“Nature, the elements, cultures, and life inspire me.  My passion is to create jewelry that invokes energy, peace, and healing to the wearer. This is how I express my inner being. 
I bead how I live my life...lightly dusted with form.” 

Holly’s woodland home is in King George, Virginia with her husband Bob.  She has two grown, free-spirited sons. She has been beading for over twenty years; her hidden talent for bead embroidery emerged with help from Heidi Kummli in 2014. Holly’s eclectic designs are indicative of her “out of the box” thinking. 

Holly teaches private and group bead embroidery workshops in her home studio and online through Zoom. She also leads workshops regularly at a bead store near her home.
