Cindy has been creating jewelry for over 16 years. She and her husband own the Reno Bead Shop, where Cindy teaches a wide range of jewelry classes, including seed bead weaving, wire work, and metalsmithing. When it comes to jewelry construction, Cindy believes in mixing mediums to their fullest. The focus of her work is to use both hot and cold connections to combine seed bead elements with metal and leather pieces.
Her designs have been published in Bead&Button
magazine, as well as numerous other magazines and books. She lives in Reno, Nevada with her three dogs, two daughters, one husband, and way too many turquoise beads to count.
