  • Overview

    For Warren Feld, Jewelry Designer, beading and jewelry making have been wonderful adventures. These adventures have taken Warren from the basics of bead stringing and bead weaving, to pearl knotting, micro-macrame, wire working, wire weaving and silversmithing, and onward to more complex jewelry designs which build on the strengths of a full range of technical skills and experiences.  In 2000, Warren founded The Center for Beadwork & Jewelry Arts (CBJA) as the educational program for Be Dazzled Beads-Land of Odds in Nashville, Tennessee.     The program approaches education from a Design Perspective.   There is a major emphasis on teaching how to make better choices when selecting beads, other parts and stringing materials, and how to bring these altogether into a beautiful, yet functional, piece of jewelry.  After all, for jewelry to be successful, unlike painting and sculpture, it must interrelate aesthetics, function and context.      Warren’s pieces have appeared in beading and jewelry magazines and books, including Perlen Posie (“Gwynian Ropes Bracelet”, No. 21, 2014), Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry (“Little Tapestries: Ghindia”, Lark Publications, 2012). One piece (“Canyon Sunrise”), which won 4th place in Swarovski’s Naturally Inspired Competition (2008), is in the Swarovski museum in Innsbruck, Austria.   His work has been written up in The Beader’s Guide to Jewelry Design (Margie Deeb, Lark Publications, 2014). He has been a faculty member at, developing video tutorials.     He has been selected as an instructor for the Bead & Button Show, June, 2019, teaching 3 pieces – Japanese Garden Bracelet, Etruscan Square Stitch Bracelet, and ColorBlock Bracelet.    In March 2020, Warren led a travel-enrichment program on Celebrity Cruise Lines, centered on jewelry making, beginning with a cruise from Miami to Cozumel and Key West. Personal style: multi-method, intricate color play, adaptive of traditions to contemporary design, experimental.
