I have been beading since the mid-1990s and am self-taught. In the beginning, I mainly used Bead&Button magazine and made some of their many projects until I learned enough techniques and stitches to begin designing my own things. I enjoy making beaded projects using different stitches and styles and rarely make the same design twice. I rarely sell my pieces. I decided to start making earrings and barrettes to sell in October 2021.
I love to see other bead artists' work and share ideas and techniques.
I will consider bespoke, as well. Just message me!
