Announcement   Welcome! I'm Trish. My beadwork is entirely designed & hand stitched by me.
Every bead individually selected then sewn with a keen attention to detail and practiced tension.
My tools: glass beads, bead thread, a needle, and my own two hands.

I taught myself the brick stitch in 2008 with a basic set of instructions found online. Since then, I've used an entirely autodidact approach.
Developing my skills through personal discovery, I bravely design form and combine colors from my pattern within.
Just some of the reasons I call my pieces warriors.

My work is strongly driven by my love for combining color and constructing unique form. Great fulfillment comes from designing every piece start to finish.

How do you forge your path, actualize your visions, honor your honor?


If you too are a 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 and Be Brave enough to discover what is inside you. Thank you!

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, I would LOVE to ship to you...please message me so that I may provide you with the best quote.
***I am not responsible for USPS shipping delays, custom clearances etc., please plan accordingly.

Color: I do my best to accurately depict and describe color. Read description! 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 understanding.

***With respect to my process, apart from two color combos, I generally do not remake/copy earring sets. Each piece was created within its own space and time, and for this cannot be duplicated. Thank you for understanding.


I would love you to VISIT MY POLICIES SECTION FOR CARE SUGGESTIONS and more about my items!

We do share nest with one cat. Allergies be warned.

Love love love!! Super great communication and really made sure we were on the same page regarding style and colors, since it was a custom order. Couldn't be happier. Super fast considering they were custom handmade and quick shipping. Thank you!!

This is my second purchase from HandmadeWarrior. Trish's work is stunning, the colors she selects for her designs are so lovely. Communication is excellent, and shipping was super fast. I'm so happy to have another pair of HandmadeWarrior earrings in my collection! Thanks so much!

About

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 and designing 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 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.

    Beadwork is my calm & my crazy, my method for bleeding colors that move & haunt me. Fulfilled with making stitches. Romanced by needlework folklore, texture and most definitely color.

--Every piece is hand stitched and uniquely designed by me, all are one-of-a-kind. I am self-taught and create through a love for combining color, designing shape and pattern.

--I do not follow patterns and ask that my work/photos not be used for template or copy.

--Interested in a custom order? Contact me, serious inquiries only, please! I do charge extra for such requests, but look forward to working with you!

--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. Thank you for understanding.

--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 or wiring. Please understand and consider this fact before making them yours.

ALL ITEMS are created in a clean, smoke free environment and stored in designated craft bins. 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 or steam including hot tubs/hot springs.

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

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.
