I am a visual artist who came to love beading through my daughter, Amy, who taught me everything I know.
Besides being totally addicted to beads (I never met a bead I didn’t like, and, you should see my wall of beads). I have always felt that jewelry making was/is as much a fine art as painting or drawing, just a different medium. I bring to my jewelry making all that I learned as an artist, and my jewelry work feeds back into my paintings (I have included beads and thread in some of my mixed media pieces).
It’s great to be part of a community of beaders, so to everyone I say a hearty “hello” and “nice to meet you.”
