I am so honored to be named one of Beadwork Magazines Designer of the Year for 2018. I will have a new project in each issue (6 total) for this year. I also get featured on their website and blog with an additional write up in one of the issues. I cant wait to show everyone the necklaces and bracelets I work very hard on for these issues, I think they are my best work. Thanks so much to Lavon and staff at Beadwork, Interweave and F&W Media!

These are super cute and so easy to make. I will prob make these my next tutorial. I may not even charge for them but make them a bonus when you purchase one of my other tutorials! Still figuring it out! Stay tuned!
I am so happy with all these two hole beads that are out, mostly the Czech line. Superduos, Rulla and now the Czechmates triangles! These beads have really sparked my creativity and I couldn't be happier! From these beads I have put out 3 tutorials and I will be published in a national magazine!
The latest tutorial is made from the new fun triangles! I stitched this up and created what I call "Alligator Tail" since it has the triangles looking like scales and going in two directions. I even offer up two different ways to make the bracelet, offering more design for the money! It is now listed for sale in my shop for $6.50, just click the picture a
Stay tuned as I have 3 more tutorials in the works.
This is a fun new design with triangles going horizontal and vertical. There is a cent core with a Swarovski crystal and it's texture is just so fun to feel! Tutorial to follow next week!
These fun and easy earrings are made of Swarovski chatons, they are crystals with the traditional style cut of a diamond and come in a range of sizes. I used the very popular 39SS, which is just over a 8mm and set them in a setting made from Rullas and seed beads. I also used a larger stone, a 55SS and a 60SS. I also included instructions for connecting them to give you multiple design options! Try them out today, they only take about an hour or less if your more experianced!
