When I feel stressed by the outside world, I start creating with colorful beads to help my mind relax.
Most recently, I met a lovely man who wished my bracelets were more unisex or specifically for men. That inspired me to purchase gemstones and natural wood beads and make gender neutral bracelets. The first grouping can be purchases at the Ocean Blue Vault on Main St. in HMB. More will be added to my online shops soon.
A design I created several years ago is long and beaded so it can be worn as a single or doubled necklace, but also wrapped several times for a bracelet. They are so comfortable, you won't even know you're wearing something on your wrist. I use many colors in each, so they are versatile and are particularly great for travel. Each necklace has 70 to 100 beads.
I love cuffs, so designed and created a series by building the frames, then beading each in different colorways. I occasionally make earrings to match the cuffs.
I'm obsessed with the glass beads I purchased in the countryside of Czech which can be seen in many of my designs.
