at the many things I can teach you, get in touch with me, and set up a time to learn one or more of these techniques. Contact via e-mail. I live in St. Charles, MO, one of the many cities that make up the St. Louis metropalitan area. Because I work out of my 

studio, I can generally work around your schedule, and time needs. I love a road trip, and like to take short trips to midwestern cities to teach at bead stores, art center, jewelry making guilds, or bead events. Please feel free to contact me.
