From the early days of simply stringing beads together to make pretty patterns, to currently using polymer clay as a basis for spectacularly beaded wearable art, each day I spend in my studio is a joyful experience.

DISCLAIMER: I've tried hard to portray the colors of my jewelry and beads accurately. However, colors do vary on different monitors; please keep this in mind if you're interested in my pieces. Descriptions list lengths and sizes.

Please visit my other shop at BuyBeads.etsy.com where I sell beading supplies.
