I create handmade beaded jewelry using a variety of weaving, wrapping, stitching and stringing techniques. The media includes glass beads, gemstones, wood beads, bone beads, pearls, crystals, leather and metals. I love playing with colors and textures, designing pieces that will appeal to a variety of ages and gender styles. I try to be considerate of those who struggle with fasteners and clasps and vary my pieces to include magnet closures or materials that stretch. My booth includes many styles of bracelets, earrings, necklaces and watches. I absolutely love going to art shows and festivals, interacting with customers and hearing about what they like and don’t like when wearing jewelry. Nearly every occasion, I not only get to share my craft but also learn from them, working to create new and unique pieces to share in the future.
