Hi Everyone!
Most of you know that I have been in the beading world for close to 50 years. I sold my first piece of bead work when I was 14 on the streets in San Francisco, CA. and from there it has been one adventure after another. I have taught more people how to bead than carter has liver pills. LOL ( very old saying.) A very large portion of them started businesses. I have been published over 400 times, have developed products and techniques for out industry and am a part of a world that just keeps expanding. It is amazing to see how traditional beading techniques from all over the world have evolved and are embraced to form new and wonderful beading concepts. Soutache isn't new by any means, however the jewelry being produced using this technique is; vibrant in color and exotic in shape. The creative mind can use this form of art to achieve not just jewelry but fine art as well. I am again excited to still be around to see the great changes in the beading world.
