Tamara Jordan's Profile

About

I design and sell my award winning beaded treasures at Harlequin Beads and Jewelry in Eugene, OR and have displayed my work in the Sedona Art Center in Sedona, AZ. I have been teaching classes in the Art of Bead Weaving as well as Wire Work and Polymer Clay at Harlequin Beads since March of 2003. My work has been published in Bead and Button Magazine. I love sharing my passion for beading.

While living in Colorado my husband and I decided to sell everything, buy a motor home, and hit the road. Traveling full time and living in the motor home, I discovered beads in 2001. I bought a bead weaving book in a used bookstore in Morro Bay, CA. Shortly after I visited a bead store in Pismo Beach, CA… It’s been a non-stop beading escapade ever since! We finally settled down in the Willamette Valley near Eugene, OR. (I needed more room for beads of course.)…

I create jewelry using many medium, my favorite is weaving with needle and thread. I love the creative aspect of working with beads and color. The design possibilities of working in this medium are endless. Inspiration comes when I sit on the floor of my bead studio with beads of different colors scattered together. It is like working with a painter’s palette.
