About

Just call me a seed bead and fiber enthusiast. I find both of these mediums very creatively exciting.

I rediscovered my love affair with beads in 2001 while recuperating from a major surgery. Although this affair began in my childhood, learning off-loom bead weaving techniques was new to me. I quickly fell in love!

I began my journey as Twisted Sistah Beads by making and selling jewelry, especially my one of a kind bead crocheted necklaces and lariats. Not wanting to turn creating jewelry into a job, I transitioned to a seller and cheerleader for all Japanese seed beads.

Since 2003, I have traveled around the US selling my beady wares at bead shows, fiber shows and quilt shows. I hope I offer excitement and inspiration to the numerous fellow bead enthusiasts I meet along the way.

In my Etsy shop, I will feature limited quantities of the quality, unique items that I am unable to take on my travels, including some of my finished jewelry.

As much as I like traveling for my business, there is no place like home. When I’m not on the road or working on some of the more mundane aspects of running a business, I like playing with my beads and designing new projects.

Welcome to the Twisted Sistah Beads Etsy shop!

As the owner of my business, I am the cook, bottle washer, and jack-of-all-trades. However, I wouldn’t trade this for the world. Along with being a seed bead and fiber enthusiast, I also enjoy cooking [or should I say eating], reading, hanging out with family and friends, and cuddling with my cat.

Opening an Etsy shop is new adventure for me, so please bear with me as we start this journey together. Please feel to convo me with any questions, concerns and suggestions.

Please keep in mind that I spend at least half the year on the road vending at shows. That slows down my processing and shipping of orders as it has become extremely difficult to ship while traveling. I do, however, always endeavor to ship orders as quickly as humanly possible. If you ever have any concerns or questions about shipping, please convo me.

Happy Beading! Thanks for stopping by!
