Susan took a basic stringing class at a local bead shop in 2002 and got hooked! A trip to the Bead and Button show in 2004 launched her business career after learning kumihimo; creating her business, Bead-N-Sisters, with her two sisters, at that time. Susan loves to explore different materials to use in her designs, often mixing medias. Most recently, Susan has added leathers and Swarovski cupchain to many of her designs. Susan teaches at the Florida West Coast Bead Society, as well as The Bead Society of Palm Beaches and several bead shops on the west coast of Florida. Susan has taught at four of the past bead retreats and looks forward seeing many familiar faces again for 2018!!!
