More About the Author
I am very passionate about crystals and have been stitching them into jewelry for many years, ever since I discovered beading in the early '90s. My many years of designing projects, teaching, and editing has given me a lead on what interests beaders at all levels of experience.
In 2009, I was named an ambassador for the CREATE YOUR STYLE with CRYSTALLIZEDtm - Swarovski Elements program, a handpicked network of 34 designers worldwide who are passionate about and prolific in using these Austrian crystal beauties in their projects and as they teach. I am also an associate editor for Bead&Button magazine and author of the "Ask Anna" column.
My first book, Crystal Brilliance, was published in 2010. I have also contributed projects to many publications including Creative Beading Volumes 1-4 and 6, Get Started Beading, Beaded Necklaces, Beadwoven Jewelry, Chic&Easy 2, Your Seed Bead Style, A Year in Earrings, Seed Bead Savvy, and Stitch Workshop: Peyote Stitch.
