MAK Designs' Custom Hand Made Beaded Jewelry: Welcome!

MAK Designs' Custom Hand Made Beaded Jewelry: Welcome!

Friday, August 1, 2008


Welcome to my Blog!

I began my beading journey at the tender young age of 14. Twenty-six years later my love for making jewelry resurfaced. I've used beads in my collection that I've moved and stored over the years. Some of my beads originate from vintage pieces of jewelry that are carefully and lovingly dismantled, then they are used in "new" pieces created only by me.

Schooled as a graphic artist and illustrator I became charmed once again creating one of a kind beaded and lapidary pieces in 2002. I create all my work in my home studio in Jamestown, North Carolina.

My jewelry is handmade, and of my own designs. I think "fun" and "spontaneity" are reflected in my designs. I believe in the healing properties of gemstones which is why I like working with natural components. Materials used are subject to availability. I do not make the same thing twice, they might look similar but, are different variations. You can be sure that the piece you purchase is unique. I use the best quality sterling silver beads and findings. Great care is taken to ensure that each piece is made to become a treasured favorite.
