One of you shall be the best accessorized damsel of the next masquerade ball you attend. Andrea Adams of Beadmask is giving away a $30 gift card to spend on her beautiful bead and leather art. Her Etsy shop glitters with beaded cabochon jewelry and gleams with sculpted leather masks, crowns, hair sticks and barrettes.
Andrea is a second generation artisan living in Seattle. She was fortunate to learn from her father, who also supported his family through his art. The amazing work she creates now is the culmination of many years spent honing her skills and developing a distinctive style. Despite working with beads and leather for so long, her favorite materials still intrigue her. She keeps dreaming up projects that are just beyond the scope of her expertise, which motivates her to learn new techniques. This creative process helps her to find her center, and also brightens the world with her whimsical creations.
