My love for beads started with my Baba making me seedbead necklaces when I was a little girl. When my Baba passed away the only thing I took was a coffee tin full of beads. I have been designing jewelry since I was 14 years old.
And when I was 25 realized that what I wanted to be when I grew up which was a jewelry designer. It only took me a gazillion odd jobs to learn that.
2000, I took my first lampwork bead course and it has been my obsession
By the way I still have the coffee tin of beads, some of the beads have changed but the passion is still there.
This is what my studio in Cold Lake looks like right now. Roy just built me the cool shelving for my glass rods. I am quite proud of him.
This is how my studio looked in Olds when we just moved into the house. I have come a long way.
