What is unique about Design by Sandi? Beautiful designs, quality material, and craftsmanship. Your ability to own a one of a kind, or as close as you can get to it, piece of jewelry. Made to your order. At affordable prices. That's unique!
Beading is my labor of love. I pick designs that are challenging and fun to make. Design by Sandi isn't really a business. It's more about doing something I like and friends.
Is Design by Sandi good value? Yes! When I started beading I decided I would only make pieces I would be proud to wear. That left out cheap materials and tacky designs. I love Swarovski and pick patterns that highlight the beauty of these more expensive crystals. Bead weaving takes time and craftsmanship and those are in every piece you see.
You can't do this in the real world. Things have to be left out to meet price points. You don't have to accept that. You can have quality hand crafted jewelry with nothing left out. I take pride in what I make. You can take pride in what you wear and give!
Beautiful designs, quality materials, reasonable prices, free standard shipping on orders over $25, and Design by Sandi spells exceptional value!

The "Add to

order precisely what you want, limited only be material availability!
Pick your designs, colors, sizes, clasps and ear wires. Sandi will hand
craft it for you. That's custom!
It takes longer and costs a bit more (I have to get materials
they cost more in small quantities), but this is the best way
go if you have exacting needs.

carefully. I do have a return policy but there is a 50% non-refundable

How can a Custom
Order help me if I am not going to a wedding? Almost any
way you want! Let's say you need an inexpensive gift for a teacher or
two. A pair of ear rings is very affordable. The crystal is
Swarovski, ear wires Sterling Silver or gold filled. Order
them in school
colors. You have a perfect gift: something that can't be found in any
store, affordable, and they will love it! Custom Order gives
flexibility you never had before, limited only by your imagination!
How can I feel
more comfortable before placing a Custom Order? There is
an element of risk in dealing with someone you don't know about
something you can't see and handle. Especially when it's important. The
best way I know is to encourage you to get get to know me and become
familiar with my work. Find something you like. It doesn't have to be
expensive. Maybe a pair of earrings or a necklace. When
you see the materials and workmanship in your
hand, you will feel much more comfortable placing a Custom Order.
