To Betty's Quilting Pages

Welcome to my beading pages.  

When I began quilting years ago I was fascinated by colors, textures, and patterns.  After a few years of quilting I took a beading class and quickly fell in love with this new medium.  Now I simply cannot put down my beading; ideas for new creations pour out of me.

I am fascinated with the numerous and diverse possibilities in beading and am excited about using my own designs for jewelry, wall hangings, ornaments, hat bands, and any objects or spaces that I can see enhanced by beautiful beadwork. I feel that my beadwork takes ordinary objects and makes them stand up and say, "Look at me; Iím different and very special".

My goal is to create the image that is in my head and make a new piece unique and my own.

I am particularly fascinated by the infinite possibilities of integrating colors, textures, and patterns to put together pieces that express my excitement and energy.

I hope you enjoy my work.
If you have any questions, please feel free to
