Inspiration for the jewelry I make at Beeman Jewelry Design begins with the material I have before me. Large, tumbled stones, faceted stones, polished stones – they all have an individual quality that should be considered. The use of spacers is important as it sets off the stone material to best advantage. When I find materials to use, I know at the time I acquire them that I will create something with 3 strands or a pendant or a strand of stones. I always seek the very best quality I can find and make just one piece with those materials, so you will never see the necklace on another person if you are wearing it yourself. The joy of making jewelry is a quality that I hope transfers to the buyer so they can feel good by owning and wearing what I create.
