"An Amazing Talent Lost Too Soon"

Merle Berelowitz, the incredibly talented artist behind Ms Maddies Beads, passed away on July 18th, 2013, but her innovative ideas, creativity and legacy of breathtaking work live on.

One of the most defining aspects of Merle's persona was her creativity and artistry together with a desire for excellence in what she created, almost a search for perfection. She is recognized as a Bead Artist-creator of exquisite beaded jewelry that established her as a master in the field. Her artistic work is characterized by the way she incorporated all she loved in nature and the environment into her pieces. Each piece depicted flowers or scenes from her world travels and experiences and all included a ladybug hidden somewhere in the midst.

As an artist, Merle dedicated herself to constantly learning, honing her craft, sharing her works (her work has been extensively published) and in teaching her skills to the next generation. She would think it entirely wonderful that her legacy continues and is shared here with you.

Together as partners, both in friendship and commitment to Ms Maddies Beads, Niki Berelowitz Best (Merle's daughter) and Margaret Maurer (life long friend) will lovingly maintain Merle's website and collection of beautiful pieces. We will slowly be releasing pieces available for purchase in limited quantities. You can admire them here and possibly be fortunate enough to acquire a piece to call your own.
