Andrea Gutierrez Vintage Beaded Warrior Couture

Artist and designer Andrea Gutierrez really is on to something with these one-of-a-kind, handmade beaded couture cuffs. Each design is completely unique and embroidered on silk with vintage or antique beads that Andrea recycles from handbags and accessories that she finds in local flea markets and at dealer shops.
The stunning pieces above are all part of the 'Warrior Couture' Collection for women who are obviously courageous, bold, and free-spirited in all that they undertake.

Thanks for reading and commenting, Jessica. I could not agree more. Andrea really works with the nature and hues of the beads to create beautiful free form patterns and designs. They are truly organic in spirit.

My best ~ A.
