Get to Know
I have been beading most of my life and probably will be for my entire life. I love to make jewelry and have worked hard to be a jack of all trades. My first passion is wire wrapping. I have had a necklace published in "Step by Step Jewelry" and in an online book. I am level 1 certified in Art Clay and am currently learning to make lampwork beads. There are more rocks in my house than I could wrap in a life time.
I opened Lotus Beads, a brick and mortar store in the Village of Castleton, NY over 5 years ago. Otis the pug is our store mascot. The store was, and still is, well know for quality products, exceptional prices and excellent customer service. We recently closed the brick and mortar store due to health issues, but now we are open 24 hours a day online. Although the store is closed, we are still having classes, hangouts and meetups at the store. Be sure to check out our classes if you are in the area.
All the items in my store have been hand selected by me. I search for the best deals to be found. Your satisfaction as a customer is important to me. Please let us know if there is any way that we may improve our store to better meet your needs.
Items may be picked up at my home or the store in the Schodack, NY area, about 7 miles south of Albany on the Eastern side of the Hudson River.
We look forward to meeting your jewelry making needs. Thanks for stopping by.
