Lover of art

Greetings and thanks for stopping by,

I've had my hands in the arts since I was a teen. Back then I learned to embroider when I was laid up with back surgery. Then, through college, I made jewelry to pay the bills. I learned to knit in college, too, and supported myself by knitting hats, too. About ten years ago I got back into making jewelry and I also took up knitting again, and it segued to weaving, which I love.

I'm a writer as well, with published books/works in anthologies. I have a radio show (Writers on Writing, KUCI-FM). But I always have to work with color. Keeps me sane.

When it comes to beads, I love vintage glass beads, pearls, and semi precious gemstones. I also love collecting sea glass at our local beach here in Southern California and creating wirewrapped pendants.

What's also fun is when a friend or client brings beads or an old necklace to me and wants me to fashion it into something new. I welcome custom orders.

When it comes to yarn, I love natural fibers: wool, silk, bamboo. I recently got into dyeing roving wool and it's exciting to see what the end result will be.

Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to Low Tide Designs. What you see in my store is made by me, with love and care. I use the best yarns, jewelry findings, beads, and more, to create and I do so in a house near the beach in Southern California, midway between San Diego and Los Angeles. Thank you for looking at my items!
