Quick Blurb

I love to create one of a kind beaded jewelry that defines the person who wears it.

Interests

I live by one the Great Lakes and I'm sure that affects my spirit and my perception of shapes and colors. As a kid I would pick up beach glass because I loved its muted tones and wave washed smoothness. And now that it's hard to find because we don't use glass in packaging any more, I wish that I had saved some!

What I do takes time and thought because I want each piece to be special. If something should come up that's a concern please contact me so that we can try to work it out. I want this to be a happy experience on both sides.

Get to Know

I like to make stuff. I stumbled onto beading many years ago when looking for a Christmas gift for my youngest son. Wanting to give him something he could use his creativity on, I stepped into my first bead shop. After watching he and his friend make beaded macrame jewelry all winter, I went back to that bead shop for myself.
I started with wraparound necklaces and bracelets using Memory Wire which I gave away. And as they say, one thing led to another! One thing I love about making beaded jewelry is that the possibilities seem endless. My necklaces for women grew to include gorgeous multi-strands (a labor of love!), long wraparounds and harmonica necklaces.
And thanks to the persuasion of that son I added a line for men which includes beaded bracelets, necklaces and ankle bracelets, my best seller!
In the last few years, health issues have slowed me down, but haven't stopped me. I have a large inventory and still add new pieces when I can. Unfortunately, I can no longer make jewelry to order or re-size.
