Studio Tour & Stash Sale!
Sunday, April 11 :: 12 Noon - 3:00 pm MST

Curious about my creative space? Welcome to my studio! It's a little crazy but a fun space, and I'm not shy about color! This is also where I host my summer Teton Bead Retreat, so get a chance to see it in the winter, but also the inside class space which gets very creative. I'll also be pulling out some of my "stash". Some unique resin beads that mimic sea glass but are much lighter, vintage beads, buttons, sterling silver spacers, clasps, and more that don't fit with what I'm designing anymore so you'll get a chance to pick some up at bargain prices.
