The Blue Necklace


The blue necklace is part of my personal collection. My grandmother bought the focal bead for me as a gift at the West Michigan Bead Expo in Grand Rapids. I completed the rest of the necklace during my stay in Germany.

Fringe is Fun


This is my most recent loomed piece. This is my first split-loom necklace, as well as the first that involves such steep angles. My favorite aspect of this piece is the fringe. The eye is drawn to the V-shape and the fingers are drawn to the fringe. I find that there is something irresistable about running my fingers through fringe, whether it be beaded or made of thread.
