Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog! I’m a seed beader, interested in the visual arts in general — I will be writing some about what I do, and some about what I see and learn. I have a website, if you’d like to see a few examples of my work that I’ve done since 2002. I completely redid my website about a week ago, and that seemed a perfect time to start a blog as well.

I made a coworker very happy today. She had admired a pair of my earrings, and she commissioned me to make a pair for her. I designed these, and my instructions were in the December 2007 Bead & Button. She chose the color of the Swarovski open square that she wanted, and then chose the Delica from the colors I brought in for her to see. This is how I brought them to work today:


I temporarily put gold findings on one, and silver on the other. I agreed with her that gold was better, and finished them at lunch. She wore them the rest of the day….

(In case you’re curious, that’s DB604 – perfect match to Sahara Swarovski. And, to those of you who have mastered photographing Swarovski, you continue to have my respect!)

Thanks for coming!

  1. Wonderful work and website! I love the Bead Quilt Square you made. Keep up the great job! Also, thanks for linking to my blog! I really appreciate that. Please stop by anytime. Cheers from Boston:)

  2. Hey, thanks! I saw the Bead Quilt in person, it’s an amazing thing to see (I helped bring it to Minneapolis.) — and to watch people’s reactions to it.

    I enjoy reading your blog, I do so regularly. Can’t wait to see the background you choose….
