Becky Guzman owns Diakonos Designs, a unique, hands-on art and bead store in Stoughton, WI. She’s been teaching classes at various venues, including Bead & Button, since 2008 and delights in teaching techniques that open up jewelry making to even the most tentative learners. Her favorite woven leather and chain designs are those that look more complex than they are and offer lots of color and finish options so the designer can personalize their work. She delights in making wearable and multi-functional designs with a fun, bohemian flair. If you want to entice your non-beading friends with simple and accessible jewelry making, these classes and kits are just the ticket. Becky believes the therapeutic and creative aspects of jewelry making should be available to every motivated learner, so the majority of her designs are inexpensive, easy to make and take less than 3 hours to complete.
