OnTheBead's Shop Announcement

Welcome!! The Flight Series features 18 different Cuff Wings, Ear Wings, Tie Pins and Tie Tacks - Please see them all!

Looking for the new items? .......please convo to tell me what interests you so it can be listed in the order requests are received - otherwise items will be listed as time allows - Thank You!

Thank You for your interest! Please visit again - and feel free to bring your friends along!


OnTheBead is a one woman operation – so from time to time you may find the shop closed for two or three days.

This is to facilitate the shipping process – as it isn’t right to continue to sell things when you can’t imagine how you will get them all shipped out in a timely fashion.

The shop will also be closed before Christmas every year – and reopened the following January or February.

To avoid disappointment - please plan your purchases accordingly.

Thank You for choosing OnTheBead – hope you will find something that interests you!


My name is Julie.
I have been making jewelry seriously since 1974, and have a degree in jewelry making and art. My first Steampunk pieces were made in 1980 when enrolled in an Art Metals college course (couldn’t afford precious metals). I made a whole series of pieces utilizing watch parts – including pendant necklaces with etched pocket watch parts - and boy did I get ridiculed (that’s not ART)! In the end everything sold except for a few pins I have to this day.
I live in the United States near Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
All of my pieces are made with attention to detail and quality.

If you see something you like, but would like it in a different color or stone please convo us!

Have ideas for a piece of custom jewelry, but need someone to make it for you?
I am always happy to help!

Feel free to convo me with any questions, comments and suggestions you may have.

Thanks again for stopping by, Julie – OnTheBead.Etsy.com

P.S. - As time allows - I will be selling my extensive collection of vintage and antique jewelry and accessories. The process will likely take years - so please check back to see if "new" items have been added.


Many of the items in the store were made to be worn by adults of all ages - but are not meant for very small children.


Thank You.


See something in the sold items that you don’t see in the store? Feel free to convo – we may have more!
