As long as I can remember, I have always been interested in color, design and nature. I have a degree in Textiles, Clothing and Related Arts from Michigan State.

In 1996, my husband and I were transferred to Singapore and lived and traveled all overAsiawhile we were there for five years. I joined a Museum Study Group to meet other women and little did I know that it would take me on a beading journey. I was asked to research and do a presentation on the history of beads.

My research opened my eyes into the world of beads and I started collecting at every country we visited and still always go to bead stores wherever I travel and search for the unusual. I have taken jewelry classes in Singapore, Michigan, Boston, Tucson,and Atlanta.

This is a hobby for me that I enjoy sharing with others. I love to donate to our local charity fundraisers, show at Bowen Center For The Arts and do custom orders. Ten percent of my sales is donated to The Smile Train to help children around the world.
