Wow, your beadwork is amazing! How long have you been beading for? Do you use a bead loom to make your jewelry?

Thanks so much! I'm glad you like my gallery. I mostly work in off-loom techniques, like Peyote, brickstitch and Ndebele, though I do have a bead-loom.

A few questions on your Incredible works here! Would you do a choker-style necklace, and If so What would the Price-Range be for one?
Everything is just so magnificent!

Thanks so much! I'd be happy to work with you on a commission. The pricing would depend a little on the size and materials, for example a simple, netted band could be as low as $40, an ornate and complex brick-stitch or peyote piece with a lot of gold vermeil beads could run as high a $110. If you want to note me with some ideas regarding style, materials, even pieces that you like from the gallery and would like to have adapted to a choker I can probably pin it down better for you.

These are all so beautiful! How do you fasten your bracelets for wearing?

Thanks so much! It depends: the ruffles and the wing bracelets all have bead-and-loop closures, the delica cuffs are mostly measured so that I can wear them as a seamless cuff that just slips over my hand and onto my wrist. However, when I do those for others unless I can get exact measurements I often do them as push-button closures. They still look seamless, but are easier to put on and take off.
