~About The Artist~
my life I've been a "bead freak"...it all started when I was a kid
making things out of plastic beads. Sometime around 2000 (if not
started designing jewelry for family and friends and occasionally
setting up a table at a few local craft shows. After that, well,
here's a blunt timeline:
Fall 2005 - I
started with polymer clay, but got discouraged - packed it up and dove
into the world of hot glass. Lampwork beads, fusing, slumping...
Winter 2007 - I stepped back to re-teach myself basic crochet stitches,
and progressed to knitting also.
Early 2008 - I pulled
out the polymer clay again. I
started with making beads of all shapes and sizes, then ventured into
making canes, and now I do a little sculpting as well. I'm also
on a few mosaic projects using handmade tiles.
January 2009 - I've
been distracted by chain maille jewelry lately!
