Lisa Krupp-Dooley

Lisa Krupp-Dooley Lisa is a self-taught jewelry designer and hobbyist who began beading in high school and has continued to enjoy beading for over 30 years. In 2016, she entered her first on-line original design competition with Potomac Bead Company. The entered design was a necklace named Dazzling Duos and placed 14th out of the 50 entries. In 2017, she participated again in the Potomac Bead Company Design Challenge, entering my original necklace design entitled Ava’s Planet. This piece did even better than the previous one, taking 5th place out of 100 participants. Later that same year (in 2017), Lisa was asked to co-design a necklace with her friend and co-designer, Maggie Thompson, owner of Maggie T Designs. Maggie designed a Kumihimo lariat necklace using the Ava’s Planet beaded bead as the focal beads. The collaborated necklace was published in Maggie’s third E-Book, 10 Kumihimo Patterns to Braid: Kumihimo Bracelet & Necklace Patterns with Shaped Beads. Lisa is a current member and former Board member of the Upper Midwest Bead Society (UMBS), a 25 yr old organization for beaders and jewelry makers in this area founded by Diane Fitzgerald.
