About Pamela

I have been beading for 25 years and teaching beading for about 18 years. I especially love Japanese seed beads in size 11 and size 15 and finally delicas due to a very generous friend who put lots of them in my hands. I will always go to my seed beads first but Delicas have a solid place in my beading room now. I especially love teaching other people about beading.

Experience in the area:

I teach the following stitches/projects: peyote, brick, helix, netting, St Petersburg chain, spiral rope, Dutch spiral, beaded pens, beaded Christmas ornaments, earrings, pouches, necklaces, bracelets – just about anything beaded, I have tried it.
