This Week: Dollar Days are back with a special Under a Buck section!
Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I have been making jewelry for about 6 years. In addition to jewelry making I am an avid cross-stitcher. Making things with my hands is very soothing and helps me to unwind after my work day. I am always on the lookout for new ideas, color combinations, and inspiration.

I have my degree in Clinical Psychology and by day I am a therapist/care manager for an insurance company. I spend my days on the phone assisting people who struggle with mental illness, physical ailments, and everything in between find resources and gain access to needed services. Beading and anything crafty helps me to relax after a long day.

I have been happily married for 3 yrs (although all together we have been together for 10yrs) and have two wonderful furry, four legged children. I have 2 neices and a nephew – one of my neices and my nephew live close by so I see them often – and my nephew is becoming quite the budding jewelry maker himself.

    Love the rustic feel

  • Leigh D commented on the Design “Rustic Butterfly”   4 years, 3 months ago

    Very pretty – I really like the mix of beads and fiber

  • Leigh D commented on the Design “Patina Copper Earring”   4 years, 6 months ago

    These are awesome! I would wear them in a heartbeat!!!!!

  • Leigh D commented on the Design “Shimmer”   5 years, 4 months ago

    Thanks for the awesome feedback – I am really trying to experiment more with fibers and leather – and get away from my trademark, dressier gemstone pieces. It is a bit nerve wracking wondering if others will like them
