Beading, working with gourds, and making jewelry are now a major part of my life in Riverton, Wyoming. I enjoy working with gemstones, all different types and sizes of beads, as well as making my own glass beads. Beading lets me express myself. Another beading art form that I create are from locally grown gourds (Horse Creek Gourds, Newell, SD) that are made into purses and cabochons. These are then accented with beading.
