beauty + artistry
*** note: Because this collection is made from odds and ends, some materials are a bit of a mystery. Ergo the central wood bead is unknown.
A little about this collection:
Prayer beads meet love beads.
Born of play and a desire to make beauty from random odds and ends, what has emerged feels so soulful, both deeply personal and universal.
Made with beads that have made their way to me in all sorts of manner. From all corners of the globe. Trinkets from my travels. Gifts from friends. Secondhand treasure. Bits and bobs form broken pieces so well worn and well loved, they fell apart.
Inspired by prayer beads. Love beads of the sixties. A bohemian seventies aesthetic. Chokers from the nineties. A favorite necklace of my mom's.
A little connection to spirit.
A little love revolution.
Each piece is handcrafted with love to remind you of the magic within you + all around you.
