Hello R & D Friends!
I have always had a passion for handcrafted items and art. I grew up going to galleries and art shows with my father who taught me to enjoy all varieties of art. “Art is in the eye of the beholder” he would always say to me.
As my two girls grew up, I focused my energy on philanthropy, where I gained a passion for creating unique affordable gifts that help foundations differentiate their cause. Eventually I found a passion in fashion and design. I realized there was a need for high quality, unique jewelry at everyday value. A lifestyle brand that one could wear from day into night that is timeless and chic. It can accent other jewelry, if preferred. This is the niche I sought to fill and why R & D was created.
R & D Beads’s pieces are all individually handmade, with this inspiration and creativity in mind. Our goal is to create jewelry for the modern woman, stay at home mother and young adult. We hand select beautiful beads and produce the items that inspire us and you. We also gladly craft custom pieces for special occasions and of your own desire. Just contact us!
Welcome to R & D and enjoy our lifestyle of beads!
