Grand Opening & Our Story

Posted by April Hamilton on

Welcome to Bead Brilliant!

This marks the grand opening of our online home. It is the beginning of a new chapter for our quickly growing business- one that we are very excited about as we continue to serve our awesome customers and grow our product lines.


Bead Brilliant launched in 2014. I was excited about sharing my unique hand-crafted creations with people throughout the world.

I've always been a creative person which is what led me to beading as a hobby. I found it so satisfying to dream up my own jewelry designs. It was from this hobby that my dream turned into a beautiful reality.

It's often through the challenges of life that we are faced with big choices about the future. A career is certainly one of those huge areas that can change life for the worse or better. As I faced challenges with my full-time career as a music teacher, and difficulties with my health, I began to see that Bead Brilliant was an opportunity to positively impact the lives of others, as well as positively change the direction of my own life. Thus began my journey in building my hand-crafted jewelry brand.

Bead Brilliant has given thousands of people the enjoyment of giving their loves ones unique customized gifts. Our ability to ship internationally to many countries has allowed a variety of people to enjoy bracelets, earrings, keychains, necklaces, and more. It has allowed me a flexible work schedule and the joy of being creative in my daily life. In 2015, I successfully transitioned to having Bead Brilliant as my full-time (and only) career. A dream come true!

Starting as a hobby gave me the insight and skills needed to begin a successful career. The first year was a wonderful time of learning and growing my business. I began with sharing my creations via etsy's online marketplace. People throughout the world began to find my creations, enjoy them, and leave helpful feedback. I discovered a wonderful niche that I am truly passionate about-- creating jewelry and accessories with a combination of beautiful crystal beads and adorable charms. I began with jewelry and expanded into accessories. I love creating new designs and offering a wide range of affordable and fun pieces.

My awesome husband, Siamese cat, and best friend are a vital part of my day-to-day life with Bead Brilliant. They are an amazing support. Jazz, my cat-son, is given credit for just looking cute and giving me another reason to smile!

As avid online shoppers, we understand the great value of unique products, quick processing time, great customer service, and affordability! We buy online multiple times each week and understand what a wonderful convenience it is. We also realize how challenging it can be to find personalized and customized gifts locally. The great part of shopping online is being able to find unique gifts for ourselves, friends, and family, that we otherwise would not be able to find.

We are here to help you in your online shopping experience. Many of our customers choose to shop with us so they can give their family and friends personal hand-crafted gifts. We offer a wide range of beads and the ability to personalize with birthstones and initials.

Fun Facts:

In addition to being creative, I am also musical. I enjoy piano, singing, and listening to music. I absolutely love animals, which accounts for why there are so many animal charms in our product lines. My son, the Siamese cat, is an absolute joy in my life. He squeaks quite cutely when he talks, which means he sounds more like a rat than he does a cat. He is a true gift from God. I am a believer in Jesus Christ and seek His guidance in every area of my life. I love God and seek to live in a way that glorifies Him. I believe that there is no greater joy than being in a personal relationship with God. To be loved by Him is better than life itself! (Psalm 63:3)
