A Sparkle Beast is Born

♥Hello everyone, I'm Natalie and I adore anything beaded, colorful, cute, and sparkly. I'm a trained seamstress and theatrical costumer designer with a passion for jewelry design. I worked in the DC area from 2011-2014 as a theatrical costumer and quit to work full time at Sparkle Beast Designs. I enjoy gardening, video games, travel and food!

Sparkling beaded and rhinestone jewelry captivated me from an early age and by creating my jeweled statement pieces, I'm able to incorporate nostalgia and an obsession all at once! The name "Sparkle Beast Jewelry" was given to me by my friends in high school. They thought the name would emphasize my reputation for loving sparkles, and it has stuck ever since!

I work from my colorful and cozy home office in northern Virginia!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

As of July 2017, I am no longer taking custom orders.

Sizing details

The chain/clasp upgrade on my illusion and bib-style necklaces measures 3.5 inches on either side of your necklace (7 inches total). This is not your standard chain length as these designs are not your typically strand style necklace. In my experience, I have found that this 7 inches of chain is plenty for a comfortable fit. Yes, there is room for adjusting as well!

Will I receive my order in time?

If you have a deadline that is quickly approaching, please leave me a note along with your order. I'll see your note and fill your order as quickly as I can (I will contact you if I absolutely cannot get your order to you on time and will promptly cancel/refund your order). Standard shipping within the US takes 2-3 business days, but the USPS Express mail upgrade available at checkout should take 1-2 business days.

For clients that are outside of the US, I suggest ordering your piece at least 3 weeks in advance as I can only estimate how long shipping will take. Please understand that once I drop a package off at the post office, there is little I can do to expedite the process.

What is the fabric base? What color should I select?

If you see an option to select a "Fabric Base", you are looking at one of my original "illusion" style statement or bib necklaces. I use fabric as a base for these pieces because that helps to create a floating look when it is worn. There is a photo in each listing that shows an example of each fabric and a brief explanation of the differences.

For the majority of the photos I take, I use the "fair tulle" fabric because it matches my skin tone quite well (I model in the majority of my listings!) and it blends nicely with a white background.

If you are planning on wearing a piece over a garment rather than your bare skin, then you must take the color of your garment into consideration before making a selection. I suggest the tulle.
