Product was made super quickly and though the delivery was long (can't help it because it had to travel continents!), everything else was great! Packaged really snugly, so that's a plus. I had hoped the material on the layers would be slightly thicker, but it's still great overall. Craftsmanship was really precise too.

This key chain looks fantastic, and it's stamped on both sides!!! I love the craftsmenship and creativity that went into this. It's also nice to have the chance to put your own saying...to make it extra special. Customer service is crazy good, Lori is right on top of asking questions and making suggestions...truly appreciated by any craftsman!!! Thanks so much!!

Love the key chains! I wanted a custom order and Lori delivered just what I asked for!! I got a date put on the back of both and added a small heart design stamped on the front after the text on one of the key chains. They turned out perfectly! Communication was prompt, they were shipped quickly and are high quality. I am very pleased with my purchase. Thanks Lori!

I bought the bracelet for my boyfriend's birthday, which was yesterday. He loves it! It's very well made, fits him perfectly, and is unlike any other bracelet he owns. I let Lori know when I ordered it that it was for his birthday on 5/4, and she made sure to process the order quickly so that I got it in time.

Risky Beads

About Me:

My interest in jewelry making began by accident. Years ago, a friend of mine was in town, and we decided to go spend a beautiful October day in Chapel Hill, NC, home of my alma mater. We ate lunch and then wandered into a bead store. We knew nothing about making jewelry save what we thought we knew. We spent over three hours in that store, drove the thirty minutes back home, and decided to start making all of the marvelous things we’d pictured in our heads. Even though we had no clue what we were doing, we had an absolute blast. The fruits of our labors that day weren’t exactly phenomenal, but we were utterly stoked about the very real chance of reaching our delusional potential. We went back to that store the next day. My friend flew home that Sunday, satisfied with her crafty indulgence. But I wasn’t. I kept going. And going. And going. Risky Beads, accessories with issues, started out as stories told through bead work and has morphed into a hand stamping business with custom gifts for literally everyone on your list from the teacher to your family members and your friends and coaches!
