find your inner bead queen | unleash your creativity

I have been designing jewelry since 1974. I have a great passion for my work and the materials that I use. I taught group classes for over 25 years. I have decided, now, to only teach one on one, which, I believe, is far more enriching for you, if you want to learn technique. If you are a beginner, my tutoring will help you to tap into your creative spirit. If you are an experienced jewelry designer, I can assist you in refining your jewels, and tap into a deeper sense of design. I can teach any techniques that I use in my own work.

While I cannot teach you how to design, I can help you find your voice, as I get to know you. Problem solving, finishing techniques, and wire wrapping are just a few of the things I can assist you with. I encourage you to bring your own work if you are already a designer. If you are a beginner, I can help you get started on this fabulous creative journey with beads!

I live in a beautiful country setting in West Petaluma, California.I teach in a very relaxed and peaceful setting at my dining room table!
