Really delighted with my earrings which arrived within a couple of days following my order. Thank you.
All of my life I have been doing some sort of handcraft, from knitting, crocheting & needlework when I was very young, to the beading I did when I was a teenager. One day in 1999, I walked into the bead store across the street from where I worked, & I was hooked again! I have been making precious, semi-precious and hand beaded jewelry since then, originally intending them for my own use. Friends (strangers, too) kept offering to buy my jewelry right off my body, so I decided to start selling my creations, and now I'm offering my one-of-a-kind pieces here.
My designs are influenced by the places I've lived -- New York City, San Francisco, Kauai & currently Languedoc (France) -- as well as the many places I've traveled across the U.S. & the world. One of my favorite things is exploring different techniques & materials. I am constantly amazed at the wide range of things I can create from simple materials. Come back to my shop often to see what new items I add.
My chain maille design was featured in the March 2012 issue of BeadStyle Magazine & in the book "52 Bracelets" published by Kalmbach in 2012. It was the first chain maille piece I made & it was published in a major magazine! Woo-hoo! :-D
