Making. Hand-work. Creating 3-D wearable art satisfies a deep need to bring together beautiful, colorful, joyful beads from across time and cultures to create something new and fresh. I research the origin stories of the materials used in my work. I hand-weave leather wrap bracelets using vintage beads, freshwater pearls, ethnic handmade beads, crystal, semi-precious stones, metal, hematite, copper, and anything I find that looks beautiful. I love what I do and weave that love into each and every bracelet.
