About Me

My name is Nancy Riley and I welcome you to my world of seed bead joy!  If you love unique, one-of-a-kind, meticulously handwoven jewelry, infused with the joy I have in creating them, you'll enjoy browsing for the piece that speaks to you.

  I started making jewelry in 2017 and fell in love with this centuries old art of making jewelry.  You may have purchased from me at the many Arts and Crafts Fairs through out Connecticut I've attended. Now you can find String of Joy online and shop at your convenience.

I use the finest Japanese and Czech glass beads as well as locally handblown beads.  Each bead is individually picked up and skillfully stitched in layers to create beautiful, handcrafted pieces of jewelry.  The most intricate pieces can take 12 hours to create and contain over 4,000 beads.

You're invited to come back often because my inventory is always changing.  If you would like a particular color and/or design please contact me.  I would love to custom design a piece just right for you!
