"I have been making beaded jewelry in Austin,Texas for over 30 years. I first began my journey of creating my jewelry buying beads from African Traders. During this time I helped found the Austin Bead Society. I soon quit my full time job and made jewelry design my career. Now I work in a variety of beads including gemstones, freshwater pearls, vintage and contemporary glass and crystal beads from around the world, as well as lampwork beads all accented with sterling, vermeil, gold filled, copper and brass findings. Most of my designs are one of a kind. My ultimate goal is to create a quality piece of wearable art at an affordable price."
