I started beading about 10 years ago and learned at my own pace. I now apply to several art shows a year. I keep practicing, and trying to learn whatever I can about beading and jewelry making. I take classes whenever I get a chance, and enjoy finding patterns, and ideas that I can make flourish into attractive forms of artwork. I like to expand my ideas into other projects, and pieces of jewelry. I enjoy learning new ways to design, what beads to use, and how each item will look when completed, and why someone would like to wear my art.
