About BeadworkBySmileyKit

Welcome to BeadworkBySmileyKit a place where smiles and creativity come together, bringing you beautiful handmade bead loom bracelets and woven jewelry pieces and more.

As a young girl, I started playing around with beads, and that is when I discovered that I really loved working with my hands. The love for my beadwork began and the creativity just flowed naturally. As I an adult I had to put my beadwork aside when I joined the Navy. Upon returning stateside after 5 1/2 yrs, I turned back to my love of beading and creating. Working with my beads is not only fun, but also a very cathartic creative process for me!

Upon opening my Etsy shop in 2010, I have evolved my business by using seed beads, swarovski crystals, rondells, and other different media to create my work and am loving it! Having the same love for art as I do and a great eye for color, my daughter Kitten came into the business in 2012. Working closely together, we are always coming up with new concepts, color combinations and design ideas for our jewelry.

I get asked all the time, how I came up with my shop name, BeadworkBySmileyKit. Well, Smiley came from my fabulous and supportive hubby, when we were dating I didn't smile much, so he would tease me and try to get me to smile and the name stuck! Kit, came from my daughter’s nickname kitten, deriving itself from her amazing love for cats, so we shortened it and came up with Kit.
