Theatrical, Intricate, and Timeless Wearable Beadwoven Art

Adornment of the human body has been my work for over 40 years. In 2007, I discovered beadweaving. In it, I find a new purpose for my mother’s lessons in handcraft, and my degrees in theatrical costume design. It supplies a means to capture and preserve my love of the elegance of nature, since much of my subject material is botanical or landscape. I also delight in creating art inspired by characters from literature. My work is usually intended to be worn in relationship to the face.

Beadweaving is textile in nature, creating flexible, soft, and drapey results. It is the perfect medium for a woman who has spent her life sculpting clothing from fabric. Using needle and thread as my structural tools, I capture imagery and ideas in glass, stone, pearls and fossils. My techniques include both ancient stitches from cultures across the globe, and improvisation to suit my purposes. The process is labor intensive, and I find the repetition of thread paths meditative. I love the sensation of my creations growing in my hands, and of “fingering things out”. I look forward to retirement as an opportunity to spend more time weaving beads into my life.

    I design and write tutorials for beadwoven jewelry. I also produce limited run kits of beads for use in making my tutorials. Occasionally, I still find time to create some one-of-a-kind wearable art. I hope you will enjoy browsing my offerings.
