I started making jewelry many, many years ago. I just became fascinated with beads. Back in my youth, I started with the acrylic beads then I fell in love with gemstones. Most of my work is with gemstones; however, I also will create items from glass, shell and wood. I am very fond of wood beads also. I am a one person operation and have my little corner of my house to do my creating in. Making beaded jewelry is a passion for me. I do all the selecting of the stones, the design to the finished product. All done by me. I love creating designs with beads. Most of my designs and beadwork are for men's jewelry. However, I do make items for women.
