Sarah and Kayla Beardslee are Mother and Daughter jewelry designers. They have been designing all of their hand-made items for 8 years, using a wide variety of mediums, including glass, paper, metal, and clay. The high-quality beads come from the 4 corners of the world, which help to create pieces that invoke beauty, amazement, and whimsy. They enjoy learning new techniques, and constantly coming up with new designs. Kayla learned how to design jewelry in an after school program about 8 years ago, and taught Sarah how to design as well. Since then, their designs have evolved and grown.
They are active members of the Medford Arts Center (Sarah is the current President), as well as Bead Designer International, where Sarah is Co-Programming chair.
Their jewelry has been shown at the West Medford Open Studios for many years, the Arlington Open Studios, as well as many art fairs in the area, including Malden, Medford, Arlington and Lynnfield. Their jewelry has been carried in shops in Medford, Boston, Somerville, Salem and Maynard.
Sarah & Kayla look forward to participating in the West Medford Open Studios for their 7th year! To see some of their designs, visit their website, www.BeadsbyBeardslee.com, and their facebook page, www.facebook.com/BeadsbyBeardslee.
