My name is Nicole and I have always been creative; dabbling in everything from sketching, jewelry making, scrapbooking, floral arranging, to digital design - all of which I incorporated into my own wedding over 9yrs ago. I am a thirty something mom who enjoys all types of crafting. I have a Business Degree from the University of Baltimore which I rely on the help effectively run my licensed business.
I am self-taught and have a nice, clean, smoke free
home studio in Fenwick Island, DE.
Back story...When my daughter Sophia was born 7yrs ago, as babies do, she pulled on not only my jewelry but everyone else's that held her. I began repairing jewelry, which led into revamping and modifying jewelry, and eventually
Over the years I have evolved into other areas of unique accessories. I use my digital design and other crafting experience to create personalized and themed items; in a multitude of settings including fun bottle caps to men’s cuff links. I also enjoy using fabric and feathers to create fun hair accessories like boutique bows and fascinators.
I have been accepted and participated in juried fine art shows such as The Dewey Arts Fest (Dewey Beach, DE) and Art's Alive (Ocean City, MD) as well as many indoor and outdoor craft shows of all sizes.
I love sharing the fun of beading with people of all ages
so I offer Beading Parties. Please check out the
“Parties” tab for more details. I am also a Bead Corner™ Design Academy Certified Instructor and have
taught classes at Michael's Arts and Crafts since 2013.
Remember, I have a wide range of accessories you need to give your outfits that distinctive look. And don't forget, Sweetie Beads makes a perfect gift for that special someone.
