I do Made to Order, conv. me for custom order.
I was always interested in anything to do with weaving fibers, from macrame yarn wall hangings to hand made baskets. I wanted to use beads for my abstract woven wall hangings and it was hard to match some of the colors. That's when I started making my own oven -baked clay beads and using small glass…

I was always interested in anything to do with weaving fibers, from macrame yarn wall hangings to hand made baskets. I wanted to use beads for my abstract woven wall hangings and it was hard to match some of the colors. That's when I started making my own oven -baked clay beads and using small glass beads.
After playing with the small glass beads, I started stitching them together. That's when I made my 1st amulet bag necklace. Self-taught, no " how-to" books.
Working at a gold prospecting and bead store in Boise, Idaho . In the early 1990s, I taught a class on making dream catcher earrings.
From 1995 to 1999, I worked and taught beadwork at Crafter's Choice in Boise, Idaho. I sold my work at craft shows starting in the 1990s at the Hyde Park Street Fair, Boise River Festival Art Show , the Goddess Fest, 6th Street Fair, Kuna Days, Emmettt Cherry Festival, The Boise Blues Society "Blues at the Zoo" and at a Native American powwow at Montour,Idaho, Pocatello, Idaho, Nevada and Reno.
In April 1998, at the Boise Art Museum, in conjunctin with the exhibition "Pure Vision: American Bead Artist." I did beading demonstrations.
My beadwork has been advertised in Sunset Magazine and sold in Sun Valley, Idaho at Art and Soul Gallery, where I designed & made their Signature Gallery Amulet Leather & Beads Bag Necklaces. and the Boise Art Museum. I also taught my beaded E-Bead necklace in Sun Valley, Idaho.

I startedt the Boise Bead Society in July 15, 1998 and is still going strong today. Since the early 2000s I've sold my beadwork on E-bay, Blues at the Zoo and Seasons in Thyme all in Boise, Idaho and donated many pieces to my favorite charities.
In 2007-2009 I sold my jewelry at Kaye York's Gallery in Cambridge, Idaho. I offered beaded evening bags and jewelry at the Gallery at Hyde Park on N. 13th Street here In Boise until they closed their doors in September 2009.
From 2009-2011 I have been healing from 2 neck & 1 Shoulder Surgeries. So, I've had a lot of time thinking for beadwork I want to do and share with people who apreciate the art in beads.

Thanks for looking!
