nardiesarttowear's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Nardie's Art-to-Wear Boutique where you can find an accessory that is original and will reflect your own unique personal style. Also will offer some destash vintage treasure finds and excess beads collected for years, as I can't possibly use all of them in my own creations.

Creative beadwork and bead embroidery have been favorite hobbies for the past 16 years. I began collecting beads about 28 years ago and have a wide variety of beads to use now in my own creations, along with gemstones and unique contemporary finds.

Another passion of mine for the past 12 years is creating small pieced fiber art purses with beautiful fabrics, which I lavishly hand embroider and embellish in my own style in a modern version of the old Victorian crazy quilts. I use contemporary and antique beads, seedbeads, gemstone beads, original lampwork glass cabochons, dyed vintage lace, silk ribbon embroidered flowers and vines done by hand, various fibers, fabric images, and beautiful vintage glass or metal buttons for closures. This gives these little art purses eye-catching appeal and also makes them a great conversation piece, as they are truly one of a kind.

I want to thank for designing my beautiful banner, using her wonderful imagination and amazing graphics design talent! And be sure to check out her jewelry shop too - for some innovative contemporary jewelry designs, as she truly has her own colorful and unique style.
