Meet the Artist

"Attention to detail, high-quality craftsmanship, and beautiful embellishments make each of her pieces a work of art."

I began my business in 1989 making heirloom clothing and Christening gowns for children. In those delicate pieces, the art was in the stitching and execution of other people's designs. After a few years of that, I began to wish I could branch out and create my own designs. I studied fabric dyeing and surface design with a friend, and a new business was born. I made wearable art clothing for adult women and sold them successfully at shows up and down the Eastern coast. I added beading to my clothing designs, and soon my business morphed into one of art jewelry.

Entirely self-taught, I've been making beaded jewelry in my home studio since 2004, specializing in complex beadweaving and bead embroidery.

In December 2009, I added polymer clay to my materials arsenal. Making jewelry using the millefiori, or caning, process is very exciting and fulfilling. I build colorful beads and jewelry which I sell on my website, and at craft shows.

Years ago, an accident provided me an opportunity to explore the process of creating jewelry as works of art. From the early days of simply stringing beads together to make pretty patterns, to currently using polymer clay as a basis for spectacularly beaded wearable art, each day I spend in my studio is a joyful experience.
