Elaine Pote's Profile
Hi, my name is Miss Elaine, thus the name of my store and jewelry line, MissElaineous Jewelry. I have had this nickname since high-school. I’ve been beading for as long as I can remember. As a child I took broken jewelry and restrung it into interesting new designs. (Okay sometimes it wasn't already broken.) As an adult I have begun to see jewelry in many different things. I like to take old items and give them new life.
While living in Italy, I began bead weaving. I took a class in even count peyote and never looked back. I have taught myself a dozen different weaving styles, from RAW to Ogallala Butterfly. I have tried to take these weaves and turn them into something new. I have experimented with different materials and ways of implementing the weaves.
Sometimes it's been difficult to locate the products I want, so I’ve started making my own silver and copper findings. This means I’ve had to learn…
