About

I am a maker of colorful, tribal, rustic bohemian, pretty paper things

Do you have an earring obsession? Do colorful, tribal and rustic bohemian styles speak to your soul? My paper beads have been created to capture that tribal vibe for your arty bohemian side.

Each piece is carefully crafted with beautiful papers from my collection (including my hand-painted papers, and others that were digitally created by me just for making beads). These unique beads are light weight, making them comfortable for you to wear all day long. They are also very durable and quite water resistant and with proper care will last a lifetime.

Combined with other hand-made components, and Czech glass beads, gemstones, vintage trade beads, charms and talismans, you will get a one of a kind piece of wearable art that will show off uniquely beautiful, bohemian you.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

My policy for established customers is that I request a non-refundable deposit of 50% prior to beginning work on a custom order. The remainder will be due upon completion of the item.
There are no returns on custom work. I hope you understand.

For new customers the total must be paid before work is started.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All jewelry comes in a cute bag or pillow box ready for gift giving. If you buy several items and want them packaged separately just let me know.

Care instructions

You are purchasing a one of a kind handmade item that may be more delicate than mass produced jewelry; please treat it gently and with reasonable care.

I use jewelers grade sealers on patinas and surface treatments to protect them and your skin. Polymer clay and metals may have added patinas/surface treatments and though quite durable, should not be dunked in water or chemicals. Clean with a soft cloth if necessary. Paper bead components also have at least 2 coats of polycrylic sealer and are quite water resistant but not water proof.

Do not shower or swim in your jewelry.

Paper Beads

♥ Process:
My paper beads are made from paper I paint by hand or digitally design to create certain patterns and color combinations; the papers are cut into strips and rolled into beads; they are sealed with at least two coats of either matte or shiny polycrylic and are extremely durable and quite water resistant (but as with all mixed media jewelry you are advised not to shower or swim in it).
Care for your paper jewelry gently as you would any other jewelry.
