    Wow, are these ever gorgeous! I love the brick-stitch technique and the gray, bronze, and ivory beads combine perfectly with the flourishes + scrolls to make a very elegant pair of earrings. I am also very happy that they are lightweight given all the detail and their size. Absolutely love these stunning, statement earrings!

    These are gorgeous! I wore them to work for the first time yesterday (I’m a cashier) and I got endless compliments from customers and coworkers alike! I’m planning to get another pair soon. They shipped right away too!

About

Modern + Traditional = Newfangled

Somewhere between traditional values and modern living is a space where I create jewelry.
Here I work with tiny seed beads to quench my creative spirit and make jewelry with satisfying texture, unexpected color, and clever design.

Additional policies and FAQs
I aim to use good quality beads and findings. I use glass, metal, and stones for beads. For thread, I use specialty beading thread such as One-G brand or Fireline (fishing line) depending on the design and type of jewelry. I use quality metal findings such as 14/20 gold filled, sterling silver, niobium, and copper. I also use base metal findings to provide a wide variety of color and style for my jewelry, including gold-plated, brass-plated, black-plated, and gunmetal-plated base metal.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

All my items are shipped in a gift box, and a gift note can be added at no additional cost. Please indicate the custom message when making a purchase, and I will add it with the jewelry.

Sizing details

All items posted include the sizing dimensions in either centimeters or inches. Each dimension is specifically chosen, therefore custom sizing for my listed items is not available.

Care instructions

Most of my beads are made of glass or crystals, and the findings are either gold filled, sterling silver, or niobium. Care should be taken to not drop the jewelry on hard surfaces to avoid breaking the beads. In addition, jewelry should not be exposed to water. Sterling silver findings can be brightened using various methods common to sterling silver cleaning.

Wholesale availability

I do not offer wholesale opportunities for my items.

Custom and personalized orders

My work is very meticulous and time intensive. I do custom work on a limited basis in order to pursue all aspects of running my business and to bring fresh new designs to my customers.
