Beautiful necklace. It was actually free with another necklace I ordered but I hadn't noticed the BOGO deal so the shop owner made it a point of contacting me to let me know and pick out the second item I wanted

The necklace I ordered was just as it was pictured. Great addition to my bohemian style jewelry!

Bead N Chain Jewelry started out of necessity in 1975
My name is Jeannine Fornarotto. I am the owner, creator of Beadnchainjewelry
I was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. Became the youngest member of the Ottawa Ballet Co. at age eleven.
At that time I was privileged to see a preview of the movie The Red Shoes.
It remains to this day my favorite film.
When I was fifteen I traveled to London, England and Paris, France to continue my dancing education.
Although I did not go to college, this 2 yr. journey abroad taught me many life lessons.
My beading talent never came to be until my husband took ill in 1975
With lessons from a friend I was able to start crafting and selling some of my jewelry which provided us with much needed income.
It wasn't until July 2008, after open heart surgery that my daughter suggested I open my Etsy Shoppe. That is when Bead n Chain Jewelry was born.
Everyone asks me how I design and pick my colors. I tell them that I often see a finished piece in my dreams or when I am quietly meditating especially after I receive a new bead order.
I have always prided myself in making only one of a kind, but lately I have filled a wedding order. That is a new approach for me.
Many ups and downs have occurred in my life. On the upside, I became a great grandmother at the age of 77 to my granddaughter's sweet little boy, named Ethan, born, Dec. 9th, 2013
It is only by the Grace of God that I am here to tell you a little bit about myself and my Beading Journey.
Any questions about my shoppe, a custom order or changes in any one of my designs, please contact me. I'd love to hear from you.
Wishing everyone who has taken the Handmade plunge, much success in all your endeavors.
