I grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and have a B.S. in Business Administration from Northeast Missouri State University, now Truman State University. I moved to Jackson, Mississippi in 1994 and then to Long Beach, Mississippi in 1998. So in 2018, I will be celebrating living on the coast for 20 years.
My journey into jewelry making began in 2015. It started with simple wire stringing and some chain mail. A short time later I began bead weaving and it quickly became a passion for me. I also do copper and brass etching and create some really unique pieces. I absolutely love to make jewelry and find it very relaxing. I also teach bead weaving to others who want to learn patterns and techniques.
