My rope designs combine the ancient art of beadwork and crochet, and incorporate a large number of glass beads that are crocheted into a rope measuring anywhere from 8" to 58" in length. They are then embellished with pendants or semi-precious stones such as carnelian, jasper and turquoise to name a few. These one of a kind rope designs are most often knotted and worn as a necklace or as a belt. Shorter ropes are worn as chokers, lariats and bracelets.
For my delicate designs, I utilize the techniques of wire wrapping and knotting on silk cord or flexible wire. My earrings, necklaces and bracelets incorporate a varied mixture of semi-precious stones and Swarovski crystals with the whimsical shapes of vintage Czech glass beads.
