What was your inspiration?
Inspired by my Mom, who passed last year, I wanted to design and create an instant heirloom piece. I have now begun a jewelry collection for my three granddaughters. So this is their first piece and another will be added for birthday's and Christmas each year
What are you most proud of?
I believe I succeeded in my aim to design an instant heirloom piece. It looks both classic and traditional in design and has a beautiful neutral coloring.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't be afraid of Free-form or bead-weaving projects!!! I began after reading "Sensational Bead Embroidery" by my Idol Sherry Serafini. It inspired me and provided all the technical advice needed.
