Announcement    tiny beads sewn by hand...
If you've had your eye on a listing that is no longer appearing in my shop...please contact me. The item may have expired and is possibly still available.
You can find more of my beadwork here: handmadewarrior.bigcartel.com

H e l l o ! I'm Trish.
This beadwork is entirely designed & hand stitched by me. My process is free-form without diagram; ergo, my design is neither drawn/plotted beforehand nor computer generated. Rather, I shape and create the very moment I am connecting with the bead.

Each bead is individually selected then sewn with a keen attention to detail and practiced tension.

Tools: a needle, bead thread, and my own two hands.

This work is strongly driven by my love for combining color and creating free-form expressions. Great fulfillment comes from designing every piece start to finish.

If you're a fellow beader:

Please understand, my work is not a copy of another's form or pattern.
With respect to my efforts and creative ingenuity, I sincerely ask that you DO NOT use my work for direct copy, or loose template.

If your method is copying, please find a maker who is selling or sharing their patterns.

Bead on + Bead courageously. Thank you!

with these hands...

hand/made: made by hand or a hand process

war/ri/or: one who is engaged aggressively or energetically in an activity, cause, or conflict.

I am a self taught "beadstress" with a love for combining color, free-form designs, and shape. Every piece is completely designed and hand sewn by me using a needle, thread, and my own two hands. Each bead individually selected and thoughtfully stitched with a keen attention to detail and practiced tension.

My designs are not hand-drawn or computer generated. All bead placement and color selection takes place during the actual moments of making.

My work is a process of love pouring out over hours spent making these original, wearable pieces. My hope is that you will love them as deeply.

I live in Utah with my beautiful, blue-eyed best friends (my husband and son) and one fastidious Tortie.

--Every piece is hand stitched and uniquely designed by me. Pieces are created free-form and are not diagrammed.

--I am self-taught and create through a love for combining color, free-form designs, and shape.

--I do not follow patterns or use a computer to generate patterns for me, and ask that my work/photos not be used for template or copy.

--With respect to my process, aside from most two color combos, I do not remake/copy earring sets. Each piece was created within its own space and time, and for this cannot be duplicated. I can create a custom request based on an original, but not identical. Thank you for understanding.

--Interested in a custom order? Contact me! I may charge a small increase for such requests, but look forward to working with you!

--In addition to original designs you are receiving quality + thoughtful workmanship. If you have any issues with your pieces please, don't hesitate to contact me!

***Wider and larger pieces have more flexion in certain areas as weight increases. You may notice a natural movement/fold while wearing, it can easily be corrected with a gentle reposition every now and again. I personally enjoy seeing and feeling only bead, and so allow this organic response to gravity. I do not control my pieces with added material like leather, glue, or wiring. Please understand and consider this fact before making them yours.

ALL ITEMS are created in a clean, smoke free environment. IMPORTANT: pet allergies, I do have a cat.

CARE Suggestions:

1. Your items were made with love and tenderness. Care for them likewise.

2. STORAGE: It is recommended to store earrings hanging or flat to prevent the beads/thread from kinking.

3. ADJUSTING: With movement and time the beads will settle. Avoid pulling to adjust the fringe. Instead, gently roll/smooth between fingers to reposition. I like to rotate in an upward/downward direction as needed. The beads are glass, and delicate if put to the test. Stress and tension could cause thread and beads to break or hang uneven.

4. Keep away from water and high steam environments including hot tubs/hot springs.

5. Over time some colors may fade. Store out of direct sunlight.

6. Care for your beadwork as you would fine jewelry. The beads are glass and some areas may contain exposed thread. Always consider your pieces to be both strong AND fragile.

COLOR: I do my best to accurately depict and describe color. Variants may exist due to our individual monitor settings and mind's-eye. ***PLEASE BE AWARE some beads are SEMI/NON PERMANENT COLOR. Over time color may fade. This can add character to the work, but may be a disappointment to some. I attempt to indicate when semi-permanent colors are used, however, such information is not always provided from the supplier. Thank you for your understanding.
