A magazine at Barnes and Noble started the obsession with beads. I knew it was an obsession after tipping my pickle dish of seed beads to the floor not once but twice. Each time I vacuumed them up with a knee high stocking; I separated the beads by color and picked out the dirt and cat hair.
Bead and Button, Beadworks, and Lapidary Journal magazines, as well as classes at NH Institute of Art, have influenced my work from my first square stitch bracelet to my current love of soldering, riveting and setting of cabochons. Crafting came early in my life, Mom and Dad were makers. My mom told me that I had too much “stuff” during one of her visits to New Hampshire; she meant all my crafting materials. She was surprised when I told her that it had been her influence while growing up. No matter what project I came up with she had the materials to execute my creation. I even got into my Dad’s tools.
I haven’t met a craft I didn’t want to try, now I’m trying to focus exclusively on jewelry.
