About

Ever Changing, Never Boring

I am self-taught though I was never a crafter or anything like that. When I was younger, much younger, I wanted to be a fashion designer and would make clothes for my Barbie dolls from old socks. I would even call myself "sketching" designs. But I wasn't patient enough or interested enough in arts and crafts to make anything stick - or so I thought.

In 2001, while in Washington, DC and between jobs (as I always seemed to be at that time), I wandered into a bead store in Dupont Circle, bought a random collection of beads and findings, and grabbed a handy dandy crib sheet. That night, I made my very first pair of simple beaded fish hook dangles and felt like my whole life had been waiting for that moment.

Since starting my Etsy shop in 2007, I've gone from basic beading to metal work to incorporating lace and African fabrics as I've tried to develop my own unique voice. Recently, I discovered soutache - an old textile art that combines colorful woven, flat thread with beads. This unique process allows me to create bold, colorful, beaded beauties that are functional enough to wear everyday, while keeping your style as independent as you are. .
