My Red Bead is owned and operated by local Birmingham, Alabama artist, Beth Menke.  Each piece is handcrafted with a hint of bohemnian, yet vintage, style that is always one-of-a-kind.  A hobbyist at heart, Beth found her love for creating jewelry by accident.  It started in the late 90's with a simple gift for a friend and has since grown into a thriving business. 

From stringing to soldering, Beth loves working with natural gemstones, wood, and leather.

The heartbeat of My Red Bead is creating those unique pieces that provide her customers with that rare feeling that they aren't just following the crowd.
