I worked in the banking industry for as long as I can remember, you know one of those boring people you only spoke to when you had to. My Mother had recently retired from her life long job and we were trying to find her a hobby. We decided to look into beading, Mother wasn’t interested; but I was IMMEDIATELY hooked.

I started out small, buying inexpensive beads for myself and family members. Customers at the bank began commenting on my jewelry and wanted to know where I had bought the piece. When I told them I had made them and they were for sale I quickly became a walking jewelry store. Rarely did I make it home with the jewelry I had worn leaving the house.

Now I am retired and design constantly, there isn’t a room in the house that doesn’t have a bead somewhere. Previously I bought jewelry to match my clothes, NOW I buy clothes to match my jewelry.
