Artist Statement

Sarah Beardslee has been creating beaded jewelry and gifts for the last 8 years.. She uses 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, whimsy, and healing. . She enjoys learning new techniques, challenging herself, and constantly coming up with new designs. Her designs have evolved and grown over the last 8 years. The beaded designs are made into necklaces, bracelets, rings, brooches, key chains, earrings, hair adornments, yads (Torah pointers), pens, and styluses.

Sarah is the President of the Medford Arts Center, as well as a member of Bead Designer International (the New England Bead Society).

Her jewelry has been shown at the West Medford Open Studios, the Arlington Open Studios, as well as many art fairs in the area, including Malden, Medford, Arlington and Lynnfield. Her jewelry has been carried in shops and galleries in Medford, Boston, Somerville, Salem, Maynard, Brookline, and Peabody.
