The Heart of Texas Bead Retreat
a celebration of artists and friends
About me – I love to bead and (according to my bank account) I’ve never met a bead I didn’t like. I love every single beadweaving stitch, both old and new, but my heart belongs to Peyote. Peyote has the ability to make smooth, organized, work which is perfect for the logic-loving side of me; and freeform peyote which allows my artistic self to laugh with joy at the illogical beauty of bumpy ‘unexpected pleasures’ pieces.
About The Heart of Texas Bead Retreat – I have been a Solitary Beader since I began beading over 20 years ago. Recently I discovered the joy of beading with a group and the Heart of Texas Bead Retreat was created. I am a one-woman show, creating Heart of Texas Bead Retreats is a soul-satisfying endeavor and I am blessed to have wonderful memories from each and every Retreat. With Summer and Fall events each year, my goal for Heart of Texas is to offer workshops presented by a balanced blend of well-known and emerging designers. I am excited to bring these exceptionally talented artists together with a delightful group of beaders (who are artists in their own right as well); and to add to the vibrant flow of creative energy in Austin and beyond. I hope you will come bead with us and be inspired through your Heart of Texas Bead Retreat experience.
