Latest update!

June 28th:
All crystal bracelets have been repriced to $40 to match the lower price available in my Etsy shop.

In an effort to increase my focus on fantasy jewelry, I'm now clearing out a lot of beautiful items that just don't quite fit. To see what's on sale, either browse the categories, or do a search for "clearance."

Check my Etsy shop (linked below) for Daily Specials.

Postal rate increases got you down? Never fear, Erthe Fae Designs still offers free US shipping.

My name is AJ Reardon; I founded Erthe Fae Designs in October 1998 at the tender age of 16. At the time, I was just hoping to make a little extra money to buy holiday presents. Little did I realize what I was getting myself into!

Although I'd been beading since I was a little kid, I didn't get fully hooked on beads until I started selling jewelry. Only then did I start to learn just how many different types of beads and beading techniques there were. I had to try them all!

As an artist, I'm inspired by myths, folk lore, and nature. I love dark, subdued colors, but occasionally my muse feels like doing something a little brighter. For the most part, I strive for an elegant Gothic aesthetic in much of my work. I get the most joy out of beadweaving techniques, though I also string and dabble in wirework.

I have a great many hobbies outside of beading. I'm an aspiring author, an avid fantasy roleplayer, a voracious reader, and a novice belly dancer.

I live in Tucson, AZ with my wonderful husband Chris and two troublesome cats.
