  1. OMG Karen your work is exquisite. The iris is so real that unless you get close, it doesn’t look like beadwork. Do you ever teach your skills? Thank you for sharing. It’s a pleasure to see what you do.


    • Thank you so much for you comments. I do teach beading, but just the basics. I have a website, and am on instagram if you wish to see some of my latest creations. Do you bead? What creative things do you enjoy doing?

      Thanks again, Happy Spring, Here is my phone #210`296`8794, if you wish to text me. All the best, Karen
