These are a few things that I always get asked about making and selling my designs and about teaching my designs, these are my polices:

You may use these instructions for your personal use only. You may not reproduce or copy these instructions except to make a working copy for your personal use, so the original stays in good shape.

You may not teach this project or give or sell these instructions for profit. Please respect my right as a beader, author, and artist-as this is how I make my living.

You may give the finished beading project as a gift-I would be thrilled. Please give me artist credit.

You may sell my designs as finished pieces in limited quantities. Please give me artist credit. And this is very important; please do not undermine the art of beading by underselling or under valuing by discounting the finished beadwork pieces you make to sell.

The items on my workshop page are currently just for workshops and I will not be offering these pieces as kits until I have finished teaching them. You are welcome to let me know of your interest and I will place your email in a file for future reference with the design becomes available as a kit.

Should you have a question about a kit or instructions; my instructions have my contact information at the bottom of each page.

Also, if you should have a question about instructions; please email me: I need the page, section and step number you have a question about. It makes it much easier to assist you.

Please Contact Me for Questions and to be Placed on My Mailing List.

I promise to only contact you for shows, important updates,
and kit releases.
Thank you for interest in my work!

I use some after market coated Swarovski crystals. These after market coatings may be somewhat more fragile. When stitching these crystals be careful not to dig or scrap your needle into the crystal front or back.

I do check all crystals before packaging for quality control. I do not send out chipped or scraped crystals. I personally have had no issues.

I can not replace these crystals if you dig or scrape the crystal.

ALSO, please coat your crystal back with finger nail polish to prevent wear on the crystal point.
