In 2011, I made a conscious decision to engage in an educational program that provided the opportunity to acquire the skill set and foundation to initiate a career in the field of jewelry design and creation. I desired a program founded on the synergistic reflection of symmetry, motion, element integration, and heightened utilization of color harmony and/or divergence. I intensely reviewed all learning opportunities available and selected, Melanie Silverman, owner of Beadstringers to facilitate my quest. Ms. Silverman's perfected skills, inspirational, intriguing designs and unique talent in the combination of elements are a vision of beauty. An advanced level professional, Ms. Silverman has the ability to reduce complex techniques to their simplest level and enable students to absorb and utilize, a step by step, process that maximizes the inherent talents of design that lie within all of us. Ms. Silverman, a highly intelligent, experienced artist, with a broad based background in Metallurgy, design development and execution, provided the opportunity to learn highly complex, techniques that enabled me to develop a skill set that is enabling As a result, I have developed a design style that is unique and appreciated by my clients. Additionally, her expanded knowledge of premium, quality gemstones produces an astounding haven of design inventory available only at Beadstringers. Angela Joyce
While living in the Littleton area I got interested in making jewelry & chose Beadstringers as my jewelry supplier. Melanie, Evan & their staff were great to work with. Their knowledge, ability to get whatever supplies I needed along with the great pricing was what kept me going back. Now that I have moved to Florida, I miss the the availability of supplies. I have visited all of the bead stores around (and there are 6 in the immediate area),and have found it to be very difficult finding the supplies that I want for my "creation's". So I find myself calling Melanie & Evan and placing orders. I know that I am always getting quality merchandise & the best pricing. Not to mention updates on the local area. Thanks Beadstringers! You keep me supplied with hours of relaxation. P.L. Walling
For the last three years, the company I work for in Atlanta, GA has allowed me to host a jewelry show. Each year Melanie has brought her beautiful, custom jewelry to sell & has donated a portion of the proceeds to the charity that our company supported that year; 2010 Wounded Warriors Project; 2011 Veterans Empowerment Organization; 2012 Charity Water. She also gives a percentage of sales to the hostess, ME, & I get to use that credit towards purchasing gorgeous jewelry for myself! Consider having your own jewelry party to earn some one-of-a-kind jewelry for yourself, as well as to raise some money for the charity of your choice!
