About the Business The handcrafted, artisan jewelry from Megan’s Beaded Designs is a combination of art and fashion designed to express the unique and individualistic traits of its wearer. Each detailed piece of adornment has been created with the intent to show off one’s personality and attract the sort of attention of which garnishes compliments and starts invigorating conversations.

We refuse to settle for ordinary. We are unique, and we want to express that individuality with one-of-a-kind jewelry & accessories. We love art. We want to wear art. We want to wear art in our hair, around our necks and wrists, and have it dangling from our ears. We want to wear art on our fingers, in our locks, and around our ankles. We love wearing art. Be unique. Love art. Wear unique art. Be unique art.

About the Designer I believe the things that make us unique are what make us beautiful. We have so many hidden treasures within us, pining for the opportunity to express themselves, and so many people around us who would benefit if we would only allow our true selves to shine. Between growing up home-schooled and being highly introverted, I’ve always been “quiet.” This could be challenging because I knew I had loads of unique personality that I wished was easier for me to share with the world. After many years of feeling invisible, I found the easiest way to express my inner self to be through my sense of style. Even when I keep my mouth closed, my “loud” clothing and accessories ensure that I’m noticed. I design and hand make jewelry for people who don’t want to be invisible. Megan Petersen, Owner and Designer for Megan’s Beaded Designs

My pieces are for those who appreciate the details of handmade and the art of the process that goes into each one. I create with the art-inspired jewelry making skills I have learned from 20+ years of beading, supplemented with my degree in graphic design and fine art from Whitworth University. If you’re like me, then I imagine you love finding something that’s different. You don’t just dare to be unique, you strive for it. That’s where my one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories come in. I create works of art that unique women and men can actually wear. Each piece speaks for itself through its original composition, intricate details, comfortable wear-ability, and the compliments you’ll receive every time you put it on. I hope you enjoy the treasures you’ll find at MegansBeadedDesigns.com as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them for you. Each necklace, barrette, headband, bracelet, anklet, and pair of earrings I have constructed entirely by hand, with your distinct nature in mind. I strive to make you feel beautiful. Not in spite of what makes you special, but because of it.

Modern Triangle Necklace The Negative Space Collection $26

The Negative Space Collection Negative space refers to the absence of elements. In art composition, this is how we refer to the sections of a painting that do not contain subject matter, or the pocket of air between the handle and base of a tea cup sculpture. Negative space, in and of itself, can paint it’s own picture right along with the main focus of the artwork. The pieces in the Negative Space Collection at Megan’s Beaded Designs utilize this concept to allow the skin of the wearer to show through. These designs allow YOU to be part of the composition.

Wear the pieces of the Negative Space Collection to remind yourself to look at your negative experiences and emotions from another perspective. They can be seen as something beautiful if you are willing to look at them differently. A trying period of time makes for a lesson-filled experienced to be referenced later. A difficult day makes for a funny story come evening. An uneventful life is a boring life. A rocky path makes for a more interesting adventure. If you feel bad now, you’ll feel that much better once you get past your current turmoil. There are nuggets of hope amidst the turmoil, such as a helping hand, or an empathetic ear. Aren’t these things and people lovely? There is beauty to be found in pain. Allow yourself to feel it, fully, and acknowledge its depth before you press press past it. See the negative as an opportunity to view the positive more fully, and become a more appreciative person as a result.

There is negative and positive, and it can all be wonderful.
