I’ve had a love of “playing” with beads since I was a child going through my Mom’s costume jewelry drawer. I love making making all kinds of jewelry, from stringing, seed bead weaving to metalsmithing, bending wire & flameworking glass beads.
After retiring from 30 yrs. working in the Automotive Industry, I worked 5 years in a local Bead Store, where I began to teach classes in jewelry making. I still teach at various venues in the Metro Detroit area.
I continue to take classes and workshops to improve my skills and learn from all the great artists who teach - I want to learn it all!
I’m an active volunteer of two local guilds. The Southeast Michigan Glass Beadmakers Guild (SMGBG) as elected Secretary. Also a member of the Programming Committee for the Great Lakes Beadworkers Guild (GLBG). And the world wide guild, International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB).
I think doing a Bio is like going to the Dentist! but it's done! lol
