Over the past 14 years she has been designing & creating beaded jewelry. Each piece is made with small seed beads that are woven together using fishing fireline. The fireline helps to ensure that each piece will be secure & wearable for years to come. When designing pieces, colors & beads are chosen to give a vintage feel. She has won several first place awards at the New York State Fair & was the Best of Show winner in the 2015 fair.
