Story Beads

What is a Story Bead? It is actually many uniformed glass beads woven together to create an image. So it is not one bead as it may sound, but many beads woven to make one image. You can almost think of it as a painting. Kathryn can bead a storyline, telling a tale or reflecting someones’ life in chronological order, with her beautiful Peyote stitching. The Story Beads can make up an entire necklace or be as simple as a single image and as small as 1 to 3 inches in length and put onto a sterling or gold collar, or necklace (see examples). They are timeless, beautiful and carry deep meaning for the person who’s story they tell. A story bead can be handed down for generations, and makes a great gift for a mother, wife, graduate, baby, bride or anyone who has a story to tell! Story Beads are custom ordered. Contact us for more information. To the best of our knowledge, Kathryn is the only person who offers a service like this.
