Up Bead Art

Danville, California | 7 Sales

Announcement    Welcome to my Etsy shop! I search out focal beads made by women and from my travels and up-bead them into one-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelets using my excellent eye for color. In addition to the pieces in my shop, I create custom pieces. Remember that it takes 5 to 40 hours to create a piece. It's a pleasure to create something special and I'm willing to work to get it "just right". Both necklaces and bracelets have to be just the right length, so I am happy to adjust if necessary. I chose the the name Up Bead Art, because I usually up-bead the work of others, and because it's a play on up-beat....which I am, especially when I bead! Please note that from October 25 to December 27 my work will be on display at the Moraga Art Gallery in Moraga CA. So please check to see if an item is still available.
Who the heck am I? A retired University Professor of Physical Therapy, who lived in Asia for 6 years, and Mexico City for 4 before moving to Walnut Creek, CA. I've traveled extensively, and one of my favorite things to do is attend hands on cooking schools-9 so far in Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Mexico, France, Italy, and Vermont!
My MOST favorite thing to do is sing! I'm a 4-part acapella singer with 28 years of experience singing in choruses and quartets. My last quartet won first place in the open division of the World Choir Games in 2012..
And I love to golf, even though I'm not very good at it. I AM good at the Rules of Golf, though, and am a certified golf Rules Official with 2 organizations.
So there you have it, both disciplined and creative!
