I love to create with beads because of the many colors, materials, shapes, and sizes. Add to this the many connectors, settings, metals, and possible outcomes.
I came to beading late in life. I had always been fascinated with stone beads (with their many natural colors) and wanted to start beading many years ago, but it was hard to find bead shops.
I was inspired one day when we came across a bead shop while on vacation and stopped in. What I did not expect was that my husband, Richard, would also be inspired.
We discovered so many types of beads that we had no idea existed: Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones (Hematite fascinates me), seed beads, metals, acrylics, and so many more! They come as bicones, flats, rounds, large, small…so many sizes and shapes WOW. We were hooked!
I hope you enjoy our pieces as much as we enjoyed creating them.
