I have been beading since 2008 and after dabbling with other artistic endeavours, beads were love at first sight.
I love stringing, bead weaving, wire work and chain maille. I do bead embroidery for Native Pow Wow regalia as well as medieval reenactment costumes.
Bead Swaps are like Christmas for me - you never know what you're going to get and I eagerly wait for the mail man until they arrive!
Favorite colors: Red and purple are my favourites but I like just about anything.
Allergies: I can't wear earwires containing nickel.
Favorite metals: Gold is my favorite, but I like silver, copper or
antique brass as well. I love toggle clasps.
Earrings: I don't often wear huge or really long earrings, but I
would for a special occasion or just to be daring. I like to have colour and fun in my earrings.
Bracelets: Any style is fine from strung to bead weaving to metal.
Necklaces: Also any style. I don't like chokers or very short necklaces.
Materials: I love any type of jasper. I'm not fussy about pearls unless they are an interesting colour. Filigree or interesting natural elements really excite me.
