Carmen de Novais, founder and jewelry designer, started beading as a little girl in northeastern Brazil. Learning from her grandmother how to perforate and string seeds in the backyard, she delighted in making colorful, simple necklaces to wear and give to friends as gifts. Throughout her life, she has explored this traditional artform, constantly challenging herself to dream up new patterns, techniques and exciting color combinations.
