Janet Morrison Minto

Announcement    I started my career in the arts early, first as the muse, collaborator and wife of Irish Rock icon Van Morrison and later worked for 15 years as a successful songwriter and studio singer in Los Angeles. In 1992 I transitioned into another home based business designing and creating my own collection of one-of-a-kind beaded jewelry, Lovebeads By Janet Planet.

Welcome to my shop ~~ I hope that as you browse you will find a necklace or bracelet that speaks to you. If you don't see exactly what you're looking for, no worries! I LOVE making custom, made to order pieces for customers using their ideas. Just message/convo me and let's create something memorable! :-)


All my newest Lovebeads for the season will be found here. I use semiprecious gemstone beads, seashell, freshwater pearls, my beautiful “faux ivory” bone beads, a huge array of the newest and most exclusive and fascinating Czech fire-polished beads as well as an expanding group of vintage and antique beads and pendants, Swarovski crystals and cloisonné enamels to add a burst of color and subtle sparkle to any ensemble. I hope you enjoy reading my extended musings on each piece I create, along with the specific stones I used. This bit of fanciful prose will also come in a romance card that will accompany each necklace.

Click on any of the scans to make them larger and, of course, contact me with any questions, ideas or comments about any of the pieces. Remember: every piece is custom, one-of-a-kind, so anything can be sized or made to your specifications.

Find lots of new mark-downs and special orders are always welcome - if you don't see exactly what you're looking for just convo me and let's chat. :-) I want everyone to have one of my beautiful necklaces - there are styles here to fit every budget. Choose a lasting memento of a wonderful era, when it seemed that anything was possible... Cheers!

About lovebeadsbyjp

On Etsy since 2010

Welcome To Lovebeads By Janet Planet!

I started my career in the arts early, first as the collaborator, wife and fabled muse of Irish Rock icon Van Morrison and later worked for 15 years as a successful songwriter and studio singer in Los Angeles. But in 1992 I wanted a change, and since I’ve always loved beaded jewelry, I decided to design and create my own collection of one-of-a-kind beaded jewelry, with the idea that these would be pieces that I would wish to wear. I called my new venture Lovebeads By Janet Planet. Over the years, I’ve designed over 1500 one-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelet sets and I’ve met so many wonderful people in the process.

I work with a vast array of the best of the newest and most exclusive and fascinating Czech fire-polished beads as well as an expanding group of vintage and antique beads and pendants, Swarovski crystals, semiprecious gemstone beads, seashell, freshwater pearls, my beautiful “faux ivory” bone beads and cloisonné enamels to add a burst of color and subtle sparkle to any ensemble. My necklaces and bracelets sell exclusively on my lovebeadsbyjanetplanet Facebook page and here on Etsy; each one arrives gift-wrapped and includes a romance card featuring my extended musings along with a description of the beads or gemstones I used.

I'm always available on Facebook and Etsy if you have any questions, ideas or comments about any of the pieces. Remember: every piece is custom, one-of-a-kind, so anything can be sized or an entirely new piece can be made to your specifications – special orders are always welcome and I love doing them because then I can know exactly what you’d like.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for just email or convo me and let's chat. :-) I want everyone to enjoy beautiful necklaces and bracelet sets - there are styles to fit every budget. I invite you to choose a lasting memento of a wonderful era in my life, when it seemed that anything was possible...
Cheers!

    It's a one-woman organization with the exception of photography and various small printing jobs, those are tackled by my husband Chris. I keep threatening to have him try doing shipping too, but so far he's managed to resist. :-)

    My husband Chris does all my photography and also the layout and printing of the romance cards that accompany each of my lovebeads pieces. Additionally, he helps with assorted tasks like affixing jump rings to clasps - I never quite the hang of doing this, but he's great at it. :-)

Janet Morrison Minto, aka Janet Planet, started her beading business in Los Angeles, CA in 2003 after a successful 20 year career writing songs. Her unique style is full of exuberant energy, densely placed flowers and leaves, weaving vines, studded with gems that many have said evoke a somehow more innocent time when everything seemed possible. Each semiprecious gemstone and specialty Czech bead necklace she designs is one-of-a-kind work of art, made with love. Always at deepest heart a writer, her descriptive musings on each necklace, detailing her inspiration for each one and a detailed list of the various elements used have become almost as popular among devotees of her work as the necklaces themselves.

Her inspirations are as wide-ranging as the necklaces. Nature, both wild and in the garden, flowers always, art and paintings, her children’s early years and of course the lore and legend of various healing semiprecious stones. Sometimes a fanciful story or scene will present itself to her and she will attempt to capture it in jewels. She has created pieces after waking from dreams, from cherished memories, reminiscences and moments of destiny.

“Each necklace I make will never be duplicated, it will be owned by you alone. Take a ramble through my Etsy store and you’ll see: no two are alike. I make each one lovingly by hand, with gratitude. Thank you for taking the time to have a peek at my sparkly treasures!”
