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 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…

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 room with beads of different colors scattered together. It is like working with a painter’s palette.

I also like to work with polymer clay and have spent many happy hours learning how to create beads and pendants with that medium.

I hope you enjoy visiting my shop. Thanks for stopping by.
