He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.

TRAVEL MADE JEWELS

Strongbeads story is a journey around collectible beads. Collecting and studying these while travelling the world and making unique loving jewels with colourful, good glass beads and other natural sustainable materials. Each piece is knotted by hand, passionate time-consuming work, meditative and peaceful. 

Our designs, the handcrafted 'slow jewels' [good made - last longer], are made in our studio in India. In a safe and clean environment. We work in a small fisherman's village with a team of professionally trained local women. With pride in their skills and the work that gives them economic independence, we have become a creative family.

All these fascinating beads must have been in hundreds of hands all over the world for many different reasons. Strongbeads collects them from a lot of different places on different continents. They are used, traded, copied from history, designed, crafted, sold, dusted. They were in strorehouses, ships, airoplanes, suitcases, on tables, on people wearing them [on different occasions like weddings], even they were in shops, markets, counters and tables ....... Even they were part of our earth sources.
