Hi. I'm Lawrence, a creative with a fondness for all things unique and handmade. I started beYOUteous with a trip to the library to read up on art of beadweaving. At the time, I had a strong need to create with my hands something that required focus... and beadweaving seemed like a challenge that I was ready to take on. The name beYOUteous was chosen to promote acceptance for individuality. Be. You.
A line of handcrafted beaded jewelry, beYOUteous aims to spread the message for embracing individuality, feminine strength, and empowerment. My goal is to provide quality, handmade jewelry to women who prefer to shop small and have a connection with the business/brand that they're supporting.
Still in its "developmental" stage, I'm continuing to grow both as a creative as well as an individual, and hope to share that through the evolution of my work.
In a world that constantly tries to imply that we, as individuals, are not enough... we invite you to rethink the narrative and regain your individuality. The underlying message is that it's okay to just be you — every perfectly imperfect inch of you. It's more than okay, in fact... it's preferable. "There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful than a woman being unapologetically herself."
