About

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.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 3, 2016
I make one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. Although I may someday create a similar piece, I will never (unless I am making a replacement piece that coordinated with another listing) repeat myself exactly. I make every effort to be neat and precise in my work. I want you to enjoy your shopping experience here and to be fully satisfied with your purchase.

Note: Please check the materials listings if you have metal allergies. Not all of my pieces are appropriate for those with metal allergies, as I am particularly fond of copper and brass. If you have any questions or concerns, please convo me and I'll help you in any way I can.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment through direct shop payment or PayPal, where you can use your credit card, or bank account. If you have any questions about this, please convo me and I will be happy to try to help. If you must send a Money Order, I will wait one week from the sale date for your payment, and your goods will not be sent until your check has cleared my bank.
Shipping
I usually ship via the US Postal Priority Mail service, and your signature may be required. I do this for our mutual safety. International service varies by country. Please convo me for details. I will not ship without available tracking information. If customs charges are incurred on international shipments, these are the buyers obligation.
Refunds and Exchanges
I accept returns up to two weeks from the date of purchase, and after that time, all sales are final. If you decide to return a purchase, you are responsible for timely shipping and insurance.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am willing to consider customizing for you. Please let me know what you are thinking, and I'll let you know if I think I can help you, and provide you with an estimated cost. Custom projects take an average two weeks to complete, but can be faster or slower depending on the scope, details, and my schedule.
