Hello, my name is a Carol Dean Sharpe and I'm addicted to beads.

As the newest Love My Art Jewelry member, I guess I should introduce myself.  I'm Carol Dean Sharpe, also known as Sand Fibers in certain circles.  I'm a seed beader and thus surprised (yet absolutely delighted) to find myself here.

While I am probably best known for my peyote cuffs and patterns, few things bring me as much pleasure as working with gorgeous components that other artists have created.  Here are just a few samples of how I try to incorporate bead art into my bead woven pieces.



Rumor has it that I get to post to this blog twice a month. What I hope to do with these posts, beginning with my post on April 23rd is to share new creations with you, including some process photos.  I'll show you how I work with someone else's components as well as how I use bead weaving to create my own components.  The first thing I have scheduled for us to work on is a simple (peyote) beaded bead to add to strung pieces or use as a focal in an easy "add a bead" project,


so please be sure to come back on the 23rd.  Thank you!
