Skills and Techniques

I grew up in a house that always did crafts. As a kid I was fascinated by sequins, beads and felt. Time went by and things changed, kids came and there was no time. After the kids got in school I started working at a craft store where the art of French Flower Beading was taught. I was hooked and I became addicted to working with seed beads. I then started working with seed beads on a loom. Of course the beads then got bigger and I started making jewelry. Now I love to sew and embroidery.

Get to Know

I love to create. Jewelry, Quilled cards and now I am pursuing my dream of sewing and embroidery. I love to say "this is handmade" and have a always been a craft artisan. I have few favorites though. Beadwork
Chain Maille
Quilling
Polymer Clay
QUILLING - I have been quilling for about 7 years. I love to make cards and decorated mats for pictures. BEADWORK - I have been working with beads for 30 something years. I have always enjoyed working with seed beads and I started making Beaded flower arrangements after working at the Tortoise Shell in Idaho Falls, a shop that was owned by "Sam" Ellis. I keep exploring new things in jewelry and beadwork. I am now trying to focus on split loom necklaces (back to my seed beads). CHAIN MAILLE -I fell in love with chain maille several years ago. I have been learning new weaves in chain maille but my favorite weave is the Byzantine weave. POLYMER CLAY - This in my new interested. It is amazing what can be done with polymer clay. Someday I will be good enough to show my creations.
