Every Bead Tells a Story
Do you have “bead madness”? Do Jade, Carnelian, Lapis, Amethyst, Black Onyx, Tiger Eye…Rose Quartz, Amber, Garnet, Moonstone, Malachite, and Silver…conjure up ancient trade routes…a connection to peoples all over the world?
Maybe you’ve never thought about beads in this way…you just love their endless colours, textures, sparkle and shine.
Connie Wright’s one-of-a-kind pins and necklaces link us to this most essential universal human need…the desire to adorn ourselves…to make ourselves special…beautiful.
Carved, faceted, smooth, rough, large or small…beads have been telling their stories for over 30,000 years!
Every winter Connie personally seeks out new and unusual beads in the marketplaces of Asia to add to her collection. Each and every bead is made by hand…from tiny carved jade fish and exquisite cloisonné beads of China to the countless silver designs from Bali and Thailand.
“They’re all unique and beautiful and interesting. I just love putting them together…sometimes they talk to me. I know when it’s working … they just ‘happen’ on their own.”
