General crafting has always been a large part of Rebecca’s life, but it wasn’t until adulthood that she discovered the true joys of beadwork. As a self-taught bead artist and jewelry designer, she operated a brick and mortar store, selling her jewelry and other gift items for several years before deciding to sell exclusively online and at art shows.
Rebecca’s unique jewelry designs have won several awards and have been featured in industry leading magazines. Her most recent award, a Gold Medal President’s Award from Fire Mountain Gems and Beads, was received for designing a lighted chandelier featuring over 6,000 Swarovski crystals.
It is often easy to spot Rebecca’s work by the bright colors and intricate detail of her pieces. Influenced by the colors and patterns of day-to-day life, she is always seeking new shapes and color combinations to add to her designs.
