many years, I have been a painter and craft artist. During the past
eight years, I have become passionately involved with making beaded
jewelry. My involvement began by chance. I was in a small bead store
in Vancouver and happened to see beading classes were available
and this really appealed to me, so I signed up. Convinced that I
could make beaded jewelry, I bought some beads and thread and off
I found myself buying every available book on beading and tried
a variety of techniques, settling on beaded art such as 3D work
and lace collars. I promised myself that each piece would be special
and one of a kind, making the wearer of my art proud.
"Working with beads is similar to painting for me; it satisfies
my ongoing love of working with color, texture and detail."
