About

Finely curated selection of precious and semi precious gemstones

I grew up as a classically trained pianist and oboist in the wonderful Pacific Northwest and have always appreciated being surrounded by all types of art-- fine, folk, audio, visual, sensory, etc. I received my BA in music performance at The Juilliard School and my MA in the same field from Indiana University. Being an oboe major for that many years meant that I was constantly making my own reeds (mouth pieces made out of specially grown cane for the oboe) and doing things with my hands. So when I finally decided to stop playing the oboe and pursue a career in fundraising, I took up jewelry making so I can continue working with my hands!

The Busy Little Beads started out as an overstock store for the gems that I did not use in my creations, but it has gradually grown into a collection of gorgeous gemstone finds that I want to share with my clients and friends. I am so obsessed with gems that I even ask for them for birthday and anniversary presents, much to my husband's chagrin, because the things that I like do not tend to come at a lower price!

I hope to share my beautiful gems with you-- please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions!!
