Shopping for friends isn’t always the easiest of tasks. Everyone has different tastes in what they like and dislike. Sometimes it is similar to my own, and some of them are the complete opposite. One of my closest friends is a transplant from California. With her laid back and earthy style, I figured she would be easy to shop for this holiday season. That is until I discovered Bev’s Beadz… So what made this task suddenly so difficult? There were just too many amazing pieces of jewelry, how would I be able to pick and choose just one piece to give her?!?
Bev’s Beadz is described as a “past-life recreation in jewelry”, specializing in antique Trade beads. Beverly Moore, the artist behind Bev’s Beadz describes the process of designing, creating, and wearing her jewelry as her passion. Yes, all items are designed and handmade by Bev! Inspired by the Southwest, she is drawn to rich desert shades, colors, and materials such as Turquoise, Lapis, Coral, Jasper, Amber, metals, beads of wood, bone, and glass. Her pieces feature hand-sculpted beads and are rarely ever the same or symmetric. This makes them not only truly unique, but truly personal!
Jewelry for both men and women are available in her line. For the past two years, her line has been featured among the models of Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition. Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler wore Bev’x Beadz while appearing on American Idol. Miami Shoot has also featured this one of a kind jewelry across their pages.
