June Malone June Malone is an artist who has worked with a variety of materials and media. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in landscape architecture with a minor in art in 1971 and started out doing freelance residential landscape designs. For the past 30 years she has worked with many types of media (e.g., fiber, acrylics, cake frosting, counted cross stitch, needlepoint, and most recently, beads). June began working seriously with beads in 1999 when she needed some jewelry to go with a new outfit. Initially she created simple strung jewelry that matched the character of various outfits of hers. Then, she discovered Delica beads and now creates her own designs for elaborate 1-of-a-kind necklaces and earrings. The themes and color palettes of her one-of-a-kind pieces are influenced by the cultures and colors of the southwestern United States. Prior to her retirement as a VA psychologist in 2012, she beaded part time. Now she is able to bead and develop kits full time. Her Golden Bear design was a finalist in an international Bead Dreams competition in 2004. She has been featured in Beadwork and Bead & Button magazines. Examples of her beadwork designs are displayed on her web site: www.enchantedbeader.com
