Shibori Shimmer

I jumped on the Shibori bandwagon and created this bracelet using a fused glass focal piece from a friend.  Pearls, O beads, crystals, flower sequins, seed beads and shiny metallic threads were added.

Untitled bracelet

Focal lampwork bead from Alana.  I simply added metal sequins and crystals oval to a leather-like base.  The focal speaks for itself.

Easy breezy bracelets

These bracelets use braiding and ribbon fibers to incorporate an easy bead embroidery.

Lamplight Necklace

A commissioned piece.  Lampwork bead from Alana.  Crystal beaded beads mimic the focal bead and are connected with an Ndebele rope.


I brought the Many Faces of Buddha head back from SE Asia.  The head begged for a mixed media project.  An recycled M&M dispenser was used for the body.  Vintage jewelry, a small buddha and "arms" were attached to the body.  It was finished off with Joss paper.
