About

Victorian revival and romantic retro beadwoven jewelry with gemstones, pearls and more!

I opened my shop in 2007 but I became active in 2008
My designs have resulted from my aspiration to bring more beauty to everyday life, to inspire good feelings, to increase self-awareness and to share my own creative joy.
The mystery of my art consists in the loving effort invested in each piece. I believe in artists’ freedom to express themselves trough form and color. The lasting symbols - love, faith, sincerity, purity, hope, renewal, good luck, are always present in my work.
My love of stones and beads gave birth to a unique style of jewelry, perfected by a meticulous technique of assemblage.
Nature is a source of inspiration and my creativity allows materials to express their own beauty. I like to use semiprecious stones, genuine pearls, shells and lots of tiny beads in my pieces. I am trying to achieve a natural, shaded look, by incorporating several nuances of beads for each color I choose.

Often I had the surprise to receive emails from people I have met on Etsy.
Thank you, Allie, Marilyn, Verna, Elizabeth and Ally! You are very generous!

"I just had to tell you how very talented you are! Your work is just STUNNING! I have never seen this kind of beadwork and I LOVE IT! Your designs are gorgeous and I think I "liked" more of your items than not! LOL I am just dazzled by your talent and I wanted you to know"!
Allie

"I have some of your jewelry from the Museum of Women in the Arts and the glass exhibit in NJ. One is a bird with feathers that I love! The other is a blue heart with pearls. It is so unusual and I always get positive comments about the pieces!"
Marilyn

"I just wanted to say how awestruck I am by your magnificent creations! The time involved in each piece is probably unbelievable. It is hard to realize that you have created some many beautiful projects and still have time to do anything else!
What a wonderful experience, just to browse through your gallery"!
Verna

"I'm speechless!!! This is THE most gorgeous brooch I have ever seen. Incredible, intricate work!! Thank you so much!"
Elizabeth

"Dear Ileana,

I just wanted to thank you for your beautiful work and to let you know that can see all of the love and care that went into this pouch. I will treasure this special piece forever!

Of all the many beautiful objects and magical tools I've purchased on Etsy, this is one of my favorites. Photos don't do it justice. Beyond my expectations and truly a masterpiece! Thank you so much. It will be loved and cared for.

Blessings,
Ally P".

BEADWOVEN JEWELRY CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Dear Customer,

Thank you for purchasing from an Etsy BeadWeavers (EBW) Team member’s shop.
Following are some instructions regarding your purchase. These guidelines will ensure your beadwoven jewelry piece will remain as beautiful in the future as on the day you bought it.

Jewelry bought from the shops of EBW Team members is hand-made from tiny glass beads and thread or cord. As any other piece of valued jewelry it requires special care.

Please store your beadwoven items in the original package in a dry place that is protected from direct sunlight. EBW Team members use only high quality materials in their creations; however, many types of seed beads can tarnish, change, or even loose their color if stored in high moisture, heat or sunlight. Those conditions may also damage the thread, making it brittle. A soft pouch will prevent seed beads, crystals and gems in your woven items from chipping and scratching. Avoid dropping or tossing your beadwoven jewelry onto hard surfaces.

Never expose beadwoven jewelry to water, perfume or any other chemicals (including soap and other detergents, crèmes, lotions, disinfectants, etc.). Do not wear it when doing dishes, taking showers or swimming. Make sure to take it off before going to bed.

If these recommendations for care are not followed, we cannot guarantee your complete satisfaction with our products, nor their durability. When properly cared for beadwoven jewelry will serve you for many years to come and may even stay in your family for generations.

Sincerely,

Ileana / Enchanted Beads
