I now call “Home” Alabama…..I’m a Bama chick who isn’t into football….shhhhh, don’t tell them I only live for ‘Beads’.  I’m just the “designer” who keeps them in trendy jewelry made with their favorite team colors.  
I relocated from Las Vegas where I started my jewelry designing career.  I took my first lesson from Bead Haven for my birthday….a present to myself…..and started teaching my own designs a year later.  It has almost been three years of teaching and designing and I still love every minute of it.  I will have my first pattern published in December’s issue of Bead & Button.  As well, I sell my patterns through (embellishedbyrose) and by Bead Haven at several of the national bead shows. 
I am a mother of six… first five children are boys…; you can imagine how special my little girl is to this family.  I am especially blessed because my daughter, now 12, shares my passion for beads.  Her color palette keeps me thinking outside the box when I design.  
I studied Interior Design in college and have always been one of those creative, crafty girls that have taught myself many trades.  By far, this has been my favorite and true passion.  The colors, shapes, textures and patterns of beads are never ending and make me feel like a little girl in the ‘candy store’.  I can never get enough.  I love textiles…so I even try my hand at recycling denims and old worn out items by incorporating my love of fibers into my works of art as well.
