About me

Industry Fashion
Occupation Jewelry Designer
Location Beaverton, Oregon, United States
Introduction I am a published jewelry designer. I offer a wide variety unique designs handmade in the USA...many pieces feature artisan beads and pendants. Most of my designs are one of a kind. I've always been a creative person but about 13 years ago I discovered by love of beads. I started making beaded wire for decorating wine and champagne glasses but soon moved to earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. I am completely self taught and have yet to meet a technique I couldn't learn. I love to challenge myself. In July, 2012 I was published for the first time. I have had several other pieces published and continuing submitting for publication on a regular basis. 2013 turned out to be an exciting year! I did my first wholesale/trade show in April and met many wonderful people, as well as a mentor to guide me through this new venture. I may have even picked up a major retailer in my area...I will share more details when available! I am very excited about this next step. On a personal note, I am also a happy wife and very proud mother of a teenage daughter and grown up son.I am also doting mom to several fur babies...it's a good life!
