Are you looking for original, beautiful beaded jewellery which has been designed and crafted with care & attention

Beautiful and Exclusive Jewellery?

Are you looking for beautiful beaded jewellery which has been designed and crafted
with care & attention by an award winning artisan?  Designs you know you won’t see anywhere else.  All my designs (other than Bespoke work) are one of a kind (OOAK), so you can be confident knowing you are the proud owner of an original design.

A Source of Inspiration

I design and handcraft my original pieces at my home studio adjacent to the beautiful bush and wetlands of Bibra Lake Nature Reserve which is part of the much larger Beeliar Wetlands system.  The colours and textures of our wonderful Australian landscapes provide loads of inspiration for my designs as do the beads themselves. 

Quality Techniques

I use quality finishing techniques such as wire guardians to protect clasps and threads and crimp covers to offer a professional look, but also to reduce the sharp edges that a regular pressed crimp may offer.

I use quality finishing techniques such as wire guardians to protect clasps and threads and crimp covers to offer a professional look, but also to reduce the sharp edges that a regular pressed crimp may offer.

Pearls and softer gemstones are generally knotted onto silk or cord to provide a buffer between each bead which protects them from wear and tear.

My Guarantee

Delighting customers and building a base of trust are priorities of my business, therefore I offer efficient service, well-crafted designs and a 12-month guarantee on all original designs and repairs or remodelling.  This enables you to relax and buy from me with confidence.

My beadwork can be purchased from the website, Facebook, Instagram, local markets or from the Studio (by appointment).

FREE Gift Wrapping

Gift wrapping is available on all purchases and there are several options. You can choose simple tissue paper or brown Kraft paper (like the picture) with or without a ribbon. I also have a range of “fancy” wrap that might be more what you are after, or you can request a particular theme – Mothers Day, Birthday, Christmas etc.

Little organza bags are a great way to gift and store jewellery and will continue to protect the piece while in storage or a jewellery box, while tins are another option.  These are a great idea for gifting some of my unisex or men’s range.  Again you have the options of ribbons and I have some lovely metallic stickers that look great on the lids

Gift cards are also available

Small gift cards can be included in your parcel

Gift cards can be written in your words and sentiments.  This is a great option if you are running short on time and want to have the parcel sent to the lucky recipients address.

Suncatcher brooch decoration bug dragonfly butterfly classes

Suncatcher Classes

These classes are suitable for most ages and abilities

Wire wrapping classes are a fun and relaxed way to learn a new skill.  You can bring your own beads and make your very own butterfly or dragonfly (or your own crazy bug) and use it as a suncatcher, ornament, plant decoration or even a brooch.   

Individual classes can generally be adapt to suit your abilities and you can choose which classes to participate in and when.

Don't have the time to do one of my full 2-hour class?

Suncatchers can generally be completed in under an hour.

Cost is $10 plus the materials used (there is a range to choose from – acrylic for the younger creative through to Swarovski crystal to the more discerning artist).

Yes – Children can do the classes.  An Adult will need to stay during the lesson to provide assistance if required, but will not be charged.   Wire is used to create these delightful creatures so very young children may find it a difficult media to work with.

Yes – this class can be arranged for small groups and can be booked as part of a birthday party or other celebration.  Extra travel costs may be involved, but please contact me to discuss your requirements.

custom made designs are available MaxineFaye

Custom-made or Commissioned Jewellery

Together we can design an exclusive piece of beaded jewellery

Bespoke and Custom-made designs can be arranged. Make an appointment and bring all your wonderful ideas to the table.

Do you want something exquisite for a special gift?
Don’t have the time to run all over town looking for it?

If you have a special piece in mind, contact me to arrange the design using, colours and beads of your choice and then sit back and relax.

Visit the website to see the work I have done previously and be inspired to join my mission of making the world a more beautiful place.

A Special Occasion Coming Up?

Bespoke creations are wonderful for Gifts, Weddings, Balls or other special occasions.

glass pearl and crystal necklace

Are you looking for an exquisite gift? Let me create it for you and you won’t have to run all over town looking for it?

Have you an accumulation of beads from your travels that you would like crafted into a fabulous piece for yourself or someone special?

Would you like duplicates of chosen designs made for Bridesmaids or family members

Most bespoke or custom-made designs can be made in multiples*

Some of my existing designs can be duplicated or remade in different materials or stones to suit your requirements.  This will depend on the availability (and suitability) of the materials and the original design.

Visit the Testimonial page to read reviews from some of my previous customers, and feel free to contact me to ask any questions.

Do you love one of my designs?

But need it altered to suit your requirements?

I can often change the clasp style.  Do you find the basic lobster style difficult to use?  I can add a toggle or magnetic clasp.  As a result, it will be easier for you to wear.

