One Sweet Bead is a mother-daughter team based in Orlando, FL. After successfully owning and operating DragonFly Beads in Syracuse, NY, mom and I decided to follow the sun (and my heart) here to Orlando. After taking some time off to get acquainted with our new city and enjoy some of the many activities here, both Paula & I started to feel the creative bug, and in summer of 2007 One Sweet Bead was born. Paula and I both had a strong desire to create pieces that spoke to our hearts, and so we set about creating our mixed line of metals and glass with positive intent and happiness poured into each piece. We have been immeasurably blessed over these past 8 years to have been met with such an enthusiastic response to our work. While on the road at trade shows throughout the country we've met amazing customers and made great friends in our fellow vendors. It has been an incredible ride! We are excited about heading back out to shows this year, and we have had a wonderful time meeting new customers in new cities. Paula and I have returned to our work benches with a renewed sense of energy and creativity, and we sincerely hope you love the results.
