Creating jewelry from beads is a very popular hobby and a great many people do it. I have been fortunate to work with a few who take it to a professional level. They introduce a design vision, a sourcing know how and a business sense that leaves the hobbyist behind. In some cases they are making or sourcing handcrafted glass art beads. In other cases they are sourcing beads and components from unique supplier that they combine with their personal artist style to create surprising pieces. The following are examples of photographs I have done of such work.
