After a career as a journalist and a high-tech marketer, Julia indulged her creativity by learning to bead. During the past decade, she has shown her jewelry at many juried art shows across the Northwest.
Julia’s art is called beadweaving: sewing tiny and larger beads together with a needle and thread.
She uses many different techniques to experiment with color, texture and shape in her designs. These include loom work, soutache, bead embroidery and some wirework.
