We invite you to visit the entire family of Beaded Lily websites!
Over the years we've created a number of websites to sell our various handmade products and promote our classes. Below you will find site descriptions and direct links to the sites themselves. All of the websites listed below were created and are maintained by Tim James.
Beads, beading supplies and Italian ribbons. First and foremost the BeadedLily site is home to our own line of handmade glass beads created here in our Florence glass studio. Also quite popular among jewelry designers both here and abroad is our Italian Tubular Wire Mesh Ribbon. In addition you will find an interesting assortment of items ranging from Venetian pendants and Swarovski crystal to quality findings and lamp working supplies.
One-of-a-kind bracelets, necklaces & other items featuring our own handmade beads. Originally our line of hand-crafted, beaded jewelry was included as part of our BeadedLily site. However, we found that the individual items were getting a bit lost in the shuffle. The Beaded Lily Designs site allows for focus on the beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces themselves.
Your source in Italy for this endlessly versatile product. Coated in enamel and lacquered to prevent color change, this Italian product is water proof, heat resistant and nickel free. It can be used as a ribbon to support a pendant, as a tube with beads carefully inserted inside it or it can be fluffed out to nearly 3 times its original size, creating beautiful swirls and waves. It can be twisted, knotted and pulled into just about any shape. Weave wire into it, attach crystals... And this versatile product is certainly not limited to just jewelry design. Think of the possibilities for scrap booking, card making, polymer clay projects (Bake it right in!) ... The possibilities are truly endless!
Handmade Pandora-Style Beads & Jewelry For An Endless Variety Of Possibilities. We are the manufacturer and distributor of this Pandora-style bead and jewelry line - Compare prices with other distributors of handmade large-hole beads and see the difference! Our prices are generally 50% less (or better).
Retail Store - Florence, Italy. Join us for a truly unique experience! Our Working Studio is a wonderful environment in which to shop, take a class, create a piece of jewelry or just hang out! Throughout the day you'll see glass beads being made at the torch and jewelry created using those beads.
Beaded Lily Radio: Music to bead by! Music has always been a major source of inspiration and joy for us, both at home and in the bead studio. As those of you who have visited us in person know, our shop/studio is a very personal place with a relaxed, creative atmosphere. We created this site to share our favorite music playlists with people, no matter where on the planet they happened to be :)
