About R&D Beads


Hello Jewelry Lovers! I am a proud wife and mother of two who has always had a passion for handcrafted items and art. As my girls grew up, I worked in various areas of volunteering and retail. I realized there was a need for a chic, high value, affordable, jewelry line. I took my inspiration and creativity from beautiful beads and came up with a lifestyle brand that one could wear from day into night.



Where in the world are R&D handmade beads? Making a fashion statement on another continent? The new buzz at the club or office? Or vacation with family at the lake house? Share your favorite piece with us and be sure to check out our R & D Friends gallery. This gallery showcases various pieces that have been worn both casual and dressed up from day into night. Take a look!
