Original designs in bead-woven jewellery as well as note cards and calendars created with original photography.

Beadweaving is the perfect medium for someone who is easily distracted by all things shiny. I have used my years of experience with sewing, knitting, crochet, paint and colour matching to explore this intricate and challenging technique.
Glass, crystal, semi-precious stones and a variety of other elements combine to create every day and special occasion pieces for all ages. I have taken a wide assortment of classes and I am always learning stitches, some of which are hundreds of years old. I have gone on to make my own designs and also to teach classes myself.
