My interest in bead weaving began in 1994 when a complementary copy of Bead & Button Magazine, Issue 1, arrived in my mail. I grew up in an extended family of makers and had enjoyed many forms of art and craft, with stained glass and needlework my main focuses at the time. Seeing the bead work in that inaugural issue shifted my creative world to beads!
I've been extremely fortunate over the years to hone my skills by taking classes with many of the top beading teachers, mastering stitches, picking up tips, and developing my own designing and teaching style. I began designing in 2004 and teaching beading at several stores in the Atlanta metro area. I've taught at the Bead & Button Show, and at BeadFest. I'll be teaching two of my latest designs at BeadFest Philly in August 2014.
