About the Artist

I have always been creative in dressing and decorating my surroundings. I was drawn to beading through pain. It seemed to focus my mind. It was like stepping outside myself to say “did I do that”.

About the Work
The medium used are juju beads, old jewelry, anything with unusual shapes and forms. I really like using sentimental pieces from love ones to create a special remembrance.
