Belle Armoire Jewelry Feature Article!

I’m thrilled to share that my work is included in Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine’s Spring 2022 issue, hitting the stands today!

This article showcases my range of leather peacock feather jewelry and accessories, inspired by my friend Mahala back in 2010. These remain some of my favorite designs to create and expand upon, and I’m very thankful for the opportunity to share this story.

As with all of the publications by Stampington & Company, Belle Armoire Jewelry is an exceptionally beautiful and well curated magazine. I’m honored to work with them again, and I look forward to future opportunities.

Made to Order Costume Designs Closing 9/15

Heads up! My “Made to Order” costume designs will be de-listed on Wednesday September 15th. After that, my Halloween offerings will be limited to options that are “Ready to Ship”. I may or may not make these designs available for order again after Halloween – it just depends on how crazy my order queue gets (it’s been pretty crazy, if that’s any indicator).⠀

So if you’ve been planning to order one of these designs, now’s the time! ⠀

I will have a few more one of a kind + ready made offerings before the end of the spooky season. I strongly encourage you to order your costume items early this year.⠀

August Birthstone Earrings

gemstone and sterling silver dangle earrings with August birthstone

Peridot is the traditional birthstone for August, and a lovely birthday gift for your August born Leo and Virgo friends!⠀

Across time and culture, peridot has been linked to the sun and nature. In Ancient Egypt, peridot was known as “the gem of the sun”. It was believed to drive away nightmares and darkness, bringing happiness and energy to the owner. In Hawaiian folklore, it is said that peridot symbolizes tears of the fire goddess Pele.

I’ve recently added these faceted peridot birthstone earrings to the site, along with styles for each month of the year.

Wild Hairs

My mom has been sending old photos. Here’s one of my daughter and me from 25-ish years ago. Based on her expression and the hair clip in her hand, I’m betting that I’d just chased her down to try to corral those wild hairs. It was a common occurrence back then 😂⠀

This child came in to the world with a full dark mane, and I just loved making her pretty little hair clips. I’d been making my own hair accessories long before she was born. Today she’s in grad school, and my once dark hair is now salt and pepper (extra salty). All these years later, and I’m still making barrettes for our wild hairs…

Red Rose Hair Slide Photos & Review

A client shared these gorgeous photos over the weekend, along with this stellar review:

“I have a LOT of hair. Because of this, it’s really difficult for me to find a hair slide that does the job and does it durably. The ones that Andrea makes at Beadmask are my go-to when I need something pretty that will also hold up all day. I have been able to use these hair-slides for all-day style without hair gels or sprays. Most other hair accessories I’ve tried break under the tension, or cause my bun to collapse. Not so with Beadmask! I recommend the longer sticks for long hair like mine.” 

My heartfelt thanks to  @thegurlwhodoesboth (model) and  @andrewjosiah206 (photographer)  for sharing these wonderful images & review of my red rose hair slides!

Hail Spring!

Hail Spring! Today is the vernal equinox, signaling the first day of spring. 

As an avid gardener, I’m excited for warmer weather, planting season, colorful flowers, and butterflies! As an extreme allergy sufferer, I’m less than excited about the next few weeks of alternating between zombie mode (unmedicated) and total spazz (whacked out on allergy meds) < ~ Please bear with me there.

What are you looking forward to this season?

A Blast From the Past

Cleared out an old file cabinet over the weekend, and found these old scans (yes, scans!) of my barrettes and bags from the mid – late 90’s! It tickled me to notice how much my style has changed over time, as well as what’s remained constant. I’m still working in beads, leather and gemstones. And I’m still in love with color and nature.

It’s been ages since I’ve done those fringed buckskin bags and bead embroidered animals. I’ve been thinking about how to circle back on both styles, so it was great timing to find these pics now. I’d love to recycle some of these elements in to my current style.
