About

My addiction to beads

I began "playing" with beads about 15 years ago, just as a hobby. I had a party dress that I wanted to embellish with beads and sequins, so I did. The dress came out beautifully and I started to do a few things once in a while. I was addicted in no time. My obsession progressed over the years so that now I make beautiful beaded jewelry and accessories.
My design process is really very simple, buy beautiful beads and let them 'tell' me what they want to become. I first clean the beads when they come in, as they can sometimes have residue from drilling. I then spend time with each strand individually, rolling them around in my hands and feeling the 'vibe' of the beads. As strange as it may seem to some, this actually works. I get a feel for the beads and where they might look and feel best to wear. For some of the more complicated items, this can actually take time.
Once I have decided what the beads want to become, I sit down and pull it all together into something that can be enjoyed for years to come.
