I am a self-taught jewelry designer of beaded jewelry and accessories, with a real passion for making people feel special when they wear my pieces. Since I don't duplicate my work, no two people are ever wearing the same piece. I simply make it my mission to encapsulate my customers' desire to make their own statement through the jewelry they purchase.
For more than a decade, I have been hand-selecting high quality, expressive and colorful beads and components, from around the world. When customers have their own ideas of what they'd like to buy and/or give, but don't see anything in my SHOP, they can place a Special Order to have a piece custom-made. We work together to make their vision a reality, emulating their memory through a one-of-a-kind wearable keepsake.
Since most of life's special moments deserve a commemorative and affordable piece of jewelry, it's important to choose a design that best compliments personality for whomever you're buying. Take the time to select a piece that fits the occasion: [birthday, anniversary, holiday, life milestone, Mother's Day, and beyond], through bead color, birthstone crystals, charms, or even special dated beads.
In addition to making signature pieces, I design an annual Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet, where proceeds go directly to cancer charities. Supporting this cause is extremely close to me, so I love sharing my affection for beautiful pink hued beads with each person who may also feel touched by this disease and wants to join me in the fight for a cure.
I love to share my artistry with others through interactive classes and workshops. So please stay tuned for upcoming demonstrations and simple tutorials that you can enjoy making a piece of jewelry yourself. I'll soon be adding a clickable workshop button to my website.
Thank you for visiting Charming Bead to discover your next thoughtful, handcrafted works of beauty, that you will proudly wear or share with others for many years to come.
