Bead Embroidered Jewelry

Needle, thread and fabric became part of my life at a young age. Knitting and crocheting followed, then making porcelain dolls which needed earrings and a few beads on their clothes, but it was later in life that I spent time around a table with women who played with beads in the form of weaving and embroidery. Now I play with beads too. Nearly all of my jewelry is OOAK, unplanned and unrevealing until a piece says it is done.  Cuffs, abstract and bigger than life are my favorites. Custom orders are available as well as freeform.
