So I suppose you want to know what...or WHO the Beatle Baby is.
That'd be me.
In the Winter of '64 the Beatles touched down in the USA and made their world altering appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. There wasn't an American alive who didn't know who John, Paul, George and Ringo were. Their music...and hair... swept the nation like wildfire. A few months later, in the wee hours of the morning, a baby was born. A baby with rediculous hair and just a sitting duck for the obvious nickname. Alas, the BeatleBaby as I became known to the entire hospital's staff, was born.
I'm a single mom of the most amazing 15 year old girl and my art has been the major source of my income for over 20 years and the sole source for 13 years.
I've been selling the fruits of an overactive imagination since I was nine. From sculpture and metal smithing to needle felting and pottery and just about anything that can be…

I've been selling the fruits of an overactive imagination since I was nine. From sculpture and metal smithing to needle felting and pottery and just about anything that can be formed from fabric. I've been a metal smith since 1992 and molten glass oozed it's way into my brain in 2001 and has been there ever since. I taught myself how to work with glass with little more than a book and a million ideas. And ever since then I have strived to be unique and to produce beads that are truely a one-of-a-kind Beatlebaby creations... ( I prefer to be the original, not the sequel)
So until the day comes that they have to pry the torch from my crooked old fingers and stick me in a home, I'll be cookin up somethin good. Even then I'll probably be trying to figure out how to hook up some propane to my oxygen tank and torch my bifocals into a cute pendant :)
