Betty T Anderson's Profile

About

I'm Betty Anderson. I started stringing beads 15 years ago, just for relaxation. I got hooked when I started using Lampwork glass beads for composition inspiration. When I see a beautiful piece of art in the form of a glass artisan-created "gem" I'm compelled to find stone beads, mostly natural, that compliment the glass artist's creation. I also have jewelry listed that use only natural stone components such as fine Arizona Turquoise.

I also facet colored gem stones. I learned meet-point gem crystal faceting in the 1970's. It's a perfect fit for blending my creative side with my linear side. I may list a gem stone from time to time so be on the lookout. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this. "Live long and prosper", Betty
