Sam Wescott

Hello, everyone! My name is Sam Wescott and I am both the designer of the bead weaving patterns and the creator of the finished jewelry available in my little Etsy shop – Wescott Jewelry. I live in Cincinnati with my musician husband and an arrogant little calico named Bridget.

I started making friendship bracelets when I was 13 and my love of jewelry making has snowballed since then. I started playing with stringing beads and learned some Kumihimo braiding. Then, I found my true love in bead weaving, an off-loom stitched jewelry-making technique that allows me to be both a creative artist and a thoughtful puzzler.

All the bead weaving tutorials/patterns in my shop were designed by me. I hope that other beaders can experiment with them and be just an inspired as I was by the work of other designers.
