MadDesigns is Open

We're trying a new business model and we hope you will like it.  I really really want to continue to share my designs with you, but carrying a large inventory or multiple color ways was starting to feel overwhelming with the amount of airstream traveling that we have planned.

I'd like to be able to pick one favorite kit, pull out the drawer, take piece part inventory, order necessary supplies and kit up a few.  So that's what we're going to try.  The website has been re-designed to support this model, so what you will see it four pretty photos of what is currently available for sale.  To see the current offerings, click here.

When the inventory is gone we'll add a new kit for sale.  With just four kits to manage we can even take the inventory with us while traveling and ship it from where ever we happen to be.  Some things may be available again and some will not.  For example in the dramatic La Navette black bracelet, both the dark red coral crystal and the Sphinx navette fancy stone have been discontinued.  Sadly the same is true for the light green pearls in Santa Lucia.  The Gold Chrysolite Duomos is brand new and will likely be available again but the current inventory is all there is right now.  

Your order will also include a pretty little bag of beads from my studio.  There may be bead soup (although I know that could make some of you shudder while others will be elated!) or a few sparkly beads for you to create with.

The store will remain open with new things being added all the time.  I'll primarily use Facebook to let you know when new inventory is being featured.  Check back often to see if your favorite is here!

Thank you for your support as we transition to our dream of more travel.  Be assured the beads always travel with me and I have made many of my favorite designs while on the road!
