Beadie Beads Book Jewelry
Adrianne’s product is a handmade bookmark called BookJewelry which she created over 14 years ago. She uses a variety of hand selected beads made from crystal, glass, ceramic, metal, wood and other natural materials and add them to leather cord or tigertail beading cord. Most of the time she attachs a charm to one end as an accent.
PRICE: Bookjewelry are priced starting at $12 each which includes either a velvet pouch or a velvet box.
Adrianne was fortunate to have an older sister who taught her how to read before she entered kindergarten. Decades later and still very much an avid reader, she continued to pour through several books over the course of a month. One day in the spring of 1999, she was reading a novel and had to put the book down to attend to something and couldn’t find her paper bookmark but had a broken gold chain that needed repair sitting on the table next to her. She placed that in the book… and had an AHA moment.
For several weeks following that serendipitous discovery Adrianne continued to tryout different materials to re-engineer and test multiple prototypes of what she started calling BookJewelry until she was 100% happy with the design. Then she tested out several packaging options in order to put an elegant finish to her product.
Today, the supplies that she use to create and design her Beadie Beads BookJewelry are incredibly extensive with literally thousands of beads, hundreds of charms and accents along with an amazing collection of jewelry making tools. She continues to test out new beading materials and tools always looking for the best quality and most efficient product for my BookJewelry, and is always adding to her bead and charm supply in order to keep things fresh and fun for her customers.
