This store houses a hand picked collection of unique un-circulated vintage beads and findings that were manufactured between 1920's-1980's. The selection is forever changing but the quality of beads remain the same. Most of the vintage lucite that I carry was at one time custom made for Monet, Vivendi and other high end designers back in the 1980's. I buy directly from the manufacturer's overstock so you will rarely see these beads anywhere else. I carry beads from all over the world. Japan, Africa, Philippines, Thailand and West Germany to name a few. I will always choose quality over quantity which means that I will have a limited quantity available in some of the beads that I offer. For that reason, I recommend purchasing items when you see them as I am not always able to restock items.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to convo me at anytime. I am on site throughout the day.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous large tortoise colored lucite beads. The rich color is to die for and the scale and shape of the beads demands attention. The quality is superb and I am ecstatic to have these beads with which to create. Thank you for carefully packaging my purchase to arrive in a timely manner and undamaged by the rigors of travel. I will certainly be back soon.

What can I say, these beads are just stunners - marvelous in scale, color and craftsmanship. What a class act and I am thrilled to be able to include them in my creations. Thank you for carefully packaging my purchase to arrive in a timely manner and undamaged by the rigors of travel. I will certainly be back soon.

I have purchased these before and came back for more. I love the combination of colors in these small Czech glass beads - absolutely perfect details to pull together the colors in a necklace. Beautifully crafted and produced, I am proud to have these beads utilized in one of my creations. Thank you for carefully packaging my purchase to arrive in a timely manner and undamaged by the rigors of travel. I will certainly be back soon.

I adore these deep purple beads with the golden swirls that give these beads an extra bu,t oh so subtle, glimmer. I have already used them in a necklace and I am ecstatic with the result. Thanks, again, BlueMarbleBeads for exactly the quality element I needed to proudly complete one of my projects. You are just the BEST. Thank you for carefully packaging my purchase to arrive in a timely manner and undamaged by the rigors of travel. I will certainly be back soon.

Absolutely fabulous faux carnelian beads. The deeply saturated colors are just breath-taking, the shape and quality of the beads is superlative and will be beautiful additions to a necklace I have pictured in my mind, at this point. I can ALWAYS rely on BlueMarbleBeads for beyond excellent quality. Thank you for carefully packaging my purchase to arrive in a timely manner and undamaged by the rigors of travel. I will certainly be back soon.

These carved horn "hand" pendant/charms are enchanting. The quality craftsmanship of the production of these hands is superior and the scale just perfect to be used as a featured pendant with a tribal feel on a necklace or bracelet. I adore these components. Thank you for carefully packaging my purchase to arrive in a timely manner and undamaged by the rigors of travel. I will certainly be back soon.

About

Enjoying The Journey

Life has taken me down many roads. I started out like many artist do, experimenting with creativity through different mediums. I dabbled in many other art forms such as stained glass, painting, writing and singing. I always ended up gravitating towards jewelry design. Maybe it's the Magpie in me, or maybe it's just my "true north".

I am a self taught artist. My designs have been featured in Arts On Liberty art gallery in NC. as well as local boutiques. My bead shop has been featured in many major beading magazines over the years.

I believe in giving back to the community. I teach jewelry design to local teenagers. I believe that creativity is as essential to life as taking in nourishment. It needs to be shared and passed on. I love watching that first spark in a new designer's eye. That first flame of passion for the craft. It's a beautiful thing to behold!

Oh, the kid in the picture? He's mine. Amazingly and wonderfully mine. He's the reason behind all of this!
