I have to admit that I’m involved in a long term affair - - I fell in love with beading over 15 years ago - - The love affair with beads all started with rock hounding with my wonderful husband Bill.

We have traveled to Mount Ida, AR to dig quartz crystals and Herkimer, NY to mine Herkimer diamonds. We’ve made several trips to many parts of North Carolina to hunt for everything from sapphires to emeralds. After one of our trips, I was thinking, “Can I drill holes in these little stones to make beads and string them? - - hmmmm….” Well that started the beading years…..

Now, I create wonderful works of art that are treasured by many collectors.

Take a look around and see if you find that something special you have been looking for……..Enjoy! Diane, Owner and Jewelry Designer