Either due to different requirements or personal likes you may want an ear-wire changed.  I can change earrings from hook to stud or even lever-back.  Especially of interest to those without piercings, I can alter most designs to suit non-pierced ears by using clip-on or screw-on findings.

If you have allergies to some metals, ear-wires can be changed to surgical steel or niobium (which is physiologically inert and hypoallergenic)

Depending on the design of the original piece, I can at times reduce / increase existing designs if they are too large / small.

The Initial Consultation is Free!

And you are under no obligation to continue with the design.

custom made set

All costs will be quoted on before you commit to the project and you will be asked to confirm your acceptance of the costs and the design in writing.

Bespoke designs or Commissions and large alterations will require a 50% deposit once the design has been finalised and the quote accepted.

This deposit is refundable, less any supplies specific for your design that have been ordered.  Under some circumstances an hourly fee may be deducted for time already spent on a complex design.

Crafting of the item will not commence until the quote has been accepted and the deposit paid.  (Please keep this in mind if the design is required by a certain date).

The item may not be collected or posted until final payment has cleared.

What Length Should I Order

How to choose the necklace slength that suits you.

Names of some Standard Necklace Lengths

  • Collar – this style fits closely around the neck 
  • Choker – sits around the base of the neck and is a 
  • Princess – sits on the collarbone and is a popular length
  • Matinee – Falls below the collarbone and above the bust
  • Opera – falls below the bust
  • Rope / Lariat – Falls towards the naval.  These are the longest style with the rope not having a clasp while the lariat does.

These longer styles can be worn long as a single strand, wrapped two or even three times for a layered look or knotted.

Standard necklace length and names

Standard Mens Necklace Lengths

  • 18 inch – sits at the base of the neck.
  • 20 inch – sits at the collarbone
  • 22 inch – sits below the collarbone
  • 24 inch – sits above the sternum
  • Over 24 inch sits on or below the sternum

How to measure for a custom necklace

The fall of the mentioned lengths will be determined by your height and fullness of your neck and chest.

Decide where you would like the necklace to sit, then take a piece of string or similar and drape it around your neck.  Bring the string together at the point on your chest you would like the necklace to sit.  Not this on the string with a marker, or by cutting it at that point.  Lay the string out flat and measure.  This is the length to request your necklace be made to.

Please remember this does not include the additional length of any pendant or tassel which you will need to be mindful of.

Welcome to my blog

Welcome to My Blog

Vision Statement

At MaxineFaye I believe in encouraging each person to
express themselves and celebrate their uniqueness.

Lets get to know each other!

Here's a bit about me.

The combinations of colour, texture and the “feel” of the beads are what inspire my original designs and as a beaded jewellery artisan I love working with colour and light,  The unique shapes and colour combinations of lamp-work and art-glass, the precision and sparkle of Swarovski crystal and the organic feel of semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, and metals ae all considered in my designs.

I’ll add some information on how to care for and clean your beaded jewellery and gemstones.  New collections will be showcased and you will be kept in the loop with upcoming events and awards

If you have any suggestions or requests, I would love to hear from you

Beaded Jewellery

Beaded Jewellery is a bit of an obsession

I took a course at a local Recreation Centre and was hooked immediately.  I have always been crafty and have dabbled in Folk Art, Macramé, Decoupage, Lead-lighting, Woodwork and many other forms or creativity.  

But being able to design and create beautiful Jewellery with the colours and stones I love is amazing.

Seeing other people enjoying and wearing my designs is very exciting and I love receiving testimonials from my happy customers.

I have been honoured to win awards for my beadwork and enjoy the excitement of the challenge.  Using materials or techniques that I wouldn’t generally incorporate in my designs is stimulating.

Bespoke and commissioned work, repairs and remodelling of customers’ existing pieces and classes are other services I offer.  Contact me to arrange an appointment.

You can view (and hopefully purchase) my designs at Markets around Perth, Western Australia or from the Bibra Lake studio.

You may also receive free standard postage within Australia when you purchase online

Due to my attention to detail, adding extras like crimp covers and wire guardians, all my original designs come with a 12-month guarantee.

The Environment

Our environment is also a passion.

Much of my packaging is recycled.  Both to keep down the costs and to reduce waste.

Some of my designs use recycled or up-cycled materials.  This is always clearly indicated in the description of the piece.

Our house is set up as energy saving as we are able.  We have solar hot water, solar energy, water saving taps, toilet and shower and an inline water filter for the whole house. LED lighting, ceiling fans for both relief in summer and to keep the heat down during winter further reduce the running costs.

The garden follows a general permaculture / no dig practice. We harvest our own avocado, mango, citrus and other fruit and vegetables.

Vegetables and herbs which benefit from shade sit under some shrubs, while the heat loving plants find their spots on the edges of the gardens.  The garden isn’t always tidy, (who am I kidding – it is seldom tidy) but the bees and butterflies (and children) seem to enjoy it.

