About

Once upon a time in Maui ...

... while visiting a tropical park called the Garden of Eden, my sister-in-law and I stumbled upon a man creating brightly colored seed jewelry. His necklace and bracelet creations were spread out on a straw mat in the shade overlooking a fantastic view of a waterfall. He told us about his interest in beading and made it sound fun and enjoyable. We both bought a bracelet and later in the day I remember wondering whether it would be difficult to make a similar bracelet. My interest grew to amazement when I visited my first bead shop in the nearby town of Paia. The colors! The bead varieties! The gorgeous designs! After returning home, I began to notice bead shops and jewelry making magazines. An acquaintance who was a beader gave me the components for my first necklace and ..well, I was hooked!
My friends and family received my first "creations". Although they were basic designs, everyone was impressed with my new found skills, and my enthusiasm for beading rubbed off. Soon several family members joined me and "ikandies" was born!
Each of us brings something different to the beading table in the way of skills and design ideas. We've taught ourselves many of the techniques we use, but we've also attended classes at the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee since 2007. We've also taken classes at the Gem and Mineral Show in Tucson and Beadfest in Philadelphia. These classes have expanded our knowledge of techniques in wire working, metal smithing, chain maille, silver metal clay, peyote, macrame, Viking Knit, fine silver fusing, Kumihimo, and glass bead making.
Although we like to explore what others have done, we feel that all of our designs reflect a little bit of us, especially our love of travel. Our travels have taken us all over the United States and even into parts of Europe. We make it a practice to check out local bead shops as we search for the unusual and different bead or finding. In many of these shops we've found a variety of jewelry components such as Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, Czech glass, lampwork glass, borosilicate glass, sterling silver, copper, antique bronze, and gunmetal. By combining these components we've developed eclectic designs ranging from simple bead stringing to bead weaving, metal working and mixed media, resulting in both contemporary and traditional works of art.
