Christine White, CEO of Beads Incorporated, has been selected as one of The Mecklenburg Times “50 Most Influential Women of 2019.”
White founded Beads Incorporated in 2001 and runs the Charlotte-based retail and design studio with her sister, Anne Todd. Known as one of the Carolinas’ foremost sources of beads, jewelry, supply and instruction, Beads Incorporated specializes in finished jewelry and creating unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. In addition, White started a brand – Christine White Style – to attract a new and younger generation of jewelry designers and hobbyists. White’s in-store education classes and YouTube videos are geared for both jewelry making aficionados and those just beginning to learn the craft. She is also committed to helping jewelry designers start and grow their business.
“Being among Charlotte’s 50 Most Influential Women is a tremendous honor,” said White. “I am very fortunate to do what I love and to have an amazing team who has helped me thrive and grow Beads Incorporated. It is so rewarding to bring the joy of creating beautiful, handmade jewelry to women who may have otherwise never discovered their artistic side.”
The 50 Most Influential Women event was created to spotlight and recognize the important role women play in the greater Charlotte region, in the economy, and in society. The 11th Annual “50 Most Influential Women” Awards will be held on April 26 at the Hilton Charlotte Center City.
