Get to Know

Hi, my name is Sandy and I am a victim of beautiful beads. I have spent years scouring bead shops and conventions for pretty beads and now have quite a collection. I find, however, when I'm working on a piece of jewelry I usually do not have quite the right bead to bring the project together and out I goâEUR¦hunting and gathering...again.

In the past my artistic expressions were in watercolor, home decorating, retail merchandizing and store design. Then my sister-in-law introduced me to beading. I remember entering my first bead store with her and feeling overwhelmed. I purchased one focal bead. That very first bead eventually grew into a necklace and has since been sold. I have truly found my medium in crafting custom jewelry. I take pride in creating very wearable pieces that reflect my sense of esthetics.

Thanks for visiting my ArtFire studio!
