Rebecca Bechel

General crafting has always been a large part of Rebecca’s life, but it wasn’t until 2002 that she discovered the true joys of beadwork. As a self-taught beaded jewelry designer, she operated a brick and mortar store, selling her handmade jewelry and gifts and teaching an occasional class. In 2016, Rebecca moved to the Vegas area with the intent of expanding her creative network and sharing her love for beading.

Rebecca’s unique jewelry designs have won several awards and have been featured in industry leading magazines. It is often easy to spot Rebecca’s work by the bright colors and intricate detail of her pieces. Influenced by the colors and patterns of day-to-day life, she is always seeking new shapes and color combinations to add to her designs.
