I've been a lampwork beadmaker since 1992. Three years ago I took leave of my senses and opened a bead store in Napa, California, lol. It's been a wild and wonderful ride. I'm currently enlarging my online store and downsizing the walk-in store. No matter how much I tried to deny it I miss the torch and am hoping to carve out some time to return to it as well as carve out an income. If I have time to cook the occasional dinner and mop the kitchen floor, all the better!
I do many types of beading but my biggest loves in jewelrymaking are metalsmithing, chainmaille, and, of course, beadmaking.
