Strung - Way Beyond Pearls

I have an innate sense of color and am known for creating jewelry in interesting and pleasing color combinations. I am intrigued by the endless possibilities of color combinations that working with glass beads allows. I combine colorful glass beads in various intricate patterns and designs to create jewelry.  

Much of my work uses sculptural and off-loom weaving techniques. I create `beaded beads' that are used in many of my pieces, by weaving small glass seed beads around an inner bead.  I further embellish these beads by weaving in larger beads into the structure.
