I first started learning about bead making by using earthenware and firing in my little itty bitty kiln, but I’m now creating with mid-fire (2200 degrees) porcelain.

I love fashion and believe that keeping current is the way to go when it comes to bead and jewelry making.

Today, I am also part of another very new group called Love My Art Jewelry. Our motto is "Creating Handmade with Handmade." You can learn a little more about us by following our blog: http://lovemyartjewelry.blogspot.com
