Bead Crochet Ropes: Depending on length, these ropes can be worn as chokers or longer necklaces. Also, they can be a vehicle for displaying your favorite pendant or family heirloom. They are called ropes because the original ones were crocheted with pearl cotton and had the feel of a clothesline (rope). Using topstitch polyester is the best of both worlds. The ropes can be made with different size seed beads, fire polished Czech beads, crystals, pinch beads or most anything with a hole. I have hundreds of colors to choose from for your custom order. Prices start at $50 for a 17" choker.

Bead Crochet Necklaces with Focal Bead: These are unique bead crochet necklaces. No two are the same! Each one features a beautiful semiprecious stone or one-of-a-kind lamp work bead made locally or by an award winning glass artist from Albuquerque, NM. The pictures do not capture the depth of color and purchasers usually remark at how much more beautiful the piece is compared to the pictures. Most are 18" in length with a 5" extender and can be custom sized. They are individually priced starting at $50 for the necklaces with the small curved glass beads.

Bottle Brush Bead Crochet Necklaces: As mentioned in "About the Artist", these necklaces were inspired by the Bottle Brush flowers native to Arizona. This is another one of my original designs.

Garland Bead Crochet Necklaces: My first necklace in this original design was made with an assortment of Czech pink drop beads. It reminded me of a garland of roses. Since then I created several other necklaces using different colors and combinations. One of my favorite necklaces is shown as the icon and is called "Indian Corn". These start at $75.

Custom Orders: This is my favorite section of the website. The necklace on the left was designed as a gift to the owner of a champion Dalmatian. Thumbnail picture (icon) #2 shows the seed beads my friend Debbie picked to match the cranberry-colored focal bead she bought. The gorgeous Peruvian opal was given to me. It's priceless and its MINE. The lavender necklace and earring set is a surprise gift to be given in February. The last challenge was to design a necklace to match Flo's V-neck floral dress.
