Bead & Button classes

I was accepted to teach classes at the 2017 Bead and Button show, however, with the current political climate in the United States and the difficulty in crossing the border, I've decided to forgo teaching in 2017.

All the best to the instructors and students in the upcoming Bead and Button Show; enjoy the Show!

Below are the classes I taught in 2016. If you would like to purchase the instructions or kits, please email me at

Caldera Christmas Tree

Triangular peyote goes to new heights -- literally! Triangles are the easiest introduction to geometric beading and the most versatile shape to work with -- you will do increases and decreases as you create this special ornament topped off with a genuine Swarovski crystal.

Open Weave Chain Maille on Regaliz Licorice Leather Collar

Combine open weave chain maille, wire, and leather to create this fun to wear collar. A sparkling Swarovski pendant completes the look!

Infinitely Herringbone Bracelet

This fun and reversible bracelet is quick to make and features the new Infinity Beads. The beaded edging gives the bracelet a great profile.
