I live in Portland, OR with a very creative and resourceful Cuban exile. He is not just supportive of my work, he also does my photography. I've been doing various arts and crafts for most of my 46 years. And I have always loved jewelry. Finally, the two came together when I began to discover the amazing work being done by bead artists these days (see some of my favorites below) and I began my own journey into this medium. Thank you for visiting my site, and I welcome any comments.
