Hi! My name is Tracy Kingery, and I have been designing and creating beaded jewelry and accessories for 18+ years, by hand. I love working with bright, juicy colors, and creating delightful designs. I only make one of everything – if you own it, you’re the only one who does. It makes every hand-crafted piece different and special, just like the wearer, reveals their individuality, and gives their outfits that perfect finishing touch.
I began my jewelry career when I was gifted with a treasure trove of beads from a dear friend. As I learned to make jewelry, I felt challenged to use as many of these beads as I could and find new ways to make jewelry and accessories. There is something about texture, color, and shape, the patterns and the possibilities, that continues to bring me back to the work table, something that tells me that there’s more where all the others came from, and I continually dig deep into my imagination to bring those designs to life. Not to mention how much I love shiny things!
I am also a Beadstar! In 2010, I won 2nd Place, Glass category, from BeadStar Magazine, with this floral beaded charm bracelet:
In the summer of 2016, this Summertime Wrap Bracelet was published in Stringing Magazine:
It had always been my dream to get published in that magazine - It started right publishing around the same time I began beading, it was an endless source of education and inspiration for me, and I was thrilled to be part of it!
I made all the pieces you see here on the site, and there is much more to come, I have so many design ideas still to be made and shared! Please let me know if you'd like a special one-of-a-kind piece made just for you. Feel free to contact me with questions or ideas - I love to talk about jewelry!
