Get to Know

In the late 1980's I fell in love with Southwestern style, swingy, fringed, seedbeaded earrings. So I bought an instruction book, beads, needles and Nymo thread and immediately became addicted to beadweaving. I also design and make strung pieces and recently I have started to learn polymer clay techniques, but off-loom weaving will always be my first love and passion. A lot of my designs incorporate more than one technique just to keep things interesting. I love playing with color and texture and my work seems to be constantly evolving. I also design and create silk floral work but due to shipping issues, those items will probably be kept to a minimum in my on-line shops.
