I'm an independent jewelry designer, supply seller, and author of seven books, including the craft bestseller Teach Yourself Visually Jewelry Making & Beading. I've also written for About.com Beadwork and BellaOnline.com, and you might catch a glimpse of me demonstrating projects on old reruns of the DIY Network show Jewelry Making.
On this site you'll find information about my books, downloads to supplement them, and links to my free projects both here and on About.com. I'll also share my latest favorite finds on Etsy and Ebay, including the best vintage and Bohemian home decor discoveries that I just can't keep to myself. Occasionally I'll feature other interesting books, projects, and websites. Let me know if you think there's something I should see.
