There are those of us who like to mix into the crowd. Who follow trends religiously and don’t like to make waves. And then, there are those who march to the beat of their own drum and make their own fashion rules. Starry Night Beadworks is for the latter.
You’ll notice that the jewelry found here (or as they call it, the “collection of oddities”) are unlike anything you’ll find in a department store. Eclectic, one of a kind jewelry with a undeniable steampunk edge. Every piece gorgeously incorporates recycled antique pocket watch parts (averaging 100 years old) and/or natural stones.
You’ll also notice something that you wouldn’t expect to accompany an original, hand crafted piece of art – the pieces are extremely affordable! For example, necklaces average around $35.
The artist will work with you to develop a custom piece at no extra charge, so don’t be discouraged by the amount of “sold” signs you see on the site. Use them for inspiration. Pick and choose different elements, custom crafting a piece of jewelry that is decidedly you. All you need to do to initiate a custom process is send an email via the “Contact Me” section of the site and the artist promises to reply within 48 hours or less. Plus, she can usually make a piece within a day (so there is still time for the holidays!)
Speaking of the holidays, if you happen to be in the Minneapolis area, you can find Starry Night Beadworks in 2 locations: Gaviidae Commons, Thursdays 10am-6pm until Christmas, (651 Nicollet Ave, Downtown Minneapolis) and at Live Laugh Love, Saturday December 11th, 12pm-3pm, (5019 France Ave S, South Minneapolis).
But whether you visit in person, or email through the site, you will be one step closer to owning an uncommon piece of jewelry. A piece that draws upon the past to create something modern, wonderful, and unlike anything else.
