~Embrace Your Origins~
I formed my business, Mamacita Beadworks, ten years ago with a desire to bring an organic touch to All-American, high quality pewter beads, buttons, clasps and pendants. My passion is to create original designs available to those who appreciate true artistry as much as I do. Being a woman owned business is both exciting and challenging.
Over the years I have remained committed to high quality materials sourced straight from California. With the state's careful regulations, my work is guaranteed to be lead and nickel free.
Mamacita Beadworks takes the time to accentuate quality in the world of beads and to ensure that every beautiful design is both unique and significant. With each piece of work, there is a story of origin and inspiration.

Owner, Maker, Designer, Metal Mama Extraordinaire
I make beads. Tiny treasures that end up in all sorts for wonderful places; necks, ears, national magazines and published books. I am ecstatic when designers use my work to make more art. It is an honor when my work is a gift. I love what I do.
