What inspires you as a designer-artist? I get inspired by almost anything. Sometimes I see a certain bead, color or combination and it just speaks to me.
What medium do you work with mostly? I love to work with natural beads, shells, glass beads, acrylics--almost anything. I would love to learn more about metal work and wire wrapping.
What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story? Elegance in Bloom Y Necklace
What inspired this design? The shell beads and Czech crystals just "told" me what they wanted to be.
How did it come together? I just started wiring the blooms together, adding the crystals and freshwater pearls, it more or less created itself. I love the contrast of the creamy pearls with the color of the crystals.
Why did you become enchanted with this style of jewelry-making? Beads and designs just come together sometimes with amazing results. Often times, the beads tell me what they want to become.
