Front Cover for print edition of Explorations in Freeform Peyote Beading

Available Now

The print edition of Explorations in Freeform Peyote Beading: Designing Original Art Jewelry and Beyond is now available on and through my Etsy Store.

Designed to act as a road map and guide to help you create your own original art, whether it be in the form of jewelry or small, beadwoven sculptures, this is my most ambitious book to date. Over twice the length of either of my previous two books, Explorations' is chock full of all-new, full-color diagrams and illustrations, more photographs, new, in-depth photo essays detailing my design process, as well as the design process of seven featured artists from three countries and three continents. All told, Explorations features the jewelry and sculptural designs of twenty-two artists working in the medium.


For those of you in the area, I'm a member of the NW Bead Society and often teach at Fusion Beads in Seattle, WA. I try to keep the Workshops & Lectures section up-to-date with my potential class offerings as well. If you'd be interested in having me teach for your group or organization, just let me know.
