The kit arrived very quickly, the instructions were easy to follow and the earrings are beautiful! The colors go with a necklace/bracelet combo from another designer that I made some time ago.
Weaving tiny little beads into beautiful jewelry!
I was born driven to create with my hands. From a young age I knitted, crocheted, sewed and did embroidery. In 1990 I found beads! This has been the medium which has sustained me with it's breadth of design possibility and the ability to create the beautiful jewelry that I so loved to wear.
I spent years learning and perfecting the fundamental skills necessary to be able to create what my mind could envision. I then began my design and teaching career, leaving behind a corporate career in 2004 to pursue the beady life full time.
It's been a great career with lots of domestic and international teaching opportunities, the publication of books and videos and interaction with so many wonderful beaders!
For the last 15 years I have been putting together beads and instructions for other beading enthusiasts to be able to create my designs. Having had a corporate career in manufacturing systems, I enjoy the process of creating the kits and bringing you beautiful supplies and well illustrated instruction so that you can be successful in replicating my designs.
