Q&A with Becklaces!

What is your craft all about?
Becklaces are necklaces (and more!) by me, Becky. I create modern and relevant jewelry from old and sometimes unexpected items.

What inspires you to make what you make?
Currently I am inspired by common materials like cardboard boxes, magazines, and pretty papers. I like the idea of transforming these everyday objects into unique, colorful, textural, and affordable jewelry.

What is your favorite piece/product you will have with you at the Handmade Mart?
I am excited about my bracelets - I work as an artist for a decorative painting company, and we use a lot of painter's tape. I salvage the empty rolls, dress them in fancy papers and gloss, and give them new life as bracelets!

Where can folks find your craft outside the Handmade Mart?
You can find Becklaces on etsy at

Find me at booth #32!
