I am so glad you are here!

I’ve been a crafter and jewelry-maker for most of my life, believe it or not! Ever since I started my first business selling hand-painted barrettes when I was 12 years old, I fell in love with creating pieces that made others happy. I created Beadorable in 2003, when my daughter was a baby and I decided to stop teaching in order to be more present for her. As Beadorable grew, I continued to create jewelry that would give people of all ages a strong sense of comfort and connection— there’s no better feeling to me than knowing that a piece of jewelry I made can make someone feel closer to their loved ones, or to their own inner truth.

The name Beadorable came to me from a friend, and I love the way it makes people light up when they hear it. But now, as I and my company have developed and grown, I want my customers to be more than adorable. I want you to be love, be you, be truthful, and be connected.

Beadorable is now more than a little jewelry company. As the world moves more and more online, we’re creating a space that allows people to connect as they would at my booth at a craft show. When people would come to my craft booth, my goal was, above all, to make them feel seen and heard. I would always ask myself: how can I welcome someone here, learn about them, and sell them something so that they walk away feeling special and like they’ve found something with real meaning?

Now, I hope to help people feel those same feelings through my online store, and to do it with more than just jewelry. With gifts, accessories, artisan crafts, and specially-curated gift and subscription boxes, I want to inspire the members of my little online community to treat themselves and their loved ones to something that will make them feel comforted and connected. 

I have two marvelous kiddos, Sophie and Frankie. My heart bursts with pride when I think of these two! My daughter, a freshman at Utah and Frankie, a senior in high school have always been there to bring some extra fun, love and adventures to not just Beadorable, but to every day life!

Every year, my birthday is known as National Spaghetti Day! A tradition since I started choosing my favorite dinner for my birthday which was maybe at age 4. So for my entire life, I, along with friends and family have been celebrating this day with a plate of spaghetti.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I am a content and course junkie! When I'm not making jewelry, you can find me with my head down, taking notes, learning new things, and reading new books! This one was a beautiful gift from a dear friend and a treasured piece in my office! 

I have two silly dogs that spend more time with porcupine pokers in them than without; and they're always up for an adventure! When I'm not busy with Beadorable, I'm out hiking with my husband, Pete, and these crazy fun dogs.
