I have designed and made needle woven bead work for 20+ years. As a student of history my jewelry is often influenced by fashions popular in other time periods.
The work is needle woven with beads, semi-precious gemstones, pearls and found treasure in an ancient technique to produce wearable art as seen in many cultures around the globe. My designs incorporate the techniques and materials to produce a modern chic look. The weaving is intricate and often three-dimensional using needle and thread mostly one bead at a time.
