About Lynnae

I have always loved pretty rocks, jewelry and dressing up and tea parties. All these things eventually led to Lady Grey Beads. Evoking the glamour and elegance of the 1920-50s, my jewelry is inspired by the beauty and color of natural stones, the miracle and iridescence of pearls, the sparkle of Swarovski crystals and the intense colors of Venetian glass.

I'm often asked about how the name Lady Grey Beads came to be. I am a tea lover and used to host Afternoon Teas years before I was making jewelry. My love for Earl Grey tea earned me the nickname "Lady Grey" by my husband soon after we were married. As I pondered a name for my business, my husband suggested Lady Grey Beads. I loved it immediately. Lady Grey Beads is where good company, fine teas and exquisite artisan handmade jewelry meet. It is the best of all my worlds colliding. 

Welcome to the world of Lady Grey (Beads)! May you sparkle and shine everyday of your life.
