitudes toward death are different: In the typical Halloween festivities, death is something to be feared. But in el día de los muertos, death — or at least the memories of those who have died — is something to be celebrated.



When designing Day of the Dead jewelry is your passion, you sort of have a reputation to live up too.
Your visions have to be unique stories that get people excited.
The designs had better be better than all the other skull jewelry on the market.
Each design has to be a celebration. Stay true to the El Día de los Muertos tradition or take your morose designs elsewhere.
So I’m always under a ton of pressure.
And I love every millisecond of it.
I wake up in the middle of the night to lay out design concepts.
I celebrate life because I know what it is to lose half of yourself in an instant.
Vibrant color choices float around in my head until I create the perfect balance for each piece of jewelry.
So it’s no easy job, hand making Day of the Dead jewelry. No ma’am.
But it’s rewarding.
Because every design tells a story.
Because you deserve truly one of a kind earrings, wristlets, and bracelets, no two pieces are exactly the same in my shop.
So celebrate someone’s life. Dive into a story.
Thanks so much for looking around my shop and I can’t wait to create something steam punkish for you!

I hope that my artwork brings you joy that you'll want to share with others.



"The mystery of what I may design next keeps things exciting and keeps my heart devoted to this craft."



I'm so done with the Day of the Dead being something to fear and frighten.
It's not about trickery, grimace and scare tactics.
Not even close!
The day of the dead is about celebration baby!
Celebrating the lives, memories and fantasticness
of those who've passed.
So I declare CoutureBeginnings will be the stream punk stylin', day of the dead jewelry creating, Frida Kahlo channeling Etsy shop with only one real goal...

Hand making jewelry that rocks!

Welcome aboard!
I'm Patti and like the great people we've lost, designs have a unique story.
CoutureBeginnings is my way of telling that story through Day of the Dead jewelry pieces that are one of a kind, and kind to the B account.
So looksie around and find something that rocks!
Oh, I love a custom vision so don't be afraid to convo me with yours!
