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.
