Richmond, VT, United States
It's all about fun, patterns and COLOR! From deepest violet and brilliant orange to neutral earth tones, I love them all!
Making things, using fabric, paper, beads. Noticing designs and patterns. Decorating rooms, cookies, packages. Reading good books, watching good tv/movies, eating good food. Traveling. Chocolate. Mustn't forget the chocolate.

You may know me. I'm that person who loves art fairs, craft festivals, and all those fun shops displaying all sorts of handmade art and jewelry. I'm the one who frequently sees something and says "I bet I could make that!" But usually I just end up buying it and supporting my fellow artisans.
Since college I've made beaded earrings, bracelets and necklaces, occasionally selling in local shops but now with Town of Beadrock I have a place to showcase my work and usually giving my work as gifts or keeping it for myself. Scrapbooking, quilting and beading all attract me because of the variety of colors and patterns that can be combined into imaginative designs. Art has always been a part of my life, whether while teaching kindergarten as an adult or when as a child I loved to needlepoint, use my wooden beading loom, make embroidery floss friendship bracelets, and of course make fun colorful designs with my beloved Spirograph. I still have lots of papers, fabric, beads and even crayons on hand because, well, who can resist the smell of a new box of crayons?
While I am thankful to designer Chan Luu for popularizing this style, I knew I was up for the challenge of making my own versions. I enjoy using a variety of bead sizes for my wraps; some feature small (approx. 4mm) beads while others have a chunky design. I've tried to include lots of variety both in color as well as in shape and size of the beads/bracelets to provide something for everyone as I incorporate my own ideas into the designs.
I hope to provide lots of one-of-a-kind pieces as well, and more items to come like earrings and necklaces that will share the same wearable, fun, a bit rustic yet still classy esthetic.
Thanks for visiting!
It is highly unusual for me to make a bracelet more than twice, if that. But this one is quite popular, probably because it's very unique and goes with absolutely everything. This is the fourth and probably final "Festivus" bracelet.
A stained glass heart pendant, inspired by a local stained glass artist who specializes in amazing stained glass pet portraits. I asked her if she could cut some hearts for me to make into necklaces on suede cord.
Freshwater pearls on rustic leather. Fancy or casual? Both.
My original design using gemstone cube beads stacked between the leather to make a mosaic pattern and create a wide band cuff style bracelet.
