    I started beading unexpectedly in 2007 after completing two undergraduate programs and a year of graduate school, and haven't looked back! I love making wearable artwork with beads and sharing my passion with students around the world.

Shop policies

Welcome to my Etsy shop, where you can find original handmade jewelry, beading supplies, and patterns and kits for some of my designs.
------------------------------------------------------
HANDMADE JEWELRY

If you see an item you like but would like it in a different size, color, or finish, please contact me and I will create your custom order and list it on Etsy as a "Reserved Listing".

------------------------------------------------------
PATTERNS

My patterns are regarded in the industry as some of the most well-illustrated and well-written. Every pattern also contains the basic primers on the stitches used in the design.

All of my patterns are available either as downloadable PDFs or printed on paper and shipped. Please be aware there is an extra $1.50 charge for printed and shipped patterns to cover shipping and handling.

------------------------------------------------------
KITS

All kits contain both the paper pattern needed to create the piece of jewelry, with step-by-step directions and beautifully illustrated diagrams, and all of the beads needed to create the design and size it to your liking.
