Peggy Ward has owned the bead chick in St. Augustine, FL for the past 11 years. Prior to that, she has made things her entire life, starting with counted cross stitch at the age of 3. She obtained her “Painting With Fire” Teacher Certification in 2013, and her Level Two Teacher Certification in PMC in 2011. Peggy dabbles in all-things-jewelry, including polymer clay, silver smithing, copper fold forming and soldering, wire-wrapping, glass fusing, enameling, PMC, art books and encaustic media, painting, and more. Originally a fiber artist, Peggy often incorporates fabric, yarns and wool into her pieces, as well. She WILL die with the most beads!
