Design By Meg moves to Etsy!

I’ve had a passion for beads for as long as I can remember. Many years ago, I stumbled across a box with my old supplies and started playing with some of the leftover wire and beads and made my first angel. As the design started to improve, I made a few as gifts and soon people were telling me I should make more and sell them.... so here I am!

After years of tweaking my design and experimenting with a variety of wire, tools, and techniques, I now believe that she is done evolving, but one never knows when a creative moment may put her back on the drawing board for a makeover.

Although my angels are my pride and joy, you'll find several other items in my shop, as I love creating new items, sometimes experimenting with new mediums, but you can be sure beads will usually be involved! (I think beads are my weakness!) Sun catchers and wall designs are among my favorites to work on, as I love "writing" in wire. Each one is individually designed with limitless possibilities, allowing me to express my creativity. I also make custom designs, so if you have something in mind, just contact me and we can work together to make that special item just for you!
