I am a self taught bead artist living in Sonoma County CA. I have been selling my beaded creations since 1998. My current work (primarily an earring collection) is made completely with Swarovski bicone crystals and 24k yellow or white gold plated glass seed beads.
Bead weaving creates a fabric which can be supple and flexible or quite firm and strong. I weave each piece for beauty, strength and longevity. I want to make sure that it will wear well over time.
