 ​​I have been a stay at home mom for many years and I have always dabbled in art.  Once my children left for college I began searching the internet for a new art media to play with.  I stumbled upon a beautiful cuff that had gems stones and tiny seed beads hand sewn in fabulous patterns... this was something I had to learn. I have always been fascinated with the Native American Indian culture and jewelry so I would say that has influenced my work as well as nature. As a certified Master Gardener, I​ love nature and being out side. In nature, nothing is ever duplicated. Every flower, bug, and animal is different in some aspect. So in my beadwork nothing is ever the same.  All my designer jewelry is one of a kind and handmade with high quality seed beads, gem stones and crystals. I have even done some competing and have been published in a few magazines.  My work is also on display at The Artist Showplace in Dallas, TX .

​Thank you for you interest and I hope you enjoy my designs!
