It has just the right amount of technical challenge and obviously I get to be creative and add touches my personality to each piece. I have now started teaching my designs in local bead shops, I am going to have my 9th published piece in a magazine in the summer of 2017 and I have started selling tutorials as well. I have won an award from Fire Mt Seed Bead Contest, Gold Medal for my Pink Peyote bracelet and now I an a member of The BeadSmith Inspiration Squad and I am so honored to be placed among some of the top bead weaving jewelry designers from around the world. I hope you like my stuff, tell your friends and check back weekly. Thanks for stopping by and buying handmade!
