Introduce Yourself:

Color drives me. I enjoy finding new beads with great colors and mixing them to create one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art. I think my style is mostly modern and fresh, and I am most proud of my knitted necklaces. I use lots of color with both gem beads and glass beads to help create eye-catching pieces.

Share Your Background:

I first started beading as a way to relax and unwind after a day at work. I was newly separated after a long 17-year marriage and wanted to find something that would allow me to forget my troubles. Beading was just the thing! I could unwind and create great things to wear to work. I found Fire Mountain Gems and Beads through an internet search. Since then, I shop there all the time! I even inspired my mother to start beading and she shops at Fire Mountain Gems and Beads, too!

Beading Success!

Jewelry-making is a great fit for me. I am able to be creative and explore new ideas and techniques while making a small side income. My necklaces are sold currently in Florida and I enjoy making and creating new ones each day!
