I began making jewelry in 2008, primarily for myself. What started as a little hobby has grown into a small business that I run in addition to my day job as a librarian.
I especially love working with Vintaj brass (and their other products) and Czech glass. I also have a pretty big stash of art beads and gemstones that I have to get over hoarding and start using more.
I’m still fairly new to all this, but love the idea that there is a community of fellow beaders out there!

Thanks for the kind words… I’m blushing as pink as my poppy pendant! The Bead Cruise is amazing! Heather Powers (of Humblebeads fame) organizes it every year… amazing jewelry classes and cruising in the Caribbean, what could be better?! http://www.beadcruise.com/
