Beading is my joy, my passion, my love, my talent. I fell in love with beaded jewelry in 1942. My mother, sister and I lived in Johannesburg, South Africa. Mother collected marvelous African bead work. So off we would go to the villages with bags of beads, flour, sugar, small round mirrors and fabric for trade. I can still see those beautiful brown bare breasted women adorned with amazing colorful beaded jewelry.

The beaded jewelry is made with the ancient art of needle bead weaving that I learned from my sister, Hanna, and then I went on to develop my own designs. Using a special needle, thread and a variety of stitches, I add glass and semiprecious beads to other beads. Even though each piece takes a long time to make, you can see that it is well worth the special time to create these original “works of art.” Each piece takes about 8 up to 40 hours to make.

The beaded jewelry is much more than a beautiful adornment. When you wear my art as jewelry, you have the opportunity to be empowered by a certain quality that I have imbued in it. I encourage you to hang the beadwork jewelry on your wall so it can continue to delight and empower you.

Since needle bead weaving is not messy, dirty, and toxic, I do all my beading
in my living room. Sitting on my couch looking out my window I see my luscious garden,
a vast view of rolling hills, and a brilliant blue sky. I take a few deep breaths to find
my inner place of peaceful stillness. Soon, I feel a familiar inner stirring which lets me
know that my intuitive self is ready to create - and so I begin to bead. I watch in delighted amazement as the colorful, gleaming beads create a jewelry form. I ask for a name and empowering quality. The name jumps into my head and I sense an enhancing distinction.
Confidently experience this Lovely Laura necklace heightening your femininity.