The chooks have yet to read the “no dig” agreement though!  They help dispose of the kitchen waste and reward us with eggs, so are generally forgiven.  When they stop laying, they enjoy their retirement foraging around the back yard.  We could never eat them.

Hubby has recently set up a flow-hive for the bees in the backyard so we are looking forward to harvesting our own honey.  He has also set up some native beehives in the front yard.  These aren’t for the honey, but to encourage them to stay in the garden to protect it from pests and to help pollinate the plants.

Family, Friends & Community

Friends, family and community are important to me.  My favourite way to spend an evening is with family and friends.  
Throw in a bottle of wine and some cheese and I am over the moon.  Also, Bundy and chocolate wont be scoffed at.

I donate Gift Vouchers, Jewellery items and Class Certificates to Community Groups to assist with their fund-raising.  I also donate time and materials at Community events where I teach visitors (young and young-at-heart) to make their own beaded sun-catchers.

What's your passion/s?

Now you know about me. Tell me a bit about yourself.

Do you have a favourite hobby? Is there a cause you are ardent over?

I would love to know what things you enjoy.  What makes you want to leap out of bed in the morning?

Repair and remodelling service at MaxineFaye

Let me Repair or Remodel

your broken or damaged beadwork

I can repair broken strands by restringing.  I offer silk for Pearls and softer Gemstones as that will protect the delicate bead.  Because of wear and tear from the sharp edges of Glass or Crystal designs, a stronger thread or beading wire may be needed.

I can tidy up an existing design if it has damaged sections. The amount of repair will depend on the amount of damage to the original design and if you want to replicate it or remodel the design.

Altering earring wires either due to different requirements or personal likes is another thing I offer.  I can change earrings from hook to stud or even lever-back.  Especially relevant for those without piercings, I can alter most designs to suit non-pierced ears by using clip-on or screw-on findings.  Also, if you have allergies to some metals, earwires can be changed to surgical steel or niobium (which is physiologically inert and hypoallergenic)

Would you like to change a style of clasp.  Do you find the basic lobster style difficult to use?  I can add a toggle or magnetic clasp.  As a result, wearing your jewellery will be easier.

 

repair glass pearl necklace
The original necklace above belonged to the customers Mother…but had been placed into an ultrasonic cleaner and much of the coating has come off the glass beads.
 I rethreaded with new Pearls, cleaned, and replaced lost crystals in the clasp and added the extra strand which had been broken a long time ago.   From the salvaged beads of the original design, I made bracelets for the Bride and Flower-Girl (great-granddaughter of the original owner). It is always such an honour to be trusted with items as sentimental as this.

Other Repairs I Offer

Although elastic bracelets look good, and are often cheap, they are also my biggest request for repair.  People buy them while on holidays or from Trash and Treasure markets and are then disappointed when they break.

I don’t make this style even if a customer insists.  I would rather miss out on the sale, than have the concern that their bracelet will not last the lifetime I would expect of one of my designs.  

When customers bring them to me to repair, I generally thread the beads onto beading wire and add a clasp.  This can result in a couple of beads left over and these can be turned into simple earrings at no extra charge.  An example of this is pictured below.

Repair Remodelling Service - Originally an elastic bracelet which had broken. I fixed it with a clasp and the extra pearls were made into earrings.

Tired, Outdated or Unloved Designs?

Does your existing beaded jewellery need some TLC?

Your old pieces of damaged or out-dated jewellery can be given a new lease on life because I can repair or remodel them and consequently you will be able to wear them again.

Do you want to remodel your tired old designs?  Do you have some wonderful ideas of what you would like, but not sure how to go about it?  Have you been making a scrapbook or Pinterest board of designs you like?  Are you ready to get that design created?

Have you inherited or been gifted beaded jewellery that is just not right for you? Possibly it is too long or short for you?  Consequently, even though you love the piece you are unable to wear it. 
This can be changed!  The piece below was made a little larger to suit the customer.

Request a Free Consultation

And tidy up your jewellery box

Repair and remodel the outdated items in your jewellery box

Do you have a box of bits and pieces?  Have you lost one of the earrings – do you know I can turn it into a charm for a bracelet or even a pendant.  Sometimes I may have similar beads and be able to make something suitable.

If you need extra beads or materials for your chosen design, you can either choose from a large range of beads and findings I have available, supply your own or I can order that “certain” bead in for you.

All costs of the repair will be quoted on before you commit to the project and you will be asked to confirm your acceptance of the costs and the design in writing.  Crafting of the item will not commence until the quote has been accepted and the deposit paid.

I hope you found this page helpful.

The initial consultation is free, and you are under no obligation to continue with the design.

I look forward to working with you and creating some magical designs or mending your existing loved pieces
