My Bio

I have been beading for quite a few years now, nothing spectacular, mostly magnetic lariats and bracelets with matching earrings. I learned chain making from a wonderful book that I borrowed from a friend and "fell in love" and started adding those to my bead work. Then I took several classes on wire wrapping and incorporated that into my work. So now I have beads, wire, stones and gems, quite a collection, but I wasn't satisfied. This year, 2008, I took a class on using precious metal clay and wha-la!!!!!! That has drawn it all together for me. Now I have added dichroic cabs and cubic zirconia's to my collection. Now I don't have enough hours in the day to "play" with the clay and see the finished result just a few hours away with firing. I want to learn to make my own dichroic cabs and enameled beads and findings.......I guess the pandora's box has been opened wide and all the things I have been missing has tumbled out to make my work complete. I hope to have some examples of my pieces soon...... after I learn how to put the pic's on the computer that is.......but thats a whole nuther world  (lol)
