The Devon Ashley Collection
Inver Grove Heights, MN
I enjoy working with the rich textures and colors of bead embroidery, combined with embossed leather and unusual gemstones and fossils. I have a background as a painter, so I usually first paint my designs onto beading foundation, then create a beadwork bezel for the focal item. Then I will embroider the design. Many of my pieces have 5000 or more individually stitched glass seed beads.
