I love collaborating with other artists. Here are some of my recent collaborative efforts:
This piece was done with my good friend and fellow beader Donna Pagano Denny. She loves detailed seed bead work and hates stringing. I love to string and don't have the time for detailed seed bead projects. She's been mailing me her embellished cabochons and I have been turning them into beautiful necklaces. You can see more of Donna's work in the 15th anniversary issue of Bead & Button.
This spider pin has a polymer clay head and body. The polymer clay work was done by my good friend and artisan Liz Smith of Made in Lowell. I was looking for some Valentine-ish colors, and she was happy to accommodate!
This last piece is one I did with The Intuitive Garden. While in her studio, I was admiring this pendant and said that I had an idea for a necklace. She was kind enough to let me work with it to make this funky fiber and bead necklace.


  1. I love the funky fiber necklace and pendant. What great colors and love the design!

  2. You are so easy to work with! I love seeing the results of these collaborations, always interesting.
