My fascination with glass had never been fully realized until the day I found my window sills filled with cobalt blue glass pieces. This would explain, at least in part, my growing interest in glass mosaics, sea glass and Depression glass. My eyes have always been drawn to the bright, jewel-like colors produced by sunlight shining through stained glass. This fascination must be what initially led me to creating beaded jewelry.
To be completely honest, I started by shopping for beads; I wanted to own all the beautiful, shiny colors I could find. In order to justify these acquisitions, I had to use them for something. A couple of classes later and a jewelry maker was born.
