I am a bead and lapidary artist working in stone, metal, & beads
I have been creating jewelry for many years, and I love experimenting with new techniques, combining techniques, and creating my own designs. Everything I make is truly one of a kind.
I’m mainly a self-taught artist, although I’ve taken a few classes throughout the years to learn specific skills. Art has always been a passion of mine, and although it’s not my full-time gig (yet!), I think my love of the arts helps me in my main career as a website designer and developer. Design, color, and photography are all important aspects of website development, and I love that I can incorporate some type of design work in each and every day.
I teach classes!
I love sharing my passion for creativity and the tips and techniques I’ve developed with others who are interested in developing their skills. Contact me for more information or to schedule a class.
- Bead stitching and off-loom stitching (peyote stitch, square stitch, herringbone stitch, and others)
- Bead crochet
- Basic jewelry making
- Kumihimo Japanese braiding
It may take longer, but everything I make is completely hand made. I don’t use pre-made ring cores, bezels, or bails, so every piece is truly one of a kind.
