 Fiber Art Bracelets

Exploring with fibers has been a new experience to play with. I am always looking for something new and fun to bead upon and found it! Creating these hand felted pieces with many different types of fibers and material has been another creative way to explore more texture and interest into my beadwork.

 Pocket Full Posie

Creative way to use these special shell pockets. They work perfect for filling and tucking in unique hand carved shell flowers and other beads creating a beautiful flower bouquet…becoming a light weight wearable unique piece of art.

Bead Blessing to all of you.  Looking forward to another year full of creativity and sharing what I love to do you you!


My Journey continues:  

 Last year was  so amazing and extremely busy.  I did so much traveling and mastering the packing lots of heavy suitcases. 

I love my job and feel so  honored to share what I love to do with each on of you in all the workshops. I want to thank all of you that spent hours of creative time with me!

Now that I am home for few months allowing me to focus on getting orgnaized in my studio and creating lots of new ideas to share. 

2017 is going to be another busy year and I have chosen to teach more workshops and retreat in my home studio. They have been a huge success and am so grateful to all of you.  I am amazed on how many of you travel so far away to attend. 

One of my goals is to finish my book!  So I will need to stay home for this undertaking.

I am also working on some art pieces for upcoming completion's, articles for publication and gallery showings.

Yes, I am busy lady doing everything for my business by myself.  (no employees) It is a lot of work preparing for workshops....making designs, creating my own one-of-kind kits , writing instructions and  also keeping up on my  etsy site. I almost have even mastered doing my own web-site.  But, I Love It!

My current schedule is now posted and registration is open for workshops


Now offering Private classes in my home studio and I will also travel to you. 


So again, I thank you all for your continued support and look forward to our paths crossing soon.

Beading comes from my soul.  I try to allow each bead to speak through its color, size, shape, and texture.  I never draw anything by hand.  In the end, these pieces seem to come alive with the natural heartbeat of nature."
