Beadweaving is a medium all about composition, color theory, and contrasting textures and finishes. Everything I create is an experiment in making a new idea come to life. Many of these experiments result in small pieces of wearable art. I often also aim to make people smile with silly subject matter or the aha! moment on someone’s face as they discover the focal element they’ve been looking at is actually a found object hiding within the work. The beads themselves bring cheerfulness both into my life and those of the people I meet.
