I teach children at summer camp (Camp Med-O-Lark) - see me at our camp kiln to the right, and adults at the John C Campbell Folk School in the Spring. I do a few Button Shows a year, as today my main work is making Studio Buttons for Button Collectors.

In the slide show at the right, a few of the beaded and cloisonne jewelry is a collaboration with my sister, Susan Jo Rochlin, who did the beading; other beaded pieces I did myself.

Beadwork

I have become a bead freak! I really enjoy bead embroidery and sculptural peyote around objects, like a rock! I was totally inspired by Robin Atkins, who makes beautifully beaded pieces. I make some beaded jewelry, but in general, I make other type of items like wall pieces (some with wearable parts) and accessories like purse mirrors.

Challenges

I like to get involved in beading challenges and projects. Here are some of them...

There are a few different felting techniques. Currently I have only been needle felting, but hope to try the friction method in the future. I really like this technique - it's like painting with fiber.

Soon I will be dying my own "silk hankies" which are also used in felting. This goes along with the silk ribbon I dye for my ribbon and bead embroidery.

  • Buttons - can also be worn as pendants or pins
  • Accessories - eye glass cases, pouches, purses and more
  • Purse Mirrors that are small works of art for your coffee table or to carry in your purse
