The Red Bead



On October 14, 2016 our home and my business burned to the ground in the Little Valley Fire in Nevada. The cause of the fire was determined to be a prescribed burn conducted by the Nevada Department of Forestry.

All inventory is gone as well as my studio/shop. The house and all contents are a total loss as well.

I was in the process of updating the online store and relaunching my own line of artisan jewelry and components but, for obvious reasons, that will be delayed. If you would like to be kept posted on the progress, please subscribe to the newsletter if you not already a current subscriber.

Thank you for your past patronage and your friendship.
