I've been working with beads since I was a kid (over 40 years now) and have taught beadwork classes for all ages at medieval recreation events, at Embroidery Guild of America meetings, and independently out of my home, as well as demonstrating beading techniques as a docent at various California State Parks. My gemstone bead jewelry as featured in this class was recently accepted as part of the "Made In Mariposa" local artisan program and is for sale in the Mariposa County visitor and tourism center.
