My Bio

 

 I have been beading for over 16 years and teaching beading for about 8 years. I especially love Japanese seed beads in size 11 and size 15. Not a delica fan but maybe someday... I especially love teaching other people about beading.

I teach the following stitches/projects: peyote, brick, netting, St Petersberg chain, spiral rope, dutch spiral, beaded pens, beaded Christmas ornaments, earrings, pouches, necklaces, bracelets - just about anything beaded, I have tried it.

I have had 7 articles published by Jewelry Crafts Magazine and one by Bead & Button Magazine.
