Seed Bead Stories

August 29, 2021

     I've been working feverishly on new pieces for an upcoming exhibit, "Seed Bead Stories".   I firmly believe that jewelry should have a story, and that's my focus for this collection.  This could be in the design, or it could be through the materials used.   These are unique pieces - you won't run into someone at the store wearing the same piece!

    Right now the collection includes necklaces with petrified wood (image left), fossilized dinosaur bone, Fordite (aka Motor City Agate, or Detroit Agate), and Ammonites.

Bead Discussions Begin Here

August 2, 2021

     My first-ever blog entry. I'm not sure how often I'll be adding entries, but have to start somewhere!  Right now I'm working on pieces for an art exhibit running from mid-September to mid-November in downtown Cary (more details later).  My concept is Storytelling with Jewelry - I believe jewelry should have components that tell a story, or have a story behind them.  For example, this piece on the left is one of my latest.  The story on this is the stone in the middle - it's a piece of history, fossilized dinosaur bone.
