Classes, Trunk Shows, Book Signings, Retreats & Other Events

For over 20 years as the creative artist behind Humblebeads, I have shared my knowledge of beading and jewelry making with students in local bead shops and bead societies. I also host bead retreats and the annual Bead Cruise.

Sharing my creativity and inspiration with students is one of my passions. My classes focus on empowering students to discover the fun and forgiving organic qualities of nature inspired jewelry, within a relaxed environment.

Beadwork with tiny seed beads, metal & wire work, and playing with resin as a bead making medium are just a few of the techniques you will learn in the array of classes instructed by me. You emerge from class with a handmade memento and a new skill.
