I love taking recycled goods, donated and discarded items, and gorgeous beads to create new jewelry and accessories. I make vintage-inspired jewelry with charms and findings from eras gone by. I also repurpose modern fabrics for my fabric brooches and pins. I believe that simple items can be used to make something extraordinarily beautiful and that's what I try to accomplish with my Etsy shop.

I'm a proud member of two Etsy teams, the NC Triangle Etsy Street Team and the Queer Team. Please see the Queer Team's collective shop to benefit charity and check out the pendant I donated: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=39016257.

I also write a blog which you can find at ellesbeads.blogspot.com. The Elle's Beads Blog is a resource for both customers and fellow artisans alike. I review major fashion trends and artisan resources, as well as keep readers up-to-date on where I'm selling and what I'm creating.
