Mortira vanPelt, Inspirational Beading

Mortira vanPelt, Jewelry DesignerMortira is a self-taught beader and jewelry designer. Her bead journey began sometime before age 10 with simple bead embroidery projects, like a felt coin purse with beaded cherries. From there, she dabbled with the usual suspects - macramé friendship bracelets, pony beads, wire wrapping, and even hot glue. Over the years, her obsession with beads grew, evolved, and finally came to a boiling point when she discovered off-loom bead weaving in 2006. It was love at first sight.

With a focus on glass and natural materials, Mortira searches for ways to combine ancient and primitive themes with modern materials and beadwork techniques, while constantly striving to make pieces that are sustainably and ethically sourced. In addition to creating jewelry, she also enjoys sharing ideas, techniques, and all the trials and triumphs of beadwork with other beaders and jewelry lovers. Her Inspirational Beading blog began as a creative outlet and has evolved into a place where artists can discover new ways to combine materials, colors, and techniques.
