Sparkle Brightly Like The Star You Are!


Hello! Welcome & thank you for finding my newest jewelry making website! My name is Viki Lareau and I've been designing & teaching Jewelry for almost 30 years! Primarily through my retail shop in Tacoma - for more details on all that click on the "About" page above.

Unlike most bead retailers, I've always focused on creating more modern, fashion-forward Jewelry designs. My goal has always been to show my customers how to create the styles & trends seen at Nordstrom, on or on the pages of In Style magazine for themselves, and now for you online! I've traveled all over the world sourcing only high-quality beads & supplies so the jewelry you create not only looks amazing & high end but also so it lasts. That has just as much to do with the expert instruction you'll find here at C&A through instruction sheets & (soon to come!) videos. I purposely create beautiful modern jewelry designs and then make them into Kits using & teaching techniques that I know any skill level will be able to master. Over the last several years I have been successfully developing our most popular classes into take home Kits! These designs ( & many more to come!) will now be offered on Create And Adorn! This website just launched near the end of 2019,  so it may go through a few variations as I adapt my Jewelry Making business from retail to online-only. This includes trying to transition our amazing community from our retail store to this online platform. Given how incredible my local community already is, I have no doubt that whatever we all build here together will be inspiring, amazing & fun! 

Please feel free to email or text me any questions from the "contact" page. There is a Create And Adorn Facebook page & private group there for Members, plus new jewelry designs & kits on this site every week! Please check back often, or join our mailing list, & thank you so much for discovering Create And Adorn today! The tag line above is one I've used for close to a decade now & it's as true now as it was then -
