About Jessica
From a captivating childhood love for craft store beads to the establishment of a thriving bead business, Giovacchini's creative journey unfolds as a vibrant exploration of jewelry making. Starting with a small selection of craft store beads, she ventured into experimenting with various jewelry-making techniques, embracing the realms of lampworking, resin, polymer clay, and bead embroidery. Yet, it was the enchanting world of bead weaving and the allure of seed beads that truly captured her heart. Giovacchini refers to her beading time as a personal form of meditation.

Recognizing the limitations of wearing an abundance of jewelry in a lifetime, her passion for creating purposeful items, including decorative ones, fueled her ongoing artistic journey. She takes joy in sharing her expertise, teaching others the art of creating with beads, and have recently ventured into offering patterns, kits, and exploring additional ways of providing classes. Armed with a degree from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, her original pursuit in web design has seamlessly evolved into her creative endeavors. Possessing a keen eye for color, she was often sought after to assist in the meticulous color selection process.
