About the Groovy Queen of Beads

Welcome to the Groovy Queen Of Beads!

My name is Jane Lydon and I'm the owner and designer of this funky, fresh jewelry brand! I was born and raised in Phoenix and was sixth out of seven children. I live in North Phoenix with my husband and two crazy labs, and our three adult children are in the area as well. Family means everything to me! 

Growing up in the Southwest, I was always inspired by all of the surrounding Native American jewelry. I remember when I was little, I would tag along with my mother as she frequently visited a local seller of Southwest jewelry. The turquoise and silver always caught my eye, and I was enamored with my mother's beautiful pieces and concho belts. The energy, creativity and passion that went into each piece always excited and memorized me. 

I started creating my own signature pieces and started The Groovy Queen of Beads to share my love of fashion and fine jewelry with the world. Creating is truly my passion. I craft each pieces with mindfulness and happiness, and hope you will share in my love for all things groovy.
