I started beading many years ago by learning how
to weave seed beads with thread into bracelets
and necklaces. I progressed to weaving
beaded vessels, and finally small tapestries.
This kind of beading
is slow and repetitive work. Perhaps that is why I like it.
patterns emerge as the thread joins the beads together
is always a pleasure, and I find it quite soothing.
When I'm not weaving seed beads, I never have a
problem finding an abundance of beautiful beads
to string onto wire to form unique and wonderful
jewelry. And since the beading community is
always coming up with different ways of using
beads, I am never at a loss for new techniques
Since I have so much beadwork to show, I present
it here in three categories. A slide show
of finished projects in each category can be
found by clicking on one of the titles below.
