Medium: Beaded jewelry and hair accessories


About me: I love working with beads because they afford me a means of self-expression that has infinite possibilities. I am drawn to beads because they come in every color of the rainbow and beyond, because they sparkle and come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes.

I love “playing” with beads – by combining bright colors, shapes and textures, I can create designs that are unique, fun and playful. I do not stick to one style or design – I love to experiment with patterns, and the result is versatile jewelry that can be worn for any occasion.

All of my pieces are hand fabricated, including bracelets, earrings and necklaces. I also create hair accessories in the form of barrettes and bobby pins. I use a variety of materials, including crystal, Czech glass, freshwater pearls, seed beads, semi-precious stones, and silver and gold accents.
