Artist Statement
I started with the bead loom and seed beads and progressed to other bead weaving stitches like peyote, brick, and herringbone. I've always been partial to weaving with glass beads because of the mixture of color and texture. Last year, I started using stainless steel hex nuts as beads. The resulting bracelets and necklaces have a comforting heft and slinkiness as well as some hardware sparkle.
