About

I am a professional knitter turned jewelery artist. About eight years ago I was knitting for a top designer making sample sweaters when a friend showed me some beads she bought at a bead show. I was instantly intrigued. I went to a local bead store to check it out. Sparkly! Shiny! I was hooked! I loved the idea of creating something in few hours as opposed to a few weeks. It was instant gratification. I took every class I could, worked at a bead store and set up a studio in my home. I continued my jewelry design education at the Corcoran College of Art & Design. Recently, we bought a farm and my husband spent a year building our new home. I have a beautiful new studio with lots of windows and space. I spend my days creating and wrangling our two teenagers. I look forward to showing you all my new creations as I expand my skills and knowledge and I’m so excited with the idea tempting a much larger audience through Etsy…
