Hi---I am Dr. Lisa Senetar, owner, designer and maker of PHBEAD JEWELRY. I launched PHBEAD, a playful combination of Ph.D. and bead, to combine my science background with my passion for creating handmade jewelry. I use polymer chemistry to create unique, handcrafted resin and clay jewelry that is vibrant and modern. I am best known for my custom collection of insect wing jewelry. I am inspired by texture, color, and shape and love how these basic elements can play with and against one another to create a bold yet accessible aesthetic. My mission is to create handmade jewelry that translates to any wardrobe, inspires confidence with every wear, and provides connection with every compliment.
