Creating Captivating Beaded Earrings - Thursday 8/5 5PM - 6:30PM
My passion for jewelry making began as a hobby as a teenager, looking to create pieces that couldn’t be found in any store and could tell a story about who I am as an individual. What began as creating colorful beads with polymer clay transformed into a business of crafting intricate pieces utilizing a wide variety of materials and techniques for stringing, wireworking, beadweaving, and more.
For nearly a decade, I have been able to share my joy for jewelry making both through my one-of-a-kind designs sold through local artisan festivals and e-commerce, and also by teaching students of all ages how to unlock the power of jewelry making within themselves. It is my goal to support growing jewelers how to create strong and unique pieces of jewelry that bring the joy of this art into their lives.
