Spring, 2017 - Shows UPDATE


In order to focus my efforts on e-commerce, I am doing fewer shows than in past years.

This allows me more time in the studio, which means more time for new work, and more time for writing up my  research into mainland Chinese beadwork.

To be notified when I will be doing a show in your state, please subscribe to my mailing list by visiting this page:


Or, email me and ask about a specific show - I'll be happy to respond: 


Thank you for your interest in my work.
