I am a self-taught bead crafter. I began beading 10 years ago after attending a Native American art festival in Denver, Colorado. I was so impressed with the beautiful beadwork I felt I had to learn how to do it. I bought a few books and with a lot of patience and frustration, learned the basics. Since then my work has evolved. I design most of my pieces and have been told by many kind people that they are works of art. Beads are my passion and I love the creative process. Daryl Hannah, the late Dennis Weaver and his lovely wife, and Jane Seymour have commissioned me. I have sold many pieces to retail stores in the Florida Keys, Arizona, Texas and Colorado.
