I love to create with beads because of the many colors, materials, shapes, and sizes. Add to this the many connectors, settings, metals, and possible outcomes.
I came to beading late in life. I had always been fascinated with stone beads (with their many natural colors) and wanted to start beading many years ago, but it was hard to find bead shops.
I was inspired one day when we came across a bead shop while on vacation and stopped in. What I did not expect was that my husband, Richard, would also be inspired.
We discovered so many types of beads that we had no idea existed: Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones (Hematite fascinates me), seed beads, metals, acrylics, and so many more! They come as bicones, flats, rounds, large, small…so many sizes and shapes WOW. We were hooked!
I hope you enjoy our pieces as much as we enjoyed creating them.

I want to thank you for visiting our website, Gilded Beader LLC. We are in Mount Vernon, Washington, but only sell our creations online and at person-to-person venues when permitted.

We started beading in 2015. Both my husband, Dick, and I got bit by the bug when we walked into our first bead store. I had always wanted to create my own semi-precious gemstone jewelry. We also work with Swarovski Crystals, glass, and less expensive components like plastic and acrylic. Other types of beaded items, such as floral arrangements, hair accessories, and sun catchers are available.
We hope you enjoy our jewelry as much as we enjoy making them.
