Quick Blurb

Hi, I'm Francie. I make and design jewelry. My primary focus is intricate beadwork, but I also love to work with fused glass.

Skills and Techniques

I am well-versed in techniques using bead weaving, fused glass, polymer clay, and metalwork. I've even studied with a South African artist to learn traditional Zulu beading methods. In addition to jewelry, my other artistic endeavors include fabric dyeing, fiber art, and painting in acrylics and watercolors.

Get to Know

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Comparative Religion from Keyon College and a Master's Degree in Art from the University of Indianapolis. Eclectic, vibrant, and intricately detailed, my jewelry designs include a variety of new and traditional media.

I work most often from my home studio, but I also share studio space with my mother at the Stutz Building in downtown Indianapolis. My art has been sold in dozens of galleries and shows over the past ten years.

Here, I offer select jewelry designs in limited quantities. New designs will be added over time as fast as I can create them. I welcome custom orders. Each piece is hand-made and held to the highest standard of quality; each piece a work of wearable art.
