This is where it all began. I had been collecting beads for many years but it wasn't until my son got married several years ago that I took it to the next level. I needed to make something to match my "mother of the groom" outfit. Once I did my first piece, I just kept on going. By going to bead shows and finding some great web sites, I found one-of-a-kind beads that I bought directly from the artist. Some of these beads are glass lampwork and some are made from polymer clay.

Check here later for samples of my beaded work.
