Fall Show & Trunk Show Run!!!

Going on the road again this fall! Finally after three years, it's been a long haul but I'm glad to be going out again and getting a chance to see so many of my bead friends across the country and to show off all the new designs I've created during this time at home. Click here for the schedule.

Welcome to the Tetons!

Check out our AirBNB rooms
Grand Teton Master, Serene Teton Room,
Chic Teton Getaway

Located in the tiny city of Tetonia in the Teton Valley. Come bead with me and escape to the stunning wide open spaces here in the Tetons! Lots to do for the non-beaders while you get your bead on!

I run an AirBNB at my home and studio throughout the summer where I pamper guests with yummy fresh baked goods for breakfast and other treats to start your day right.

Head out to explore Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Parks while staying with us! We are AirBNB hosts and have two rooms available plus my chic trailer for the single explorer. Take a day between exploring and come take a class or just bead in my studio or out on the fabulous deck! Lots of space to spread out and enjoy.

During the summer hot air balloons often cross in front of our deck overlooking the Tetons, and over the 4th of July weekend there is a balloon fiesta. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee with the sunrise over the Tetons and the possibility of hot air balloons floating by!

Kimono I - Spring

Okay, "Spring" has come and gone, but I've finally finished the second in my kimono series for my new book "Four Seasons Kimono".

I love how the fringe and necklace came out. Playing with peyote tube beads and linking them for a waterall of strands, and fun with the lower fringe with loopy overlapping strands.

The colors in this are so hard to photograph, soft frosted spring greens and yellow with the cream and rich reds of the poppies. The kimono has pale lavendar and frost silverlined white patterning and the color block is actually a rich deep marigold color with a sprinkling of tangerine accents. If you've ever seen any of my other designs in person, you know the photos on the website just don't do them justice.

PATTERN ONLY  $14.00  
COMPLETE KIT $114.00

Interested in Beading & Art Retreats?

I'll be planning more retreats. To find out more click here or sign up for my beading retreat newsletter. The Retreats will be open sessions. Enjoy working inside or outside overlooking the Teton Mountains. You can learn anything I have kitted in my studio or pulled from my HUGE bead stash, OR you can bring a beading project you've needed help with! There will be beading, applique quilt designs, and who knows what else available by then for you to explore and create!


Applique Art Quilt Designs!

Click here to see the quilt designs. Working on getting back to the "drawing board" again. I love to draw and creating these different designs are so much fun. If you have a pattern idea e-mail it to me. If you want your fluffy buddy imortalized in fabric, I do custom designs, .75 cents per sq. inch., portrait with placement and color code chart. If it's one I'd like to use as a design for retail and it's okay with you, you will receive the pattern for FREE! Just e-mail me several pictures of your furry friend close up and in action, and his/her name and a little about them. It helps me capture more of their personality.
