Fifteen Years ago, I retired as a Recreational
Therapist and moved from urban life to a horse
ranch in northern California .  Six years later, a horse
mishap (plus a live long creative interest) initiated
my taking beading/jewelry classes at Perlz in
Kelseyville. This began my creative adventure in the
wonderful world of beads. Classes, inspiring
teachers, gorgeous technique books, magazines
and even a kit or two have fueled my 'bead' addiction

BeadUnique magazine published my first piece,
Forever Flowers Handmade Pendant, in 2008.  Later
issues featured: Kissing Fish (Summer 2009), Sea
Foam Scissors Pouch, beaded embroidery (Summer
2010) and Black Lace (Winter 2010).   Being
published never gets 'old' as it is always a thrill to be
recognized and share what I create.  Soon, in
BeadUnique magazine my Victorian necklace will be
displayed as part of their 'Bead Challenge' by the BU

Striving to improve my skills I continue attend
beading retreats and classes.  Beautiful beads of all
sizes, shapes and colors inspire me.    I hope you
enjoy the results of my creativity.
