About

COME SHARE A LOVE OF BEADS WITH ME!!!

I have been beading and designing for over 20 years and teaching beading for about 19 years. I especially love Japanese seed beads in size 11 and size 15. I wasn't a delica fan but I have finally found delicas in my designing. I have a new found love for them that I never expected to have. I especially love teaching other people about beading.

Experience in the area:
I teach the following stitches/projects: peyote, brick, netting, St Petersberg chain, spiral rope, dutch spiral, beaded pens, beaded Christmas ornaments, earrings, pouches, necklaces, bracelets, doilies - just about anything beaded, I have tried it.

Present Day:
Currently, I design patterns and make kits for beading projects. Check out - violetbead.com There is a gallery of my work there. I teach seed beading at The Beadman in Redding. The facebook page can be found here: http://www.beadman.net

I love the feel and the colors of beads. They sparkle and entrance you. They are very addicting. Stitch I need to learn more about is Ndebele. I will when I have a project that "needs" it. I can do it but don't feel proficient with it yet, also more about sculptural peyote.
