I started beading over 20 years ago when my boyfriend wanted beads woven into his hair. A strange beginning, I'll admit, but it began my passion for beads and, soon after, making jewelry. The boyfriend is long gone, but the beads are still here!
I've been crafting and creating art my entire life, from painting and drawing, to paper crafts and scrapbooking....and, of course, making jewelry!
I find inspiration for my work everywhere - nature, art, textiles and, especially, every time I walk into a bead store. My current passion is wirework, and aluminum wire in particular. I love finding new ways to manipulate it and create something beautiful.
