I have to put together a Bio for the 2016 Charm Exchange and my Guild's Synergy Project, so here is what I have come up with:

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
