Get to Know

I've always been a creative person but about 13 years ago I discovered by love of beads. I started making beaded wire for decorating wine and champagne glasses but soon moved to earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. I am completely self taught and have yet to meet a technique I couldn't learn. I love to challenge myself. In July, 2012 I was published for the first time. I have had several other pieces published and continuing submitting for publication on a regular basis. 2013 is turning out to be an exciting year! I did my first wholesale/trade show in April and met many wonderful people, as well as a mentor to guide me through this new venture. I may have even picked up a major retailor in my area...I will share more details when available! I am very excited about this next step.

On a personal note, I am also a happy wife and very proud mother of a teenage daughter and grown up son. I am also doting mom to several fur babies...it's a good life!
