Julie Siegmund"I am intrigued by beads. For centuries, most every culture has produced beads for different purposes from a variety of locally-available materials. Beads have rich historical and sociological significance to complement their great beauty and decorative value. In my work, I strive to combine old and new, spanning continents and time to create unusual, wearable art that takes on new meaning for its wearer. I enjoy exploring different bead sources, materials, textures and colors. Thus far, I have focused on natural stones, new and vintage glass, steel-cut beads from the 19th century and silver. The pieces in this gallery are representative of my work, though I'm constantly creating new designs, too."

Vintage seed beads and glassVintage seed beads and glass
These late 19th century limited-availability French steel-cut seed beads and 1920s Austrian silver seed beads are most well-known for their use in the hand-beaded purses and dresses that were in fashion from about 1900 through the 1920s. These faceted and charmingly weighted metal beads handsomely separate the unusual mid-20th century glass from Japan, Austria and West Germany.
