Lori Ahlin

I was born and raised in Southern California, then moved to Henderson, Nevada in 1996. I was working in the assisted living industry when the economy crashed and was grateful that my hobby turned into a job at the local bead shop, Bead Jungle.

Inspired by my Mom’s lifelong creativity, I have always been involved in arts and crafts, with beading becoming my passion in 2004. I have loved being a designer and instructor in the Las Vegas area and with Vegas being a tourist destination, have enjoyed the opportunity to teach students from all over the world.

I like to have fun, I have a twisted sense of humor, a boisterous laugh and I am excited to share my love of beading with others. Currently, I am on a road trip, living the gypsy life, so you never know what time zone I will be traveling through or where you might find me!

I teach classes in Beadweaving, Bead Embroidery, Kumihimo and Leather Wraps and have recently started selling my patterns on Facebook. Check out my page: LABeadBox
