Hi...and thanks so much for stopping by my little store here at ArtFire!

I think in some way I have always been drawn to "creating" things. Whether it was etching wood or creating words in poetry. Since I can remember I have always enjoyed seeing things come to life!

Now after 10+ years creating my own jewelry line and I have found a new outlet for my creativity and that's sourcing gemstone beads, findings and cabochons for others.

California Beads grew out of my own love of gemstones and my eagerness to help others find the joy that I have in jewelry design.

My natural attraction for the endless array of gemstones colors and textures is a love that I don't think I'll ever loose...not that I would ever want too:)
