Thebeadedlily- handmade jewelry that connects

Handmade Store: thebeadedlily

Connect to the thread of artistic personal adornment anchored in humanity's origins with thebeadedlily's colorful, inspired collection of handcrafted jewelry.

Handcrafted jewelry is collaborative and connective. It connects the maker of the beads, with the maker of the piece, with the person who chooses that piece to say something about themselves, even through time and space.

--a short personal history--
I'm a self-taught artist in the Deep South near Savannah Georgia. When I'm not working I'm reading or drinking something hot while I cuddle my furred or feathered friends. Whatever I'm doing I carry with me a love of the art of personal adornment, a fascination with its history and an anticipation of its future.

I fell in love with beads during a crisis. The beadbox was therapy and since then I've made this my full-time job and branched from strung pieces into beadweaving and wire-working. I'm ever intrigued by what adornment evokes in us and says about us.

thebeadedlily is a play on the phrase 'guild the lily', meaning 'to adorn unnecessarily' (isn't all adornment unnecessary? and yet somehow vital to our mental well-being?) and my favorite medium-- beads-- with a reference to my personal identity in the form of my middle name.

I believe:
Conformity and uniformity are overrated.
Less is less.
The individual and ornamental has inherent value.

--my work--.
-Stringing is my first love and is all about the beads.
-Beadweaving is my labor intensive celebration of the art of creating and wearing jewelry.
-Wirework is my exploration of the most ancient forms of jewelry.
