Summer Tribal Trends

  • Jun 10 2014

No doubt about it, summer is starting to heat itself up. As June climbs up and in, people are pulling out their swim suits, beach towels, and sun hats for the occasion. Comfortable is in (horray!), and tribal designs are clinging to and sticking with us for yet another season.

It's no wonder, really.

The easy and causal designs make any outfit feel "cool" and relaxed. They set just the right mood for summer. The cross-hatching lines, modern shapes, and chevron designs feel confidently understated in a way that even the most sparkling of rhinestones cannot achieve. Something about the simple, native inspired pieces speak "calm" in a "despite everything that's going on" sort of way.

The above style board above features our vintage leather barrette and firework burst necklace designs. Both of which feature hand-woven Native American style beadwork on vintage deerskin leather, accompanied by wooden cylindrical beads for a layer of natural feel. (The barrette is made and ready-to-ship today, while the necklace is offered on a made-to-order basis.)

Tribal Leather Barrette
Buy here for $19.
Beaded Tribal Leather Necklace
Order here for $129.

Also included is our bead-loom created Blue Chevron Bracelet. It's multicolored shades of blue and brown wave along the length of your wrist to offer a design of calming serenity, while the glass beads feel cool to the touch of your skin. You'll be sure to get compliments the moment you step out with this accessory paired with your favorite indie attire.

Fresh Pink Pastel Style for Spring

  • May 1 2014

Spring is a softer season--perfect for light colors and bright pastels, lacy and flowy skirts and dresses, and placing flowers in our hair. Even if you still prefer your gray suit or white t-shirt and stone-washed jeans, I import you to add a touch of colored pearl earrings or a soft touch of pink via a barrette hair clip to reflect the hopeful mood of May.

Speaking of May - Mother's Day is just around the corner. If you haven't nabbed anything for Mom yet to show her how much your appreciate her (or at least to show her how well you preform your obligatory holiday duties as a daughter or son), you can get something from Megan's Beaded Designs for 20% off with coupon code MOMSDAY2014 until 5/11. Can't decide what she'll want? Opt for a gift card instead. Problem solved.

In the Media: Featured on Flourish and Thrive

  • Feb 10 2014

Flourish and Thrive Academy has featured me as a Spotlight Designer on their blog.

Megan Petersen Spotlight Designer

A brief story of what you do and why you do it.

I absolutely love creating unique pieces that my customers can wear to express themselves, or show off to start unlikely conversations. Growing up as a shy introvert myself, I’ve always leaned on my clothing and accessories as a means of standing out and getting noticed. It’s my goal to provide that same means for my customers.

How did you get into jewelry design?

My grandfather was into the Native American beadwork when I was young, and he passed on some pattern books and extra beads to me and my sister. I’ve been addicted ever since.


What makes your collection unique?

A lot of my jewelry lines are inspired by the fine art world. I strive to create truly unique pieces that not only stand out, but that are recognizable as part of my signature brand.

Light Pink Barrette

Radiant Orchid for 2014

  • Jan 3 2014

Pantone has announced the 2014 color of the year. And it's fabulous.

In honor of the glorious pink and purple mix, I created a modern, yet light and pretty necklace and earrings set of the same shade. This pair of earrings and neck wear don soft rose and deep, royal purple hued Delica beads, uniformly hand-stitched together into modern triangle pieces. Hanging in delicate loops between the triangles are vines of the same beads, ordinate with soft round pink stones.

To accompany the set for the following fashion shoot, I chose a rose band dress and a deep purple military jacket. Also present are burgundy open-toe heels with matching tights, and a pink barrette to hold my hair back (unseen.) The beadwork and silver-toned chain are all so light, I could barely tell I was wearing any jewelry at all. The pieces did, however, gloriously tie the whole outfit together. As all good accessories should.

For a limited time the necklace and earrings featured in this post are available for purchase from Megan's Beaded Designs.
