See individual Beaver Island Memories Beads
The necklace shown above has thirteen unique memory beads on a sterling silver chain that is approximately 23 inches long. The clasp is a sterling silver lobster clasp that can actually be hooked anywhere along the chain to make the length of the necklace interchangeable. At the very end is a sterling silver Adirondack chair charm (remember those times sitting on the beach in your Adirondack chair?) and my silver name charm which I put on my special pieces. This necklace is priced at $225. Price is dependent on the number of beads. This is made to order with your individual beads.
The handcrafted Murano Italian glass beads Beaver Island Memories charm bracelet consists of various beads representing different places on Beaver Island as well as selected sterling silver charms. Each charm bracelet is unique. Each special place bead is unique as it is made by hand with molten glass on a torch, by me and is my interpretation of different places on the island. The Beaver Island Memory series is created to keep your memory of Beaver Island fresh in your mind! Remember–Beaver Island is a state of mind. Let me help you design your own Memories bracelet!
Necklaces can be made with these beads, as seen above, or non-charm bracelets, in addition to the charm bracelet. I also have zipper pulls with special BI Memories bead.
The Beaver Island Memories charm bracelets start at $180.00 and can consist of your favorite Memory beads. You can always buy more Memories beads to add to your bracelet during other visits to the island. Contact me below for information on how to construct one of these special bracelets or necklaces.

Sand Bay: Lovely Sand Bay, nice sand beaches, beautiful view, watch the ferry come to the island. $15
Bog Bead: There are several bogs on Beaver Island. Bogs are really special wetland places and not found many places on earth. Beaver Island is one of the few places that you will find a bog. I’ve depicted the look of bogs with greens, blues, browns and a “boggy” look such as Egg Lake shown below. $15
Daddy Franks: Ice cream on a summer evening. Yum! Daddy Franks is the place on Beaver Island! Ice cream cones in different flavors. $15
Dahlwhinnies: Coffee, tea, breakfast, lunch. Good deli! $15
Donegal Bay: When I think of Donegal Bay I think of blue water with sparkles of light thus this bead depicting the bay is blue with little sparkly bumps! $15
French Bay: This is an mysterious area of the island with forested wetlands. This bead depicting French Bay is mostly green with some blues for the lake and a tree on the top. $15
Iron Ore Bay: We love Iron Ore Bay as a place to picnic, walk the beach. It’s a nice drive to the south end, going by the lighthouse. With the tannin rich water running from Iron Ore Creek into the bay you get the rich brown colors along with the sand. Thus, my bead depicting the sand and rich brownish tannin creek. $15

Lake Geneserath: This beautiful, large, inland lake reminds me of the “land of sky blue waters” — you know, if you are older, the old beer commercial! So the bead is made of transparent green glass with rich greens and blues depicting the water and trees surrounding the lake. $15
Miller Marsh: Wetlands, one of our most valuable resources as all sorts of critters live and reproduce in wetland habitats. Protect our island wetlands! Here’s a couple turtles that may want to live in Miller Marsh. $15
Paradise Bay: This is the right name for the gorgeous harbor entrance to Beaver Island. It is all blue and sparkly so the bead tries to capture some of this beauty! $18
