Bekki's first experience with beading came during a camping trip in New Mexico, at Chaco Canyon, in 1992. She took the beads with her to play with, and ended up addicted.

A friend (thank you, Andrea!!!) taught her peyote stitch that summer, and then brick stitch. Since then she has taught herself other techniques. Here are some of the beaded bags and jewelry she has created.
